Tears of Technology is a breakbeat musician / producer. Inspired by such artists as Ford, Infiniti, Kyper, Robert Miles, and Tony Faline, his style is a mixture of breakbeat and trance.
With over a decade of experience in Neo Freestyle, he also produces breakbeat-style genres such as eHop Electro, and (under the persona of “New Orleans’ Dan the Man”) progressive trance music. Tears believes that growing up in the culture-rich environment of New Orleans, where music is the main outlet for emotion, contributes to his unique sound.
Since gaining recognition for his independent release of the album "The Soul Never Forgets”, Tears of Technology has appeared on several labels as a remixer, including Jive/Zomba, Island, XYZ, and Live Wire. He co-wrote songs for London Exchange and produced the maxi single "Lady" by Jim Davis Jr. for Casa Records He is also executive producer on several releases from his own label, 504 Productions.
The Tears’ compositions are emotional tunes that come directly from his heart and soul. Songs such as "Get the Funk", "Empathy", and "Killing in My Name" get to the root of who he is as an EDM artist. His philosophy was inspired by men such as John Lennon, Bill Hicks, and George Carlin: A true artist is more about expression than competition.
