Jimmy Ledrac

Jimmy Ledrac is a Soundism producer. He was born in the rather small swedish town Eskilstuna in 1977. At the age of eight he started playing the drums but never really took the interest in percussive instruments any further. In 1994, during the fading era of grunge rock, he picked up the guitar and started writing songs. The original idea was to develop the tunes with a band but Ledrac couldnt seem to find any other band members to join into the project. The main reason for this was the fact that his main ambition at the time was to become a painter. A couple of years later, in 1999 to be precise, a friend introduced him the basics in studio based music production. Since this day Jimmy Ledrac has virtually produced tracks on a daily basis! In 2002 Jimmy met the Looptroop rapper Promoe and they ended up recording a track called Layin Bricks a track where also canadian Mathematik and german Raptile appeared as guests. Layin Bricks was released as a 12" single and also featured the B-side Head-On Collision, a track where the Looptroop emcee Cosmic also joined in. The year after this project Jimmy and Raptile continued their collaboration and teamed up in Raptiles studio in Munich (M√ľnchen), Germany. These sessions ended up with ten tracks for the Raptile album Classic Material (Subword/SonyBMG), feat. Wayne Wonder and Necro among others - released in August 2004. Parallel with the work on the Raptile album Jimmy also kept his solo production album in progress. This album contains a wide range of guest appearances - e.g; Declaime a.k.a.Dudley Perkins, Promoe (Looptroop), Braille (Lightheaded), Wordsworth, Prophetix member Eddie Meeks, Naili (France) and Providence Rockwell. Jimmy Ledrac is currently producing a number of different artists but also working with his brand new band - Dayz II Face - together with the american emcee Providence Rockwell.
