Join us at NLR Studios as we give you an inside look at what it's like to live the #StudioLife. Moe Vibez & Bilistic, Co-creators of The Insomniacs, bring to you a never-before-seen outlook on the life of underground artists pursuing their dreams. With episodes dropping weekly on Fridays, we invite you to tune in and experience this with us. Filmed, edited, recorded, mixed all under 1 roof. Everything you see and hear has been produced by NLR Studios, and The Insomniacs.
The man who was born Scott Al-Tall to an American mother of Irish/German descent and a Jordanian father who split when Bilistic was six weeks old, has crammed a lot of living into his years. One of four siblings, he lived a nomadic existence until age 15, when the family finally put down roots in Wichita, Kansas. Today he is the owner of New Life Records, N.L.R. Studios, The Insomniacs Video Production Company, & New Life Apparel.
Bilistic has opened for almost every hip hop heavyweight to blow through the Midwest–Nelly, Bone Thugs & Harmony, Curre$y, Cypress Hill, Jagged Edge, Lloyd, Ashanti, Tech 9... the list goes on. He’s headlined and attracted crowds as large as 10,000 people in major market venues from Dallas to Denver; from Chicago to Miami, and Las Vegas to Phoenix. He has performed at major events such as MTVU Spring, DanceFestopia, SXSW Music Fest & many more. Aside from having sold over 60,000 copies of his self-released albums, Bilistic’s music is continually streamed/downloaded, and has been embraced by program directors in a 10-state radius.
The latest album release, “Puppet Master,” is Bilistic’s 20th studio album. This album is 100% written, recorded, mixed, AND mastered by Bilistic at his own N.L.R. Studios. He joined forces with super producer Thomas Forever to bring you an album that will vividly transport you through a musical journey that only a true word smith can bring to life. From beginning to end, this masterpiece will make you laugh, make you cry, make you love, & for 51 minutes, it will have you on the edge of your seat! Between that, helping his son sign a Major Record Label Deal, producing music & videos for many local & national acts, starting a fashion brand & securing an acting role in the major film Unsurety, Bilistic is attacking the industry from all angles.
The “proof is in the pudding,” & if you ever get the privilege to see Bilistic perform you will quickly see why he has successfully & consistently been creating and performing original music for over 20 years. Part of the key to his success is not limiting himself to any constraints or boxes. Bilistic makes music for all people. Whether you enjoy hip hop, rap, rock n roll, r&b, the blues, or even country music, he has something for you! Raised on country music, inspired by 90’s hip hop, front man & drummer of several rock & roll bands, Bilistic is truly a one of a kind entertainer!
