Producer and bassist Headnodic is a musical time-traveler. His exploration into the furthest reaches of rhythm and melody, from golden era rap to 70's fusion jazz, has inspired an original and profound voice in hip-hop. Whether he's sampling, chopping, and re-constructing breaks, or fluently performing on any number of vintage instruments, the aesthetic of a well seasoned crate-digger is apparent. He has collaborated with some of the most influential talents in hip-hip including, MF Doom, Jr. Gong Damian Marley, Brother Ali, Mr. Lif, Lyrics Born, Ladybug Mecca, DJ Shadow, Tash, People Under The Stairs, Oh No, Chali 2na, Zion I, The Grouch, Casual, Mystic, Sadat X, and Del the Funky Homosapien. Trained as a bass player at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, Headnodic began to develop his signature style which is inspired as much by session legend Carol Kaye as it is by the stuttered and chopped loops of DJ Premier. It was there that he met the members of what would later become the hip-hop band, Crown City Rockers, (originally called Mission ). He has now furnished the low end for Crown City Rockers for over a decade.

Then, in 2008, Headnodic joined forces with Gift of Gab (Blackalicious) and Lateef the Truth Speaker (Latyrx) to form the indy-hop super group, The Mighty Underdogs.

Headnod now offers his most impressive undertaking to date: Red Line Radio calling upon old friends and new collabs alike he has scripted an album like no other. From the lazily beautiful single/video Movin' On Up featuring a historic reunion of Latyrx to the classic boom bap of Haven't You Heard? with Sadat X of Brand Nubian and Scienz of Life; the progressive angst and rock influenced title track with Moe Pope and Raashan Ahmad to the free flowing instrumental of Russian River. Everything is accounted for: hip-hop, rock, jazz, spoken word, DJing, all kept at a safe combination behind the all overseeing eyes and ears of Headnodic.
