Bizarre Ride on Thavius Beck

I did some light digging on LA Weekly’s music blog. Thavius Beck’s music has been resurfacing with a new album called “The Most Beautiful Ugly.” I really love music that is different and brings something new yet familiar. If you’re in the mood for a few new flavor samples, click below to let Mush Records take your ears and eyes on a musical adventure:

Rihanna, Katy Perry, Diplo…Producing indie to Top 40 hits

Wow! Step into the versatile musical works of 24 year old hit producer and songwriter Benny Blanco. You have most likely been singing along to his songs from indie to Top 40 pop through Katy Perry, Rihanna, Keshia, Whiz Khalifa and other international mega music stars. Take a peak into his life as he works with your favorite artists and producers. Here’s the pic and a nice interview write up in the Huffington Post:

“Hitmaker” — a term that’s often thrown around loosely — seems like the right label for Benny Blanco. The multi-platinum songwriter and producer’s resume boasts a staggering 13 No. 1 singles, a tally even more impressive given that the man behind “California Gurls,” “Teenage Dream,” “Dynamite,” “Tik Tok” and “Moves Like Jagger” is 24 years young.

And Blanco’s star is about to get bigger: As a co-producer on Rihanna’s lead single “Diamonds” (off the soon-to-be-released album, “Unapologetic”) and Ke$ha’s “Die Young,” he currently has two songs in the top ten on Billboard’s singles chart.”
