Tuned in to music from an early age, besatree has tastes spanning the board. Raised and presently residing in Southern California, in his early teens, a fall into the hardcore/crust/thrash scene soon became a headfirst dive that would become a love for music and sounds. Coming up in this area taught him the value of DIY music making and promotions, causing him to develop a love for all aspects of the musical process from the actual writing and performing of the songs to designing his own album artwork and flyers. Exposure to hip hop in his early 20?s became a love for the art form in the next few years, resulting in his beginning to make rough beats and loops. This lead to numerous electronic and cybergrind projects, as well as experimenting with acoustic and instrumental endeavors. In his mid 20?s, he began seriously listening to hip hop and began to dedicate himself to making real efforts in the genre around 2006. With a handful of releases, both printed and online, he has collaborated with various others, including work with @k_serious (both musically and through video work), Mitchell Lopez and Libby Freeman with photos, Annette “Netters” Villa in artwork aspects, and many more. Currently working on various projects, he finds himself hungry for more at a ravenous rate. Always teaming up with friends, he is constantly on the lookout for like-minded individuals with which to collaborate and perform. Constantly creating new beats with samples ranging from The Knife, CCR, As the Sun Sets, Tegan and Sara, to Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong. He can also be found scanning the web for samples of songs and sounds to use to create interesting, heartfelt tunes to record powerful lyrics over. You can find him performing solo and collaborative shows as well as with the Cloudmakers throughout Southern California. He can be contacted and listened to at besatree.com.
