I'm Erik Anderson and I enjoy creating Lofi HipHop tracks with a focus on delicate textures and intimate sounds. I also enjoy recreating the 90's HipHop style of beats as that is what got into making hiphop in the first place.
Then when I want to explore my more melodic and emotional side, I turn to composing piano and strings cues, and ambient underscores.
I started on my musical path at age 9 with basic piano lessons, which I continued for 2 years. I later picked up the bass when I was 14 and played with a few bands. A few years later I got an Akai S2000 sampler and a drum machine and started making hip hop tracks.
In the winter of '98 I started my enrollment in Berklee College of Music in Boston, which involved ear training, theory, harmony, traditional harmony, bass proficiency, composition, synthesis, production and engineering.
Graduated in 2002 with honors, received my bachelors degree in Music Production and Engineering. I then came back to New Jersey and started up my first studio with a few friends and musicians.
During my time there I recorded many local bands and a few professional releases for XOXO Records. In 2006 I started my own studio, as sole owner/engineer/producer, which I helped construct and design.
I then teamed up with another engineer and a few studio musicians in 2009 and helped construct our newest Brickwindow studio. Sadly in 2020 we had to close our doors, but it was then that I joined Taxi and started focusing on composing and writing for TV/Film.
