Keep Rising :: Exploded Drawing Celebrates 7 Years In Style


After 7 years of hard work and endless dedication, the Exploded Drawing family is reaping the recognition they rightfully deserve.  2017 has found the crew expanding into the festival circuit, playing the legendary Low End Theory in Los Angeles, bringing the very same Low End Theory to Austin, receiving recognition in the Austin Chronicle and Texas Monthly within weeks of one another, and releasing vinyl and cassettes via the legendary Fat Beats distribution to commemorate 7 years.  Exploded Drawing: “7 Years” Compilation features all of the producers you’ve come to know and love from the crew, an introduction featuring KUTX‘s Art Levy, and it’s all come together on a beautiful full-color gatefold (designed by Michael Scheel) with color vinyl pressings in 2 options.  I am so happy for the crew, and forever honored to be among its ranks.  Here’s to countless more years of continued fun and hopeful success.


Gilded Alliance Is Growning :: Kinder Joins The Ranks

The one and only, extraordinary beatsmith known as Kinder has joined Lo Phi and Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice in the exclusive ranks of the Gilded Alliance.  The brainchild of Glory Gold & Glitter creator Michael Scheel, the series is a chance for each producer to create a unique project, and for a piece of artwork to be created specifically for the project.  Volume 3 is definitely keeping the quality bar high both visually and musically… check it out for yourselves:


Glory Gold & Glitter Represent :: Gilded Alliance Vol. 2

I’m going to get personal here… words cannot express how honored I am to have been chosen as volume 2 of the Gilded Alliance series.  My main man and fellow producer Lo Phi set things beautifully with volume 1, so the bar was set high.  With a few collective creative heads getting together, however, volume 2 has turned out to be both visually and sonically strong.

Here’s a word about Gilded Alliance from Glory Gold & Glitter:

“Glory Gold & Glitter presents you with a brand new collaborative series called Gilded Alliance. Incredible producers make a mix for the website. Then, I make a hand-screenprinted poster influenced by the mix. When you order a poster, I’ll hook you up with a download so you can bang the music any time. Everybody wins.”

Enough with the talking… here’s the AMAZING print:

And, here’s the mix… all (or mostly) Texas producers, put together by yours truly…
