The ROB Runner

This is The ROB Runner.  I named him the ROB runner after seeing him run up and down the sand dunes in Sutro Heights Park around the Richmond Ocean Beach neighborhood of San Francisco.  This guy is AWESOME! He is also featured on blog heading picture.

Yeh, He’s a pretty cool kid. That’s why I chose to work with him. See…..he’s a rapper, and i’m a producer. Is it starting to make sense?

We put out a four song EP called, “The Justus Bends EP 1.” Released in Jan 2009.  It’s actually eight songs. I chose to include the instrumentals. INSTRUMENTALS FOR ALL YOU RAPPERS AND MC’S.  Fried Man instrumental beats ! ! !

While attending PYRAMIND, we had an awesome song writing class with this dude named Anthony. Basically he always gave us some structure. Use a specific scale, write a blues song, etc……  One class, he told us to rip off something that we like.  Well, I ripped off a tune I heard one night at Surya Dub

Surya Dub. San Francisco Dubstep
