From there he went to I.A.R an Engineering school in NYC. After graduation he started an internship at Unique Recording Studios, one of the largest studios in NYC. There Nate learned how to operate an SSL and Neve mixing board and other equipment that was commonly used in high tech studios. After a few years of interning and working as an Assistant Engineer, there was a turning point in artists using their label budget to invest in home studios which resulted in large studios loosing money and clients. That was the turning point for him to invest in his AkAI MPC60II Drum machine/Sampler.
Record shopping, chopping loops, drums and turning nothing into something was the start of Nate developing his sound. Opening himself to a buying a keyboard and taking piano lessons, was the next level to building his style as OneMan Beats. Once OneMan Beats was confident enough he began to take meetings with labels such as Rocafella, Interscope and various other labels where they would take notice in his efforts in not having beats that sounded the same. Remixing became something he started doing to hear how his music would sound with an artist on it, which lead to him landing various mixtape slots for remixing artist like Nas, Jay-z Sean Paul and Elephant man to name a few. Fast forward till the last 5 years he began to realize it may be worth trying to focus more on bypassing the label and going straight for the artist and management themselves.
By doing that OneMan Beats had such luck in handing beat cds to artist like G-Dep("Redlight") which landed a placement on an indie release. Currently OneMan Beats is taking matters into his own hands by Working on his own Albums & Ep as the Artist/Producer presenting featured artists. These Compilation projects will show his wide range of skills in genres such as Dancehall Reggae, Hip Hop, Pop, R&B and Pop. Read more on Last.fm.
