Strid Iron is #Flyah

Andrew Stridiron is an independent hip hop artist, producer, sound engineer, and video technician from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He has put together every aspect of his past and current music projects. Stridiron was raised by two parents in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He grew up knowing God through his church and parents, and began to build his faith in Christ as he got older.
     His major inspiration in music has been rap and electronic artists such as “The Ambassador, Daft Punk, Da’ T.R.U.T.H., J.U.S.T.I.C.E., Cross Movement, Shai Linne, and The Chemical Brothers.“ In High School, he was introduced by a High School classmate to a recording software name “Fruityloops.” He immediately became interested, and began using the software including other recording equipment that he bought to record his own music in the basement of his parent’s house. In 2007, he moved to Washington D.C to complete his education in Audio Production at the Art Institute of Washington D.C. He graduated in 2010 with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Audio Production.
     After he left college, Stridiron continued to work on his music by implementing electronic and hip hop elements into his music. Since then he has produced music for the Washington Wizard's professional basketball team media (documentary) and has been awarded for music. He’s currently residing in Woodbridge Virginia and has had the amazing privilege to continue recording and mixing his music at a studio out of Arlington Virginia.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
