Not many Hip Hop producers today are focused on creative identity; but in the midst of today's unbearable repetitious artists there stands to be a talented young music producer pushing for a change within Hip Hop's artists and producers. C-NoEviLbrings forth that change from the mind of one who is influenced by the likes of Quincy Jones, DJ Quik, Prince, Dr. Dre, Stevie Wonder, DJ Hi-Tek, Pete Rock, and George Clinton.
He's worked with fellow artist/producer V-Style to compose compositions and percussion pieces for Paris Hilton’s film “Pledge This!” and has also produced songs for artists such as Element Spitflames, Sowf Wes, and Ms. Toi. Provided that the “Mr. Producer” is only 24 years of age, he sure has much more than what it takes to produce music to it's best quality and take artists to their highest potential.
Since the tender age of 11, the young “rhythmic expressionist” has been making beats with little or no equipment. From banging on his bedroom door with his pen, knuckle, and fist to make music, to beating on his class room desks and almost being suspended, to even beat boxing on his mother’s voice recorder, the young producer was sure to express his musical talent. He soon realized that he also had a knack for writing songs and began putting together his own rap and r & b journal. He finally attained his first beat machine at age 16 from working as an A&R intern at Atlantic Records, and from day one committed himself to making beats every single day, no matter what!
“C-NoEviL is the definition of what a producer is and should be! Not only does he make beats and play instruments, but he really takes pride in the overall process of putting together records and full albums, whether he produced the song or not! He’s what I’d like to call a savior!” – Element Spitflames.
Currently, C-NoEviL is finishing the final stages of his up and coming project, "Xclusive Remixes" which will be available for download and also producing "The Element of Surprise" mixtape with Element Spitflames.
With two remix projects dropping next month including C-NoEviL presents...American Gangster (the remixes), plus two more albums being released this summer, 2008 is shaping up to be an incredible year for C-NoEviL. Look out for Mr. Producer!!!
