PRODUCER PROFILE is a platform in where we interview music creators, i.e. producers/beatmakers, both locally and globally, and showcase their musical works. The goal of PRODUCER PROFILE is to explore and reveal how communities of grassroots music creators are crossing borders, both in sound and geographic location. Their music is innovative and visionary – their music is powerful, brilliant, and unapologetic – and their music is part of a fast growing worldwide community that is changing the way we listen and share music.
STERYO’s Producer Profile series #4 features Arizona’s brightest and finest beat-maker/sound collector/button pusher, B 3 N B i. Getting his worldwide start with The Jazz Jousters, Fly By Night Collective, and Astral Basement, B 3 N B i exponentially pushed the boundaries of sound across borders. Having been featured in majority of Jazz Jousters releases, he crafted solo musical works with You, Youself, v_01 – Simply, and v_02 – Lemmon, all of which delivered innovative and exceptional tracks.
