Tactilian is an American musician and producer currently residing in Vientiane, Laos. Originally drawn to guitar-driven genres such as punk and hardcore as a teen, his tastes gradually broadened, bringing him into various styles of as jazz, funk/soul, psychedelic rock, and hip-hop. His tracks pull from these various genres to create a sonic palette that is at once wide and difficult to label.
As a hip-hop producer, his biggest influences come from several artists who made their mark during the 90s, including the Dust Brothers’ work with the Beastie Boys, Gangstarr, and Nujabes.
