A Discography; Brief & Modern

The first full-length album is entitled Beautiful Prison. Recorded single-handedly in the time before 6-year olds made Grammy-sounding records with jacked up computers, it has some rawness to it (in a rough way - not in a "this is a good quote for the Rolling Stone interview when they ask you feel about this album" kind of way). Beautiful Prison was the first Scinx album released under the Herocaine Records portfolio and was mixed with great skill by Mike Sawitzke (Eels, Remy Zero) in Los Angeles, CA, and mastered by Brad Blackwood (Calexico, Maroon 5, Black Eyed Peas) in Memphis, TN.

The Grand EP was mixed and produced by Floyd 'the Barber' Peppers (with Mike Sawitzke masterfully mixing 'Alls I Really Want') and mastered by Justin Weis of Trakworx Mastering (Papa Roach, The Tubes, Lotus Rush). This album evaporates off some of the more rock elements from Beautiful Prison and distills a little more hiphop into the mix. Special features by Smallville and Doc Strange, The Grand EP is definitely an advancement forward. A limited number of hard copies of The Grand EP were pressed and quickly sold out. It is still available digitally via iTunes, cdbaby.com and Amazon

The last official release directly related to Scinx was a collaboration project entitled "Ampersand" under the name "The Mendocrats". This full length album is available at no-charge at http://mendocrats.com/. This project saw the combination of Scinx with a gifted and talented hiphop emcee and producer who disappeared from society for the greater good.

The next EP entitled The Secret EP may, or may not, be released next.

What Kind of Music Does Scinx Recommend?

Scinx recommends the following music acts for no other reason than they are enjoyable and different:

Mellowdrone
Los Angeles outfit with an abundant amount of sonic wonder and relaxi-taxi vibe.

Pinback
San Diego operators. Don't know how to describe - just great stuff.

Galt MacDermot
An ingenious composer with a jazz/funk hybrid thing going on. Check out Woman is Sweeter.

Arizona the Band
Chill music w/ an edge. Welcome Back Dear Children comes recommended. Group disbanded.

Daniel Merriweather
His self-titled album is produced by Ronson and has backing from the Dap-Kings. Pretty great pop album.
