Like so many kids, Minneapolis youngster Charley Pugmire started playing the guitar in his early teen years. His first encounter with actual music production happened when he was fifteen, at a friend’s party. “I ended up staying in the basement during most of the party just fooling around with sounds, and I was hooked after that.”
Almost ten years later, there’s no trace of him plucking guitars. He now is 24 and his artist name changed to Tyler Hampton. His productions are supported by Pete Tong and Deadmau5 just to name a few. His sound is influenced by musicians like Rene Amesz, Fedde le Grand and D. Ramirez.
Hampton’s next release ‘Lil’ Mama’ is about to be released on PBR Recordings, the label of MC Flipside. Vocals are provided by King James. A release date is not known yet, but it will probably be before the end of this year. Luckily, the track can already be heard here:
Tyler Hampton – Lil Mama (Original Mix) by tylerhampton
No free downloads though. Like the bigger part of musicians selling their stuff on beatport he’d add: “If you honestly love and appreciate dance music, download it legally.” But here’s a promo mix to arm your ipod anyway, enjoy..
