[VIDEO] Sweet Simplicities – RUXSTEEZ (Ryan Leslie x Talenthouse video contest submission)

This video I’m posting is a beat making video I did for the Ryan Leslie x Talenthouse video contest. You have 5 min to showcase yourself making an instrumental or a full song. Big shout out to my hard grindin’ cuzzo Marco Bercasio for shooting and directing the video. He took a simple beat making video and turned it into an art piece, adding a lot of direction and feeling to it. I’m definitely blessed with a strong circle of supporting individuals. Enjoy the video! PLEASE VOTE @ http://www.talenthouse.com

Battle of the Synths. Roland Fantom G6 vs. Yamaha Motif XS6

All of which are hiphop/rnb/soul bands out here in the Bay Area. He was rockin’ the Motif and made me really wanna get my keyboard bars up. I have a background in piano and have been slowly getting back into it. So for my birthday, I have the option of getting a keyboard/synth. Its a toss up between the Fantom and the Motif. We shall see….
