TODAY’S FUTURE SOUND //

Currently, we offer free training in the San Francisco Bay Area that covers progressive techniques employed in Hip/Hop and Electronic music production and DJ’ing.

Co-founder and director, Dr. Elliot Gann, a professional psychologist/producer, has been teaching in San Francisco Bay Area schools and community settings for nearly a decade. He has also conducted empirical dissertation research on Therapeutic Hip Hop activity groups, involving both rapping and beatmaking, which demonstrated the significant positive effects of such interventions. Building off of both his research findings and experience, Dr. Gann is now leading TFS to continue such work and further advocate for its use, including expanded wellness/mental health, educational, economic and social justice applications.

Our focus is on underserved communities particularly in Oakland, where we are based. We do workshops and ongoing classes in both community settings (community and youth centers like Youth Uprising) and in Oakland/Berkeley Unified School Districts at schools such as King, Edna Brewer, West Oakland Middle, Jefferson and Hoover Elementary among other places. This includes current collaborative work being done with Science, Math, Computer and Technology teachers at West Oakland Middle School to find innovative ways of delivering STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) curriculum.

PHILTHYBEATS //

philtybeats_GS_960w

A veteran of the beat battle scene and internationally traveling doctor of beats, Phillipdrummond began producing and digging for records in the late 90′s in NYC where he grew up. Informed by the Golden Era of Hip Hop at the epicenter of the movement, Boom-Bap pumps through Philthy’s veins and colors the word he sees in a Boom Bap way. Philthy headed West in ’99 to study and live in California and became heavily involved in the battle rap scene, and then the beat battle scene, running a monthly beat battle in San Francisco for 10 years ongoing now. During this time he produced several albums and has rocked shows and beat battles from the Bay Area to Mississippi to NYC to Toronto to Paris to Dakar, Senegal, where he was an artist/beat maker-in-residence with the US State Department and UNC Chapel Hill’s Next Level Hip Hop Diplomacy program leading his students in a live performance in front of a crowd of 800. Philthy returns to Australia, having come five years ago to do a four-city beat battle/rap battle/Philthy Australia album launch tour, with this year’s tour as the sequel. Before heading to Sydney, Philthy will have taught beats to hundreds of Australian youth in prison facilities, schools and community settings and done beat battles/shows in Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, and Perth. Sydney will be the culminating flashpoint of a beat-drive national Australian tour!
