HazMat’s talkboxing abilities have already become a You-Tube sensation with more than 1,000,000 views as well as positive reviews from fans all over the world. This led to talkbox features with UK artist the Brooke’s Brothers on their hit “Loveline” and Soul Clap’s song and music video “Synthesizer Girlfriend”. HazMat has worked with notable artists such as Kenny Dixon, Scott Grooves (Overdubs), and good friend Delano Smith. Other artists include Bilal, Mr. Porter from D12, Mary J Blige and The Game. He toured with Amp Fiddler, The Four Tops, The Spinners and Charlie Wilson of the Gap Band.
HazMat performed at many major music festivals including Movement, Electric Forest, Charivari and Tec-Troit. He also joined Soul Clap as a featured artist to deliver what audiences consider one of the best performances at Movement 2017. His current live act “Deep Sequence” includes performances at Output, Bushwick AV, TBA, the Good Room, Eightieth Street Lounge, Flash, TV-Lounge, the Marble Bar, the Works, and the Electric Pickle.
Fans are raving over HazMat’s recent vinyl releases “People of Earth 007” with Michael Scott and “Infinite Silence” with Third Ear Recordings which brings along with it a new perspective of how we use sound and rhythm to convey this thing we call music.
