Ramon “!llmind” Ibanga Jr. is a 2x Grammy Winning/10x Grammy Nominated multi-platinum music producer who’s worked with artists such as Kanye West, J Cole, Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Beyonce & Jay-Z, Future, Lil Uzi Vert, Romeo Santos, Lin Manuel Miranda (Hamilton + Moana) 2 Chainz & many more. He is the founder of “Blap-Kits”, a series of “beat-making” tools available for music producers which eventually helped pioneer the now multi-million dollar per year “drum kit & sound pack” industry. As a consistent advocate and voice in the music production world, his weekly podcast “Illmind Put The Loop On” boasted a die-hard music producer driven following, including industry special guests such as Boi-1da, Murda Beatz, Ryan Leslie, Russ, Brian Michael Cox and many more. He is also known for traveling to various cities, bringing together up-coming music creators in “secret studio locations” to network, vibe, play music & engage in their creative community.
In 2021, Illmind introduced a new side to his business by engaging with WEB3. He released the first ever “sample pack NFT” which sold for 4.5 ETH ($9,000 at the time) and sent a shockwave in the industry, built a metaverse recording studio (for VR meet ups) and launched his coveted pfp project Squad Of Knights NFT, boasting collectors/members such as Gary Vee, Rob Markman, Altcoin Daily and many web2/web3 industry vets.
