Hypnotism! (Dream Beats) 


Do you know what the prearranged signal is?

A few moments ago you were hypnotised and told that shortly after awakening, you would be given a signal, which would put you back to sleep again.


Now do you remember? You're awake, aren't you?

A few moments after you have awakened, I shall rap like this...

Don't 😴

Interstellar Alignment 🪐 (MPC One Loops) 

Interstellar Alignment 🪐

Step into the stars with this beat!

I'm back with the Apache Blackgrass. Had a quick stop on the left coast to watch the waves decay. Now I'm back at the control deck locked in with the MPC One, looking out a window facing west towards the Rocky Mountains. Using my imagination to visualize the whole house surrounding me is a spaceship traveling far. Come along for the journey!

Higher Calling (Telephone Loops) 

Phone is ringing, OH MY GOD

Telephone backgrounds on a clear day.

The other day I bought a golden MPC One. The last MPC I had was a 1000 model, and it has been out of commision for several years. The 1000 had grey pads. These new MPCs have buttons that light up in a multitude of colors. It speaks to the early 90s translucent phone with green light up buttons side of me, and I like that.

Here's a fun loopable section of the first beat I made on the new MPC One!

Oak Lonetree "Without A Doubt" (produced by Will C.)

Oak Lonetree "Satellite" (produced by Will C.) 

Time to propel into outer orbit once again 📡

"Satellite" ⭐ The stars aligned for this one!

The melody that comes in at 0:30 is a prayer to Eric B. and Rakim's "My Melody." I played it on a Casio MT-100 to get the vibe right!

Something about the effervescence of Hip Hop in the early days blended with the wondermint of students in science class circa 1979 really inspires me and moves my soul.

Old School 80s BMX Bike Footage ✨🚴✨ Compilation 

Short compilation of 80s era BMX bike footage.

Starts with segments from the cult classic film "Rad," and then shifts into some more obscure and lost-to-VHS fuzzy memories. Music: "Air Man" by Will C.

Other Shores, Other Worlds 🌎 

"Other Shores, Other Worlds" is a new song, but the familiar feeling it evokes is drawing from a forever cycling vibration the cosmos are sending out even right now, at this very moment.

Composed on a long lost to time, recently resurrected Synergy I synthesizer. In its heyday, this unique instrument was used extensively by music icon Wendy Carlos, whose credits include film scoring for Stanley Kubrick's "The Shining" and "A Clockwork Orange," as well as "TRON." The Synergy was a contemporary of the Nintendo Entertainment System, and sure enough, sounds are loaded onto the synthesizer via old school video-game style cartridges.

In Life, With Love ⛈️ (Rain) 

For every kalimba pluck, a rain drop...

You feel emotions inside
and you can show them
in time you're older and wise
and you'll be knowing

It takes good timin' in life
it takes good timin' with love

Sometimes it's raining outside
sometimes it's raining in life
I know that you'll be okay
embrace the water in rain

Some friendships last and some fall
and some recover
don't try to master it all
and love your brother

"In Life, With Love"

Music As A Lighthouse 

the feeling you get 
when you're looking for the next song 
to really connect with 
whenever your head strong 
there's always a playlist 
always a lost gem to get you through phases 
and then when you find it, you're outta your head 
your into the skyline  
and centered again

Above is a set of lyrics I wrote yesterday while working on a new song. Music is a very special gift. Life can be difficult at times. My hope for you is that in every phase of life, you can pull from the infinite well of sound and rhythm, and in doing so, you can be empowered to carry on and weather the everchanging forces this world presents.
