The Angel

Profile:
The Angel is a record producer, film composer and recording artist. She hails from Brooklyn and is now based in LA via a nice long stint in London. Her sound encompasses flavors from the many places she has lived in. She's taken an independent approach to recording her own albums after signing to Delicious Vinyl back in '93. She has been committed to building her own catalogue of recordings since then... and has worked with an eclectic group of vocalists and musicians often taking people out of their associated genres and giving them a platform to branch out into unknown territory. Many of these relationships started from her early days of remixing fellow artists like label mates, The Pharcyde and The Brand New Heavies as well as other acts like Spearhead, DJ Food, Frente, Monday Michiru and more...

Some of these early introductions led to her producing tracks for Tre Hardson, Mystic, Jacky Terrasson and Monday Michiru. Always a big advocate of the artist, she took Mystic under her wing and was instrumental in getting her signed to GoodVibe Recordings, who Angel felt would respect Mystic's artistic integrity.

The Angel produces an undefinable mixture of downtempo atmospherics, with hints of hip hop, reggae, jazz, dub and soul all infused with her own vibe. Because she programs and engineers all of her recordings the ideas are coming out undiluted... though collaborating with other artists has always produced something unique as well as spiritually satisfying.

The cinematic quality of her work led her to film scoring. She's one of a small handful of female composers... "Boiler Room" and "Gridlock'd" are among the films she has worked on and the UK feature, "Kidulthood." This cutting edge and important British film gives us a gritty look at what life is really like for a group of 15 year olds in West London and the challenges they face growing into adulthood. "The Heart Of The Game" is an inspiring look at girls high school basketball, exploring the racism, sexism and competition that the Seattle Roughriders and their unorthodox coach have lived through over six seasons.

In 2006/07 Angel infiltrated primetime network TV, scoring the FOX drama, "Standoff" starring Ron Livingston and Rosemarie DeWitt. Always looking for a new challenge... and keeping the projects varied, she scored the inspirational Lifetime original movie, "Racing For Time", for director/actor, Charles "Roc" Dutton as well as the UK's cutting edge BBC3 / Kudos produced drama, "WEST 10 LDN" for director, Menhaj Huda.
