i'm working on an EP

... and it's almost done.

it sounds like nothing i've really ever put out before;

i'm taking myself on a musical journey -

inspired by my hometown.

i'm done being a 'beatmaker' for a while.

i'm a musician & i have things to say that i can't just say with samples

i'm baring my soul here and it feels pretty damn amazing to take this risk

i hope you enjoy the journey & stick around for what's next

"look both ways" w/ flamingosis out now

heyo,

happy to announce my second collaboration with another nj beatmaker by the name of flamingosis - this one's a funky house track, a little bit of a departure for both of us. my friends over at Chillhop Music were gracious enough to post an upload to youtube, so you can check it out here:

peace, enjoy, and hope to see you on the 13th in NYC!

nisha - "hard liquor" [EARMILK premiere]

hey all,

those close to me know about a project i've been working on with fellow nyc artist and dear friend nisha for years now - and the first component was released today. it's a song called "hard liquor," and in addition to being the first pop track i've produced as an artist, it's nisha's debut single.

EARMILK did us a huge solid and exchanged some feels with nisha about her gorgeous song. read about that here.

we hope you dig the new sounds!

mid-march update

BIRO JOINS CHILLHOP

hi, everyone!

as some of you may know from a recent facebook post, I'm proud to officially announce my involvement with Chillhop Records as their creative director. basically, i'll be overseeing all the projects that come out of the newly-formed label and making sure they're the best they can be. i'm working directly with artists to improve arrangements, mixes, moods - everything. and my goal is to learn from this experience and from these people, every single day. i'm so excited about joining.

here's a link to their press release about my addition to the team.

we're also putting out an awesome compilation very soon. more details will follow, but expect exclusive new tracks from myself and a handful of other chillhop heavyweights.


SOMETHING COOL

last saturday, march 5th, i co-curated an event in bushwick, nyc called 'something cool.' it was an all-night basement party with beatmakers and DJs from all corners of the internet (who mostly just happened to be based in the nyc area).

the lineup was incredible - and the turnout was insane. many many thanks to everyone who came out, and all the performers as well - tokyo megaplex, keota, off.white, weird inside, cafuné, harris cole, glassio - and to IRL's clint choi for setting up the whole thing.

for my set i tried a little something different, bringing in live instruments and playing rhodes, synth, and bass alongside a bunch of new tracks no one had ever heard before. turns out that was a good call, so i'll be doing much, much more of that soon.

here are some pictures from the show:

the full set of photos can be found here.


#BiroMakesABeet

lastly, i just put out my final track from the #BiroMakesABeet series (at least for a while). it's called "when you're able" and i think you'll dig it.

it's worth mentioning that this beat was made in the final round of season 1 of the BeatFighter competition, an online rhythm roulette-style beat battle that brought together bedroom producers from all over the place to basically flex on each other.

it's expertly run by a dude named Hoodrow Trillson, and i have to thank him for selflessly putting in all the work to make it happen. you can check out their twitch here.


that's it for now, hang tight for more news.

I have a busy autumn ahead of me.

 

There are like 30 projects I'm involved in, most of which I can't tell you about.

But the ones I can tell you about, I wanted to, here. Not on facebook where they don't let anyone see it, nor on twitter where I can only write 10 words at a time.


- ONE -

 
 

In lieu of my weekly #BiroMakesABeet session this week, I'm participating in Beat Fighter tomorrow (Nov. 1st). It's a live-streamed, 3-hour Rhythm Roulette-style beat battle on Twitch. My group starts competing at 3pm EST. To watch my stream, follow me on twitter and I'll post updates as we get closer.


- TWO -

 
 

I have a new track premiering Monday as part of Chillhop Records' first release, Appetizers 1. It's called Sangrilune and will be available for purchase here as well as on Spotify, iTunes, etc. making it my first song on all major platforms!

It's also sample-free, which is cool. And I mastered the entire album too.

There's some exciting new material on there from eleven other really cool artists. Don't miss it.


- THREE -

I've got several collaborations and remixes coming your way. I dropped the first one of these last month; listen here. You'll also hear my beats on a few more label compilations soon.


- FOUR -

I will be releasing a ten-track album before year's end. There will be a pre-order available in November, and singles beforehand.


- FIVE -

I will be releasing an EP after new year's. No extra information on that yet.


Should be a fun time :)
