This week has been pretty epic for me in terms of parties and events here in NYC. Two nights ago I ended up at 3×1 denim’s SoHo store – at 15 Mercer – for what I believe was their opening or launch event. As soon as we turned the corner onto Mercer from Grand, we [...]
The illustrious Parisian based Walter Sobcek is back with his single “Miami.” We fell for Walter awhile back with “Traci’s Party,” still one of my most favorite discoveries. Walter is one of the first underground artists we posted about when we first started forthebeat nearly 2 years ago and we feel we’ve grown up right alongside him, [...]
It feels good to be back in New York but man was this last trip to DR much needed. Hanging out with people down there really shows you how much New Yorkers stress and worry, about everything! Could it be that NYC’s celebrated hustle mentality is just a mask for peoples insecurities and anxieties? Does [...]
Nowadays, I have this pressure to be on my “A” game at all times. I can clearly see every mistake I’m making, before I make them, knowing fully well what the consequences will be. Needless to say I am making less and less mistakes everyday and becoming somewhat of a champion at things. I can [...]
Love is defined differently by others. My idea of love is in a different language than yours…

I have some news that will delight you.
Apart from partially disappearing from the face of the Earth due to many many computer mishaps, I’ve been living in a world almost completely En Español. But, with the winter approaching, I’m beginning to settle down on my feet again. You know, I’m not sayin’ I’m about [...]
Feels weird that I haven’t posted in almost a week. There’s really no excuse. Well there is, I mean I’ve been totally swamped with work and academia in this past week. But that’s the lamest of excuses. I feel like it’s only going to intensify in the next couple of weeks…but I’m kinda into it. [...]
I made this song using only sounds from Apple products and Steve’s 2005 Stanford commencement speech. Every instrument, including drums, has been sampled from a Mac product, tuned by ear, and replayed in the context of the song.
I hope you enjoy listening to this as much as I enjoyed making it.
RIP Steve. We’ll miss you.”
