Takeaway: If you want to loose your poop, start jamming out to DeafMind.


In the mood to dance?

Then you definitely have to check these two gentlemen out:

It’s 4AM and I’ve been bouncing around to their tracks for the past hour (and probably waking up my neighbors in the process).

Kind suggestion: BUMP IT !

You’ll get what I mean, then. (I mean, if you’re gonna go big, why not go huge?)

Mr. Austin Trafficante (Half Deaf) started music at an early age. A few years ago he teamed up with Art Dubie (My Mind) a very smiley and easy going Russian-raised DJ. These two guys love what they do, and it shows.

I got to witness the transformation of their music from inception to their current success. Over the course of a few years, they’ve earned the right to play stadium-sized electric festivals. They’re winning awards, and rocking local gigs real legit like. These two are straight up professionals.

They would agree with me, as I believe most of their success stems from their constant need to improve. In a very honest moment, Austin revealed that they’ve been humbled by kids playing at the same concert they crush – talent is real.

Not to say these two aren’t talented. Just listen to their production values. They create everything from the bottom up – from recording to producing to mixing and mastering. They are skilled generalists in their craft. True developers.

What I mean to emphasize is: they are always striving to be better. And there’s a noticeable change in the way they conduct themselves, and it’s more than obvious in their music.


Don’t trust me? Then you’re just a hater, and haters gonna hate hate hate hate hate…
