After coming into contact with the underground electronic music scene of Detroit’s mid 90′s, Tape Machine began his experiments with analog synthesizers and drum machines from the likes of Roland, Moog, Sequential Circuits, and others. It was the experimental and adventurous nature of the sounds coming from the underground electronic music world that inspired an exploratory approach to Tape Machines early beat making.
After soaking in the sounds Detroit had to offer, Tape Machine moved to Arizona to attend The Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences to further his knowledge and understanding of the complete scope of the recording and production processes. Having developed a thorough passion for all things in the audio production world, he moved on to attend California’s Ex’pression College for Digital Arts to round out his media education.
Tape Machine later returned to the Detroit area to continue his work recording and producing underground hip hop and electronic music. Working with some of the areas top hip hop talent, and producing original instrumental work, Tape Machine continues to innovate in both his production approach and his comprehensive knowledge and application of the latest digital audio tools.
