Okay! Let’s say you have a static minor chord that you want add some REAL tension to, or you have some kind of obviously phrygian chord progression, like Eb major, to Db major, to C minor. Then it’s time to use phrygian. The best thing about this? Phrygian is a minor scale with a flatted […]
Okay, to continue the idea of the last post, we’re going to superimpose pentatonic major scales over a minor chord/key to make dorian. First of all, what is the sound of dorian? The best pop tune example is Oye Como Va. You get a minor one chord, and a major four chord. Another example is […]
Whenever I get asked what I’m working on, I always stumble around over words, because I never have anything recent up. So here are some tracks and beats I’m currently working on. I also have an EDM release coming out on February 5th from Beat Cutterz!

This is a remix of Take Me To Church by Hozier for promotional purposes only. This song changes meter, and it was fun to figure out how to do a dubstep beat for the verses, which are in 3, without making it an obvious waltz feel. Hope you enjoy, and as always please like and […]
This piece was written for a pole dancing competition (yes, apparently that’s a thing). The request was for “classical strings with dubstep,” and I think I did a pretty good job of integrating the strings with the glitches.
