After polishing cutting edge drum programming techniques and getting his fingers dusty from diggin in the crates to create beats of many different styles. Never afraid to push the envelope for that futuristic boom bap effect, Grand Ear short for (Grand Ear Experience) is always coming up with fresh and new ways to stimulate the senses, In the past couple of year he has shifted gears to a more electro feel on the 4lux label producing songs on there 2008 & 2009 Sub Soul compilations.
