As a multi-instrumentalist, producer, emcee & music educator, THAVIUS BECK is a man whose life revolves around audio and technology. With a focus on bass heavy rhythms, dark emotional melodies and twisted sample manipulation, Thavius has not only released numerous solo albums (under his own name, plus previous moniker Adlib), but he's also collaborated with and remixed luminaries Saul Williams, Nine Inch Nails, The Mars Volta, Skylar Grey and Nas, to name a few.

A native of Minneapolis, THAVIUS BECK moved to Los Angeles at age 16 and quickly found a crew of like-minded beat makers & rappers who formed the underground hip-hop collective known as Global Phlowtations. As a main pillar of the nine man + one woman crew, he was responsible for producing, rhyming on and recording many of the songs that were released across three classic self-released GPAC albums in the late 90's. Thavius released solo projects through various labels over his 20-year stay in LA, collaborated with fellow producer/emcee Subtitle (aka Giovanni Marks) to create the group "Labwaste", and began touring extensively with Saul Williams as his 'one-man band', outfitted with an arsenal of state-of-the-art electronic gadgetry.

Eventually his love of music and technology lead to Ableton Live, where Thavius became a certified trainer of in 2009. He quickly became a world-renowned advocate for Ableton Live education, and took a brief hiatus from releasing albums to run electronic music workshops and explore teaching. In 2016, he left the cozy confines of Los Angeles and relocated to Brooklyn, NY. Reinvigorated by the city, plus inspired by frequent European tours with Saul, both offered Thavius meditative hours spent in solitary at hotels, airports & on trains writing new material.

The result is an impassioned new self-produced project "TECHNOL O.G." [HNR74], that finds Thavius expressing his true self as an artist & man. His much-anticipated twelve song album is a record full of raw & unfiltered truth revealed through his rhythmic vocal reflections and electronic production perfection. Released worldwide on Monday September 18th, 2017 on one-of-a-kind kaleidoscopic 12" colored vinyl, housed in a variety of hand-screenprinted and collectible outer jackets featuring striking artwork by Jon Ryan.

*Downloads also include the stunning Mono/Poly remix of lead track "Spectacular Vernacular".
