DiViNCi Ableton Live Workshop 6/7/15
As a founding member & Producer of Orlando-based Hip Hop group, Solillaquists of Sound, DiViNCi first gained notoriety by using multiple MPCs (drum machines) in ways the world had never seen before. The virtuosity in his frenetic performances & popular YouTube clips set inspiring precedents for the now popular “Controllerism” scene. DiViNCi is revered by music fans, aspiring electronic performers & veteran musicians alike. His work, both on & off the stage, caught the attention of GRAMMY Award-winning icon Ms. Lauryn Hill, who tapped DiViNCi to join her band & studio team.
In addition to his work with Ms. Hill and SoS, his versatility as a producer and performer have allowed him to collaborate seamlessly with artists across the musical spectrum. Sage Frances, EL-P, Kool Keith, MF Doom, Doug Wimbish (Living Colour), Victor Wooten, Darryl Jennifer (Bad Brains), Michael Franti & Spearhead and Zap Mama are a few of the artists with whom DiViNCi has worked.
As a public speaker, DiViNCi enjoys sharing his passion for creativity and process with those looking to develop not only their craft, but their careers as well. His constant drive for innovation has led him to work closely with various companies in the development of their most popular products. Some of his most notable contributions have come from his work with Akai Professional in helping to develop the MPC Renaissance, Studio & MPC5000. In addition, DiViNCi's recent adoption of Ableton products has garnered the attention of the corporation and led to multiple Ableton workshops & panel discussions.
While currently at work on various musical projects, including a new solo album, DiViNCi continues to teach, tour, and work on music with both Solillaquists of Sound and Ms. Lauryn Hill. The newest Solillaquists of Sound double album, 'The 4th Wall', is available now.
