Biography

Greyboy is San Diego producer and DJ, Andreas Stevens, he makes with roots. Also variously known as Dj Greyboy and also contributed to The Greyboy Allstars.

“Soul Mosaic” is the latest Greyboy album, and was recorded 10 years after the release of “Freestylin’,” the first Greyboy full-length album for Ubiquity. The tracks crafted into this fourth Greyboy album include groundbreaking territory for the Southern California based producer/DJ. For the first time he recorded full vocal songs adding a new soulful dimension to his music. The trademark laid-back West Coast Greyboy beats remain central to “Soul Mosaic” but are now enhanced by collaborations with folks like Sharon Jones, Bart Davenport (Honeycut), and Bing Ji Ling.

A decade ago “Freestylin’” became a surprise underground hit, it was a building block of the early acid jazz movement and still holds cult status today. Since then Greyboy has released the equally jazz-based instrumental “Land of the Lost” and the soundtrack and hip hop inspired “Mastered The Art”, which featured musicians and MCs in a prelude to the “Soul Mosaic” album.

Greyboy has recorded with AG (Showbiz & AG), and the Greyboy Allstars (whom he helped put together and produce). His music has been featured in movies like Get Shorty, Celtic Pride, The Kelly Slater Surf Pro video game, Budweiser commercials, and he was handpicked to provide a mix CD for DC shoes.

    I absolutely love Greyboy's stuff, I play it all the time in the library when I'm studying, and sometimes when I go out. His style is so versatile, there's a song for everyone

    Oh there's another one too, but I don't know how to explain it. It's about five and a half minutes long and doesn't have any vocals. It's a pretty basic and repetitive beat and at right after the one minute mark, there's some record scratching that comes up in the song a couple of times.

    Hey, I'm new to Greyboy and had a question. I got a song without tags by them, it's really chill and is all bass and marimba. The only words are "eeee" every once in a while. What song is this?

    Has anyone got lyrics to Genevieve? That song is such a bomb when I'm heading out. One more time, before I hit the road, say you love me, say you love me, sad to see you go...

    Are they from Cali? I know nothing about this band. 3 years ago I was in a coffee shop in Minneapolis, MN and they were playing greyboy on the stereo. I asked the owner who was playing and he made me a copy of the Mastered the Art. I was surprised that CDDB even had the album; I always figured they were some tiny local act.
