Thoughtsarizen aka Thoughtsone



After a year hiatus I am back!


So a quick update, I haven't been able to really work on music or anything from Dec 2012 until fairly recently due to major medical condition. I know you all care about me, so I decided to let you know why there have been so few updates. That said, with all that now in the rear view we can move into 2014 with great new projects!

I have never had so much respect for life as I do now, and I have never been so aware of how short life is until this year. So expect lots of new content this year.


My latest release, a collab record between LDonthecut (producer and DJ for Sublime with Rome), is available on itunes, or if you are on my mailing list I will likely get you a preview for free and if you like it please support it.If you do not want to wait you can go ahead and get it off itunes here:
