After much anticipation, my good friend, Fly Commons, has finally released his debut album Greyscale. The 12 track project features many prominent Bay Area artists, including Erk Tha Jerk, Jay Ant, Moe Green, G-Eazy, and Traxamillion. I also co-produced “That’s Life” by Nio Tha Gift and “WYDOAK” by Moe Green.

“A Monster” by Tré Adams featuring Mickey Shiloh

Oct 31, 2014 by Malek - 0 Comments

A couple months ago I worked with the talented singer Tré Adams. The song is called “A Monster” so we thought it was fitting to hold off on releasing it until Halloween. “A Monster” is about the aftermath of an intense and almost addictive relationship. No matter what the monster does, Tré always comes back for more. He is under her spell. She is like a disease; slowly infecting him until he loses all control.


Special thanks to Mickey ShilohBenjamin Michel for directing the video, Justine Tallariti for being an incredible monster, and Ashley Langston for her amazing hair and make-up.

Lawrence Beamen releases “Round and Round”

A few months ago I had the opportunity to work with America’s Got Talent finalist Lawrence Beamen on his latest single “Round and Round.” We spent a day at world famous Fantasy Studios laying down the vocals, mixing the record and shooting the music video all during a 12 hour studio session. I am honored to have been a part of the process and really happy with how the record came out. Check out the music video below.


After finishing “Round and Round,” Lawrence decided to bring me on to produce the rest of his next project. Keep an ear open for more music from Lawrence in the near future.
