The Minneapolis producer presents his debut solo instrumental album after 20+ years of honing his craft through his hip-hop group Big Quarters, mentoring young artists in the Twin Cities, developing into a respected engineer himself, while still producing behind the scenes (I Self Devine, Lady Midnight, 26 Bats!, Homeboy Sandman, Mankwe Ndosi, Javier Santiago, Kara Walker, Resmaa Menakem, & The Minneapolis Institute of Art).
In 2016, he started #Beatstory – a weekly video series where he made something new on the spot, and broke his process down, clip by clip on social media. This was a creative awakening, and allowed Zach to stockpile music, reach new people, and imagine how it might all come together into an album one day. 5 years later – it finally has.
