A Long Island/Brooklyn native, J57 brings styles upon styles to his unique brand of production.  He infuses his beats with hiphop, pop, soul, glitch, and countless other influences with a masterful ear and unerring drive. Currently mentored by the legendary DJ Premier, J57 is one of the most sought-after beat-smiths in indie hip hop, worldwide.  He met his group, Brown Bag AllStars, while he was moonlighting at the hiphop mecca, Fat Beats Records, where he also linked up with Stones Throw Records artist/frequent collaborator, Homeboy Sandman.  While he is quickly accumulating renown in the indie hip hop realm, he is also versatile enough to put it down heavy on the instrumental music tip. Check out his full length release Digital Society and his newer EP Landmines and Nuclear Wintour on Balanced Records.
