new EP out today! ‘we’re all busy but good (vol1:fall)’



Really excited to release this today — it’s been awhile since I’ve done a proper release, and here it is, vol1. These songs remind me of fall, with the summer winding down, days getting colder and people starting their fireplaces up again, and the general mood starting to feel a little darker. maybe you won’t get that same thing from the EP, but hopefully you enjoy it all the same.

Besides this release, I’m really looking forward to what’s yet to come: this EP is the start of a series of (loosely) seasonally-themed EPs. Additionally, after/before/during those, I have a full artist v artist album coming out that I’m pretty excited to put out into the world and hear what you think. Stay tuned on Facebook / Twitter / SoundCloud / messenger pigeon to get updates, and if you like the music, every tweet, like, and kind word goes a long way.

Thanks so much for checking it out and giving it a shot — be in touch if you like on twitter.

new wait what single: move that lucille (future, pusha t & pharrell vs nicholas cheung) + news



“it’s been a long time, I shouldn’t have left you // without a dope beat to step to”


It’s been a little bit since I’ve released new music around here, but that’s about to change. I’ve been listening, writing, designing, rehearsing, staying up too late and sleeping on couches — all that great stuff. Poking my head up now with a new single today, new EP coming 10.1.14 (all free/pay-what-you-want), and that’s just the start — I’ve been working on a lot of new music and am really psyched about all that’s in store.

For people in SF, we’ve got a pair of shows coming up — both are on boats, and first up is the live mashup show with my friend shane mac on 10.11, followed by the tilt haunted river boat party with bixel boys on halloween — that one’s a full band show that we sold out of all 1500 tickets in a few days.

More shows to be announced, more music to be released, and a lot more fun to be had — stay tuned on Facebook (that’s probably best — everyone’s on it, less noise, all updates go there), Soundcloud, Twitter and here if you’re not already. Really psyched for everything yet to come!

    wait what: my top 10 of 2013

    2013 was an awesome year, and especially for music. For the last 9 years, I’ve ranked my top 10 albums at the end of the year to both remember how I thought about music at the time and also to augment my memories of that year with the soundtrack behind them.

    I wrote a little piece on Medium and created a playlist of my choice tracks from each. Check it out, and let me know what your favorites were this year in the comments. Here’s to a 2014 that’s even better.

    wait what: my top 10 of 2012

    here we are, at the end of a great year. this year was especially awesome: graduated from business school, moved up to sf, produced a track a week for 6 months, released a new album, headlined a bunch of sold out shows, backpacked around europe, jumped off cliffs, drove from milan to barcelona, climbed half dome in the middle of the night, launched a company, and had a ton of fun throughout. here’s my favorite music from the year that was 2012:
