Frisbie is so very proud to have signed Chief Xcel for representation in Commercials, Film and TV. Xcel is the genius beatmaker/producer half of the illustrious duo, Blackalicious, with Gift Of Gab. He is also one of the founders and owners of Quannum Records (DJ Shadow, General Elektriks, Latyrx, Lyrics Born, Pigeon John and more). His classic beats are legendary in the hip hop world.
While Xcel is widely known for his master production skills, he is fast becoming a go to composer for scoring for brands like Apple, New Balance, Adidas, Target and more. His fresh insights and creativity when scoring to picture are inspiring to hear.
Xcel is also ready to drop 3 new records in 2013: the highly anticipated Blackalicious LP, Q1; Burning House and Loudspeaker. Burning House is a bombastic sonic summit created by Chief Xcel and keyboard wiz Herve Salters (aka General Elektriks). Created in San Francisco, Paris, and Berlin, Burning House's first album is a radical and unprecedented collage of relentless hip hop, raw funk, contagious club and brash jazz that is ready for the clubs and prime time. Loudspeaker is a match made in music heaven with Xcel and Grammy nominated singer, Ledisi.
