Blastin Into Outta Space!! FUNK SIDE OF THE SUN.. Instrumental tracks are being created now.

Emcees, instrument players & beatmaker/producers come get involved.. have a love for hip hop, jazz, Sun Ra or all of the above.. reach me by email*. Members of the mighty Sun Ra Arkestra including Knoel & Elson have been receptive to my humble tribute.. along with music biz friends in the Daptone & Shabasa Records families .. even a living relative of Sun Ra, Angelica, has personally given her blessing!

If you want to be involved but are unsure of my music background, please see below, thanks. -D

*please be serious & somewhat detailed when replying so it doesn't seem totally sketchy & get deleted.


NY: Bassist in a NYC band on a CD album.. played Tramps Cafe & other Manhattan venues. Introduced Mike Wagner to Gabe Roth & Luke O'Malley who were adding a horn section. I played just one gig with their band Dine-O-Matic & another fill in gig with Martin Perna & his early ska band The DeFactos.. In '96 I did drums for a 7-inch record with Jersey City pop punk band Dirt Bike Annie.

LI, NY: Marched in Fire Department civic parades on drums/percussion annually on Long Island for 10 years until 2007. In 2004, I helped make the first Shabasa Records album. I co-engineered it & played both drums & bass on it. The bands played CBGB & other places in the city including synagogues. In 2005 alone, I earned substantial fees to record & mix local bands ("Red October", "1984", "Party O Five").

RENO, NV: Reno bands formerly a member of include Clarke Brothers (b/v), Southern Cut (g/k), The Heidi Incident (b/v), & Southbound Train (k/g/v). Lastly, I've recorded original music as Phaedrx, played The Worst Little Podcast once & Recycled Records solo acoustic twice.. In '17, mainly due to family reasons (child on the way), I paused cover band to work on FUNK SIDE OF THE SUN & an Equational MC mixtape.
