Arsiney Biography
"I am what I do. I am what others need me to be. I am what I accomplish." ICM/Marvel Management Group Presents.....

Michael Alexandre aka Arsiney, born April 10, 1986 to a time when epidemics came in threes; drugs, violence, and HIV. Though he was raised in this era his fate differed. His parents were epidemic-free! Although chaos surrounded him, "his world" was filled with musical legends such as Quincy Jones, James Brown, and Black ivory to name a few. Ars' father happened to be a habitual guitar player and mother a soulful listener; the two provided a blueprint to all that he wanted his life to be. Through sound and rhythm, rap became his reason and protest!
"All talent needs a home away from home". At the age of 12 he joined a rap group called Relicz, lead by then manager Ray Graham and Ivan Tibbs. Nevertheless, a leading light took its place and Arsiney embraced the solo spot with support of his band mates.
Arsiney was young and curious beyond his lyrics, Ivan identified his drive and feed his musical intellect. As Ivan introduced him to music production, Ray enlightened him on music engineering; Arsiney excelled! His outlet became the studio. The studio gave him a safe zone. He could release his inner-city finding on the mic. Ray's headquarter studio kept him off the streets most of the time, but living in the streets showed him how to hustle. Hearing gun shots made him appreciate life and losing friends along the way made him want to speak. His musical experience beyond his years and personal take on life is refreshing and honest. His love for music shows with each track he records.
In Arsiney's own words:
"WELCOME TO MY WORLD. LOUD, CALM, REAL, COLORFUL, HATE, LOVE, PAIN, STREET. I COULD USE EVERY WORD TO DESCRIBE MY MUSIC, BECAUSE MY MUSIC IS ME AND IT REFLECTS THE THINGS THAT GO ON IN MY MIND. WHEN I PRODUCE I LIKE TO PAINT A PICTURE. YOU SEE FOR ME SOUND IS ONLY 1D TO GIVE YOU 3D I HAVE TO BRING THE LISTNER DEEPER INTO MY MUSIC, IT'S MORE THAN JUST WHAT THEY HEAR, BECAUSE FOR ME WHEN I HEAR SOUNDS AND DRUMS IN MY MIND I SEE BACKDROPS AND COLORS AND STORIES BEHIND THEM. SO WHEN YOU HEAR A SOUND THAT I PRODUCE IF IT'S R&B I WANT YOU TO FEEL THE MUSIC AND VISUALIZE EVERY ESSENCE OF EVERY SOUND IN THE PRODUCTION. WHEN YOU HEAR KEYS BEING PLAYED ON A KEYBOARD I WANT YOU TO SEE STARS WITH EVERY RISING NOTE ON THE PIANO. IF YOU HEAR A SOULFUL SAMPLE I WANT TO FILL YOUR SOUL WITH MINES, AND THAT'S REAL MUSIC."
