Hyena History

Hyena Productions is the first official imprint of Beacon Meadows, established in late 2011 by MAN3 with Botchbud and Skunky as a microcosm of unfiltered creative madness. Since March of 2014, this deranged cackle of diverse artists has been managed by the mighty hyena of The Great White North, Botchbud. If Beacon Meadows is a family, then Hyena Productions is the Manson family. Be prepared to be pushed to the limits, because its time to expect the unexpected!

At its conception, Hyena Productions consisted of Botchbud and Skunky. Shortly after the launch of Hyena Productions, Skunky formed his live jam project YborCityDrumCircles, consisting of an interchanging line-up of Ybor City locals that would meet and perform on the sidewalks and alleys of the Ybor City core. Also during this time in the infancy of Hyena Productions, ukulele player Dakota and the mysterious Unknown Prophet became involved with Hyena Productions.

While living on a boat after moving out of Ybor City in the Spring of 2012, Skunky began working and collaborating with Diatomaceous Motherfucker and Ian. Though living on the boat only lasted a few months, the collaborative relationships he built with both of them continued after Skunky again moved back to Tampa and familiar ground. In the later part of the summer, after launching the Republican Natural Crisis 2012 project (resulting in an album, a mixtape and two short films), political commentator Jeff Cooper and saxophonist/professional stoner Tony Sierra began working with Hyena Productions. In December of 2012, electronic musician/mad scientist/genius Brian Price became associated with Hyena Productions.

In February 2013, Puerto Rico-based furstep producer Ne0n-Gr4ve began working with Hyena Productions. The end of March saw the launch of the Fuck Spice Smoke Weed project (in collaboration with Beacon Meadows artists Don Thomas and MAN3 and Beacon Meadows North artist Faiyaz Shah), resulting in two short films (and a soundtrack available through Beacon Meadows North). In early April of 2013, MAN3, Robert Oh and Skunky released a collaborative album as Hydra-Phonics. Near the end of the month, Skunky, Tony Sierra and guitarist/poet Drew Love formed the jam band The Temple Terraformers and guitarist Don Kyle-Yotee became involved with Hyena Productions. Christian-techno artist Dwreckillion joined in July of 2013.

In September of 2014, absurdcore artist Fob Rord began working with Hyena Productions. His friend and frequent collaborator DJ Dorothy Dahmer later joined in November of 2014, followed by experimental guitarist Ra Zombie in August of 2015.
