Music is lyf and bae.  Come find out about my original tunes, collaborations and music reviews!

I create music and Hexspa is my primary outlet.  Hexspa combines Rock and Electronic with an emphasis on great writing.  Interestingly, the name Hexspa is a combination of my Army unit’s battalion motto and the Sigma Six name.  Taken together, it means “struggle to improve”.

I don’t always fly solo, though.  Occasionally, I’ll link up with other artists and produce a collaborative project.  One such example is called “Drop Down” which I made with Joel Adams.  I also remixed deadmau5′ “Some Chords” for a Beatport Play contest.

Sometimes, I won’t have any new tracks to share.  It’s at this times that I might post a song review or reaction.  So many artists are putting out work these days.  Since I don’t have time to analyze it all, sometimes I’ll just express my feelings about it and where it might sit in the pantheon of sonic creations.

Honey Diamond

Honey Diamond

Aww I wrote a love song called “Honey Diamond” I like the lyrics most.  More piano than usual too.  The form is based off of Type O Negative’s take on “Cinnamon Girl”. This is my last Eight Bar Embryo production before releasing the Uncomfortable EP Pt. 2 next month in October. In the meantime I’ll be studying how to best release and promote a project and launching my newsletter: The

Dream High

Dream High

Spark it up So this one’s about dreams and stuff. I don’t smoke weed all that much anymore but, you know, once a stoner… As you might have read, these Eight Bar Embryos (8BE) are me trying to improve my skills.  I want to release one a week but it’s tough.  In reality this one took three weeks to finish from first starting. It’s based on Soma Sonic’s “Crazy

Careless

Careless

Apparently ijdgaf! Songs are fun because you get to expose different shades of meaning. This is about being all independent, not caring, then falling in love. But then, not caring, I sent some dim witted shit during the courting process (as we are wont to do) and screwed it up due to carelessness. See how that works? I can’t really recommend any dating products butt if you’re interested in

Soft Dick

Soft Dick

Great title: “Soft Dick”. Skrillex said to do what puts a smile on your face.  When I thought of this name I lol’d. It’s got an angle to it, besides the novelty, which you songwriting people might enjoy. Patreon is launched!  Please go over there and consider patron-ing me a dollar or whatever so I can drink coffee.  Also, check out the eight bar embryo tracks for more great

Green Monkey

Green Monkey

Another Color/Animal friggin title. I read an article about music producers.  It was actually probably about Rick Rubin.   It said that he’d get “has-beens” with “writer’s block” (which I put in quotes because people like Neil Strauss say it doesn’t exist – and I agree) to just write two words. Two words. I say again, TWO WORDS, that inspire them – and have that in by next week.

Bubbles

Bubbles

Got Reggae? Had a conversation about when I took a shower on the beach by Santa Monica pier wearing only bubbles. Someone else had a similar experience wearing only sun. Hence the lyrics. Not to whine, it’s hard to make a track every week.  I’m not just making tracks but also transcribing a song and writing one.  That’s three projects.  What I’m thinking to do is, instead of making

Throwin Out The World

Throwin Out The World

Last song. This the last song before I move out of my apartment. This one takes some Legend of Zelda influences and mixes them with “Teenager” from Deftones. I probably won’t have anything up for quite some time. Look for me in about three months – unless I really get on it. Sub on yt to stay updated. Thanks, -m

Super Sorry Bro

Super Sorry Bro

I tried. Fuckin iMovie. Doesn’t matter tho since I did the Warren Buffett 25/5 thing and realized that making music videos ain’t for me. This is probably the first or second most derivative track I’ve done – not gonna lie. But, you got to learn somehow. Made it in one week.  Almost broke Ableton.  Need to resample. Let me know what you think, hit me up over on Patreon

Spase-X

Spase-X

Prepare for liftoff. Here’s a song I did. I’m currently producing a track, writing a song and transcribing a cover each week. They say it’s all about completing a large body of work. Thanks to the winter and delicious beer I’ve got the large body down currently.  Time to do work. Check it out, let me know if you like it and please consider supporting Hexspa on Patreon. Thanks!
