Best known for his ferocious “Trombone Flips,” producer Alexander Lewis has proven himself a fan favourite in the trap genre in little time. The bi-coastal multi-instrumentalist, took to studying Jazz Performance  and with the influence of New York City nightlife and a few other music collectives & producers he began taking on his own version of jazz-influenced electronic production, adapting, most notably, Trombone into hip-hop instrumentals.

Alexander Lewis​ has linked up with MadeinTYO for an explosive new track. With a feature from Harlem native, S’natra, “Wassup” kicks off with a catchy hook from MadeinTYO, with Lewis himself effortlessly diving into rapid-fire flow. In light of his new track, we decided to hang out with the LA-based producer for a day to talk music and other necessities, shot by our good friend @frankhavemercy. Listen below.

“My Grandma always had jazz playing in her house, so when I started the trombone at age 12  I naturally wanted to play jazz. I ended up going to college at Manhattan School of Music, where I met Ivan Jackson (of Brasstracks) and JNTHN STEIN. They were the first to encourage me to make music on Ableton and when I felt comfortable enough, I started submitting beats to Team Supreme’s weekly beat cyphers and that really amped up my producing chops. After that, 1-minute beat cyphers started turning into full tracks and the rest is history.”Alex racked up close to 10 million streams in 2017 alone…

“Wassup” gave me a way to show my versatility as a producer. It’s a pivot track of what to expect more of in the future. This track was super exciting for me, because I was able to bring together two completely different hip-hop artists with differing styles, while still complimenting each other. It turned out to be a ratchet musical gumbo of sorts that we all fell in love with.”
