Originally identified by his comedic producer tag “Wait, so Mozado made this?” Tyler Campbell AKA Mozado is a Boston-based beatmaker, music producer, DJ, audio engineer, and now adds vocalist to the impressively long list. Initially working closely with other recording artists or putting his distinctive spin remixing other releases Mozado now boldly steps up to the mic in complete control of his creative output.
A graduate of the Mary Pappert School of Music of Duquesne University and having played jazz and classical saxophone for over 12 years, Tyler’s musical influences range from Hip-Hop to EDM, R&B/Soul, Jazz, Pop, and Classical. This lifetime of passion coupled with a broad taste in music creates something truly refreshingly nonconformist in each release.
Releasing November 16th, Hellacopters is a statement of intent for Mozado’s new direction. Simple chords and adlibbed vocal melodies introduce us to both his voice and the carefree tone of the track, and as the sharp hip-hop drums build the groove, a vivacious synth sweeps in, ushering in an electronic dimension that’s bursting with a positive energy.
With his solo debut EP set to drop at the turn of the year, Mozado aims to lead Boston into the same musical playing field as cities like Atlanta, Toronto, Nashville, New Orleans, and Chicago through collaboration and example.
Sharing an insight to Hellacopters, Mozado shares:
“Hellacopters is my first step into performing on my own productions. It is the energy of being a young independent artist with no limits and being from a city that, I believe, is in the perfect position to create its own musical identity.”
