We Did:ProductionPost

About: We worked closely with director David McDonald to produce Matt Brevner’s “Dark Side of the Moon” from his third solo album, The Bushido Project: a raw mix of the warriors code and sample-based hip hop. Funded in association with Telus and Public Records.

Turning a tiny studio and some office chairs into some outer space verses. Now that's Bold.
