Exclusive Beat and Soundtrack Production
BEATS Produced by Aversive
Why work with me as a producer? I have knowledge, experience, and a true passion and ear for music. I've been dedicated to my gift of producing music since 2006, starting off with a MPC-2000xl as my first music production station and sampler, later becoming an adept at Ableton Live. I've been a multi-instrumentalist musician since 2004, studied music rudiments as a teen and later studied Contemporary Music at Selkirk College from 2010 to 2012. In 2013 I got my certificate with honors in Music Production and Audio Engineering from Harbourside Institute of Technology (Now SAE Institute). I have taught music production workshops in Canada and in the United States, and have been a signed producer releasing music with independent record labels since 2013, including MalLabel Music (USA), Black Tuna Recordings (CAN), The Outtallectual Collective (UK), Visionary Shamanic Records (UK), and The Glitch Shop (UK), and now run my own label Unknowable Sound Recordings. I've worked with talented Canadian rappers and vocalists including Infoe, Bvitae, MC Alox, and Miss Fudge (scroll to bottom for examples).
I hope to work with artists who truly care about their craft and their message, as I want to release music that can bring knowledge, awareness, and solutions to the issues we all face as people living (often struggling) within the consensus "reality" of society. I want to work with artists who care about the influence their music has on people's minds and emotions, as music has the power to uplift but also keep us in ignorance. I want to work with artists who use music to express genuine truth and help others find it within themselves, going beyond the superficial concepts often relentlessly pushed in music in the mainstream. I want to release music that can help people break free from their mind-prisons, and think beyond the cultural programing of society that keeps us caught in illusions, searching endlessly like hungry ghosts, never finding the truth and reality that's within us, beyond what we've been programmed to believe. I believe music has the power to lift veils and expand awareness if used in the right way. If you feel like this resonates with you, keep scrolling!
Some music genres I enjoy producing (but am not limited to) include conscious hiphop, triphop, reggae, dub, drum & bass, jungle, breakbeat, downtempo, ambient, and world influenced music.
A few of the tools and musical instruments in my studio include Ableton Live, Protools, Native Instruments Komplete VSTs, Waves Audio VSTs, Korg Radias synthesizer, Focal Alpha 80 studio monitors, Pioneer PLX1000 turn tables, acoustic guitar, tenor saxophone, violin, and a collection of ethnic musical instruments and percussion. I can play live instruments and scratch records on your beat at no extra charge.
Custom Beat Packages
Buying a Custom Beat Package includes a custom beat produced especially for your song or rap, your vocals or instruments mixed down, and the beat mastered and ready for release. Mixing and Mastering services are provided by Clear Concept Audio. If you have an idea for a project or custom beat you'd like produced, please apply by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with your concept.
Custom Beat Packages are sold with either an exclusive license or non-exclusive license for the purchaser. Beats with exclusive licenses can only be sold once and give the purchaser rights to use, record, release, and publish the beat, as well as use in live performances. Beats with non-exclusive licenses give the artists rights to the beat like above, but can be sold by Aversive to other artists unlimited times. Aversive must be fully credited for the production of the beat when it is released or promoted in any way.
If you already have a high quality professional mixing or mastering engineer and don't need mixing / mastering services, beats can also be purchased "as is" or as track-out, without extra services, with either exclusive or non-exclusive rights.

Examples of previous collaborations with
vocalists and rappers:
Here are some examples of past projects I've done featuring vocalists and rappers.
The Neptune Project
‘The Neptune Project’ is in essence, a breath of absolute fresh air. Orchestral horns, chilled out snares and soothing, feminine vocals weave through a sultry and mature lounge of modern kaleidoscopic jazz. The EP is decidedly smooth and extremely well produced, a meeting of time and place. How can a sound establish itself at once at the absolute forefront of the west coast’s future scene and in smokey east coast venues of 1990’s Massive Attack mayhem? Aversive and Bvitae have managed to break through to quantum experimental levels that feel familiar and yet so incredibly new.
Goodbye bro-step, later big-room bass; there’s a new movement of gentle, refined electronica arriving and Aversive and Bvitae are sensuously leading the revolution.
The Neptune Project (Part Two)
In The Neptune Project (Part Two) Aversive brings to light 3 more top quality tracks featuring up and coming Calgary vocalist Bvitae. This time smooth and melodic liquid drum & bass.
Produced, recorded, and mastered by Aversive
