beats headphons Vancouver music producer Vinay Vyas abandons neuroscience for beats
Vancouver’s Vinay Vyas, 23, gave up his academic studies to embark on a musical career. to work with Ace Hood.
These days, the Vancouver native is “goin’ kindergarten” with help from a Saturday Night Live alumnus and a Scandinavian pop star.
Vyas, 23, and his production partner, Justin Davey, created the throbbing beats and chilly Asian flavoured melody for Go Kindergarten, a raunchy urban dance single by Andy Samberg’s musical comedy group, The Lonely Island, and Sweden’s quirky bottle blond,
The video for the track, which has notched more than five million views on YouTube, stars hip hop mogul Sean Combs and actor Paul Rudd taking part in a perverse version of Simon Says on the dance floor eating garbage, punching their friends, and whipping out certain appendages which require pixelation.
Go Kindergarten is one of two Vyas/Davey tracks on The Lonely Island’s The Wack Album, which debuted at No. 7 on the Neilsen Soundscan charts in Canada, and No. last month. The second, I F ed My Aunt, featuring rapper T Pain, is a creepy tune about doing the nasty with an extended family member. Blame Samberg and his Island buddies, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone.
“We sent a folder of beats to The Lonely Island six months ago and next thing we know,
they recorded songs with two of them. It was just one of those things that happened there wasn’t a lot of extra work needed to be done.”
