With 11 years work behind the turntables,and as a part of the esteemed production duo “The Hoodfellas”, Hoboken New Jerseys AB Logic has become a staple in the east coast’s electronic music scene. A versitile DJ and producer, AB Logic made a name for himself through his uprfront mixing style and impeccable set programing. The Hoodfellas dropped their debut EP “The Breaking and Entering EP” on DJ Sneak and Chuck Daniels’ Sampled Recordings in 2007 and haven’t looked back since. In the same year they earned a spot on Mark Farina’s “Live in Toyko” CD on Om Records, and (along with Danny White and Ruky of Slum Science/Hudd Traxx/The Nonbelievers) started their “Smoke City Music” record label. The Hoodfellas have since released tracks on Greenskeepers Music, Greenhouse Recordings, Chillin Music, 1200 Beats, Flatpack Tracks, Black Crack Records, and on their own Smoke City Imprint.

When AB Logic is not busy in the studio or handling label affairs his focus is Synesthesia NYC, which he kicked off in March 2006 at Miami’s WMC.
