GET IT was recorded in Brooklyn, NY in 2016 - with the exception of "Nuddy Buddy" which was recorded by and with Dr. Bliss at THE BOOTY FACTORY in Atlanta, GA. Thank you Dr. Bliss for your dirt nasty bass lines and engineering skills!!! Crushing it!
The music on this album, and its title (title track) are expressions and reflections of what is currently going on and relevant in both my life and the world at large - a need for change, personal and social, individual and collective... you listen to the music you'll get the idea

And yet again, for the 4th straight album - A special thank you to Aaron Hyzen for his mixing and mastering skills, without which this record would not sound nearly as amazing as it does.
Aaron is straight killin it, and it goes without saying, although I'll say it anyway, that a large part of my sound, the vibe of my records, are very much the result of my collaborations with Mr. Hyzen. Aaron and I aren't going to stop pushing until we start approaching some kind of Nigel Godrich/Radiohead level of insanity. Can't thank you enough homie!!
Aaron is the proprietor and engineer/producer at Nothing But Air Studio located in Williamsburg, BK - he'll set you up nice AF and make you sound real good. This man's talents are, only for now, available at some incredible prices. GET AT HIM!!!!
