Ramon Ibanga

The world of hip-hop is as competitive as ever, and nowhere is that truer than among producers, one of the few lucrative positions left in the market. !llmind doesn’t let that get him down as he believes to "Reach for the stars, and the sky can never be your limit.". This is extremely apparent with !llmind as he has thoroughly thrown himself into the music business. He has produced songs with 50 Cent (Queens, Make A Movie, All His Love), Ludacris, LL Cool J, and even The Jabbawockeez (America's Best Dance Crew season 1 Champs). Since then he's released multiple full-length albums along with his own full-length instrumental album called "Beh!nd The Curta!n". He also plays executive producer for 3 separate groups Fortilive (Mushmouf & Slo-Mo), SunZoo (Drunken Tiger, Yoon Mirae, Roscoe Umali & Styliztik Jones), and Smokey Robotic, a band which has garnered the attention of multiple Hollywood superstars such as Lindsay Lohan, Samantha Ronson, and more.

 !llmind has also been featured in multiple magazine and online publications, such as Scratch Magazine (Top 20 Best Producers), Hip Hop Weekly, Mass Appeal, The Source, XXL, Hiphopgame.com, and Hiphopdx.com. As an advocate for education in music business and production, !llmind taught Music Production Business classes at one of NYC's largest non-profit organizations, Harlem Children's Zone, and was recently hired at the prestigious Clive Davis Department Of Recorded Music at NYU as a Technical Music Instructor. Taking his entrepreneurship even further, !llmind started his own bi-weekly producer showcase event in NYC called "Beats, Love, Alcohol & Party" (B.L.A.P.), which gives up-coming and established music producers a chance to showcase exclusive music in a club atmosphere. The event has been a huge success, with participants such as Amadeus (Hitmen/Bad Boy), Mr. Fingaz (Ja Rule/Fabolous), Digga (50 Cent/Jay-Z), and more.

 With an on-going digital compilation series called "Blaps, Rhymes & Life" (touting over 200,000 downloads worldwide & 5 Volumes), an exclusive bi-monthly event for his fellow producers, and a handful of music for both underground and mainstream/pop artists in the works, things can only get bigger.
