Ab The Audicrat
Albany, New York native Brendan Paulsen has made it his mission to simply create the type of music that he wants to listen to: a soundtrack that is indubitably solid, polished and delectable. Producing under the moniker Ab The Audicrat (previously Abs01ute), Paulsen has spent the last 15 years honing his craft and studying all elements of hip-hop. His body of work includes production for artists such as C-Rayz Walz, Bender, Giant Gorilla Dog Thing, Astronautalis, Jimmy The Loch, Caucasian, Benn Grim, Timmy Wiggins, Grimace, Climax and Intikana, among others, with his catalog as a solo artist including Absolute Hip-Hop (2005 and 2011) and The Game of Rap: Altered Beats (2011). In 2014, he produced the vast majority of Giant Gorilla Dog Thing's double LP HORSE, which was released via Pig Food Records and heavily represented the innovative rap coming out of the criminally slept-on upstate New York area. In 2017, he and Shyste released their collaborative Lord of the Flys LP. Ab The Audicrat is happily entering the next chapter of his career, kicking it off with End of an Era Pt.1 & 2, a 2 part instrumental series, available now.
