IV the Polymath is a US-born instrumental musician & hip-hop producer with over a decade of musical experience. After several well-received digital & cassette releases he’s back at it with New vs. Old; a unique blend of live instrumentation & hip-hop production.
Despite flying under the radar, IV has been steadily building a name for himself thru music licensing (Mountain Dew Tour 2011), collaborations (junclassic, Atari Blitzkrieg), radio play (XM Radio, WEFUNK Radio), & charity work (St. Jude Children’s Hospital, Charity: Water).
Musically, New vs. Old is crossroads between where IV’s been & where he’s headed. Advanced arrangements, diverse textures, & skillful breakdowns all work to define his unique sound & leave listeners wondering why they haven’t heard of him before. Add in hard-hitting drums, funky basslines, & soulful keys & each track is a musical journey in & of itself.
