Heavily influenced by the fast paced controlled chaos of modern Japanese living, Austin’s music is an innovative body of melodic riffs and futuristic percussion that rose to fame in the summer of 2008 after releasing several remixes that many would agree were often better than the originals. Those remixes led to the highly anticipated release of his first album The Constellation which featured various artist performing over his own original compositions, and then again in the fall of 2008 when he released The Pink Tamago featuring Kanye West’s “Love Lockdown” remix that received over 300,000 plays in the first week.
While still riding on the success of his two previous albums Austin began writing to his next album Free Form Music which was his first album featuring his rapping over his own instrumentals. He released “Work It”, a Daft Punk sampled trip hop inspired anthem that received a lot of praise from his fans, but they still weren’t convinced if rapping was cut out for young producer. A month later when he released “Recline to Mayer”, a John Mayer looped riff about the struggles of newer relationships it was made clear that the young artist was here to stay. Those songs were later released on the cd Free Form Music which was digitally released in March 2009, the album remained on the Datpiff top 8 for almost a week and songs from the album are still doing well today.
Austin is currently in his home studio producing full albums for both “MNSTRS” and Cali hip hop artist “TheWerd” along with various artist and groups. He’s also working on his next album “Technicolor” (release date hasn’t been decided) backed by 2008 Kanye West “Sky High” Mixtape presenter DJ BENZI.
