BioTossed asunder from the ice cold heart of Minneapolis, a young man with an old beard stepped off of a greyhound onto Los Angeles soil. This was the beginning of the middle for Thavius Beck, a saxophonist/bassist with a sampler, who later morphed into the beatmaking behemoth that sits before your monitor. 10 years, 2 groups, and 10 solo records later (not to mention group releases from Global Phlowtations and Labwaste, as well as production for Saul Williams, Busdriver, Subtitle, a couple film scores, a Miller beer commercial, a mysterious remix with Nas, and music placement in the Suicide Girls DVD), he's still not rich. But his passport has alot of stamps, and he can say from experience that Oslo is amazing in August. Current projects include: 'THRU' released on Mush Records, the official release of 'International Beats' on Net31 Records (24 tracks and over 70 minutes of depraved madness), working with Trent Reznor and CX Kidtronik on production for Saul Williams new album, as well as other esoteric musical endeavors.
