Brandan Toledo – Production
More than ever, versatility pays. As the lines between musical styles continue to disappear, people are demanding more from the music industry. Today a hit needs to have a little of everything in it, and in turn, hit makers need to be capable of doing a little of everything. Versatility is one of the many characteristics that makes up production mentor, Brandon Toldeo.
With his production company, Miami Beat wave, his credits and collaborations include SLIGHT MODIFICATION and #B2B, featuring artists such as Dead Prez, N.O.R.E., ¡Mayday!, Skyzoo, Layne Harper, Ras Kass, Locos por Juana and Quest. He’s also produced a tune for Pitbull, Flo Rida, Brisco, Gunplay, on Dj Efn’s “Diggin In The Tapes”, along with tracks such as “Church Road” Ft. Pos of De La Soul on Wrekonize album “The War Within” and “My Own Parade” on the recently released ¡MURSDAY! album, both achieving placement in the Top 200 on The American Billboard Charts.
In addition to producing, Brandon has also recorded and mixed for artists such as Dangerflow (Miami Heat’s Band), Suenalo, Dead Prez & Dj Drama “Gangsta Grillz”, as well as hip hop artists Talib Kweli and ArtOfficial. He’s also ventured into the video game and television market, contributing their trademark sound to Hudson Entertainment/Gaijinworks’, Nintendo DS, Title Miami Law, and Solefly/Jordan shoe commercial. 305 Magazine/The305.com awarded his company “Producers of the Year”, and you can find their “Neighbors” Mixtape on Pepsi.com
Brandon’s inspiration comes from yesteryear’s classic jewels and obscure alike, the cream of today’s crop, and he infuses it all into his interpretation of music’s future.
