Ever since meeting in Israel during the 2016 Reality Music conference, Roahn Hylton & Jacob Yoffee have been working together on projects for record labels, film, television & advertising. They scored Robert Downey, Jr.’s ‘Age of A.I.’ series, Kevin Hart’s ‘Don’t F**k This Up’ for Netflix and Amazon’s highly acclaimed 'Free Meek' series which was produced by Jay-Z & Meek Mill.
They created a song-heavy pop-score for YouTube’s 'Sherwood'; a dystopic animated sci-fi series that re-imagines the Robin Hood tale. And, drawing on their jazz & hip-hop backgrounds they created the soundtrack for Lebron James’ ‘Best Shot’. Their score, which featured both songs & instrumental pieces was released by Warner Bros on the Water Tower Music label.
Prior to that they worked with Janelle Monae on the 2017 G.A.P. campaign, ‘Grind Now, Shine Later’ about the story of Chris Boucher for the NBA as well as several independent film productions.
