I want to be like Jeremy Ellis when I grow up. You dont EVEN understand right now.

Very few people outright inspire me to go out, buy equipment I know nothing about, and play around with making beats on Maschines that I wouldn’t even understand how to use. Adding himself to that small list of people who make me want to be a better musician/person is Detroit born and 808 raised Jeremy Ellis, one of the most suprisingly illest beatmakers to pop up lately. Not only are his skills on the MPC incredible, he also does amazing things on a piano system I have yet to place a name to (but DJ Jedi showed me the other week at Turntable Lab LA and you can see below in his Dilla tribute) and gives you lessons on how to become fairly awesome at it yourself.

If you dont believe me, you can watch him do his thing below.


…and I can’t believe someone got my very first introduction to his skills on tape. An AMAZING Dilla tribute he did in Chinatown a few months back. Glorious. Thanks, guy who got this on tape. You’re amazing.

From there, his website is here, his twitter is here, and let this dude get back into Los Angeles. I’m taking the camera. It will be glorious.
You watch and try to learn something new.

Yemi Akinyemi is a pretty great guy.
Not only did he take the time to reach out and say hello after I posted about his choreography in Kanye West’s “Runaway,” He also left me with a wealth of resources and content that I’d love to share with you guys.
Hopefully, this will be the start of a lot of awesomeness.

Let’s start the awesome with Yemi and his Principal Dancers doing the Original Choreography for Kanye’s “Runaway” video. Still very similar, you can see that there are some subtle differences throughout the performance. And stillĀ  Breathtaking. I love finding things like this so much. It’s even better when its sent to you. It’s like winning twice.

If the YouTube Nazis don’t let it embed, just go watch it on the site.
Make sure you catch up with Yemi on his Website and also on his Facebook Page.
Have fun.
