B Hammer'd

B Hammer’d Bio:

B Hammer’d began his journey in high school as a bassist and songwriter¬†in his humble suburban town. His first foray into electronic music was a¬†simple mashup mix made for a radio contest for San Francisco’s LIve 105.

After this he turned to making downtempo music in the style of Boards of¬†Canada. Alone in his room he explored the depths of headnodic beats and¬†sprawling melodies content to create electronica which appealed to the¬†home head phone listener.¬†Fast forward a few years B Hammer’d found himself regularly attending¬†dubstep shows and began to see that the music he wanted to make was¬†meant not for headphones but for dance clubs. Quickly becoming¬†dissatisfied with the dubstep scene he began to branch out and seek out¬†more diverse realms of dance music from which to draw from. He now¬†specializes in remixes and mashups of todays hottest electronic artists as¬†well as running several dance nights in Portland. On top of that he is the¬†official DJ for the Portland Stags and Rose City Rollers.

As a performer Electronic hip hop, funky breakbeats, and future rnb are the¬†styles that drive him now. His sets always seek to pull together a range of¬†eclectic beats, rhythms and tempos all with a common theme. His¬†performances are built for those who really want to get down, those who¬†love to get low and those who love to let loose. B Hammer’d seeks to¬†stimulate both body and mind believing that music should make you want to¬†move but should also make you think.

And remember “The music is always better when you B Hammer’d”
