“As a young boy I remember the song “Roxanne, Roxanne” by UTFO playing on the radio. I really liked the song, but most of all I wanted to know how the song was made. This was the ﬁrst time I felt the desire to write, sing, and perform. ” - Zaiter.
Having found an interest in music he began teaching himself how to play the piano. He also began learning how to sing. From Classical Music to Latin Jazz, he wanted to learn it all. His hard work and natural talent made him stand out from the rest of the crowd. While continuing his music education at the Boys Harbor Center in El Barrio in New York Zaiter met Eddie Torres. Zaiter saw in him the ideal role model – a true maestro of Latin music. He soon realized that Latin music was his true passion.
In 1999, Zaiter left New York after his father’s tragic death with the hope of starting a new life. He moved to Tampa, Florida and began working on his ﬁrst album entitled “I AM EDDY Z.” As an artist working in a true recording studio for the ﬁrst time, Zaiter wanted to showcase his musical evolution – from the small boy learning to play the piano to the grown man with roots ﬁrmly planted in the Urban music scene. The record received excellent reviews and was well liked by the radio stations and clubs in the Tampa Bay area. This gave Zaiter a push into the local music scene with multiple performances, the most memorable ones being Latin Fest and Guavaween. The record also gave Zaiter the opportunity to work with local artists and singers.
Dobson got into this line of work in 2011, when a college friend was coming through town doing tech work for Drake and invited Dobson to the show to introduce him to what the gig involved, knowing that Dobson already had the required knowledge base and skills. Three weeks later, Dobson got on a plane to L.A. to prepare for that tour with Mike Posner. Once you're in the world of doing tech work, like many other professions, you network and end up doing gigs you never would have expected to get. Dobson's former roommate, the Ghostly International label artist Mux Mool, introduced him to Tycho in 2014, and in turn, Tycho's production manager connected Dobson with M83.
