Thomas “ANTE” Walter is a music producer based out of Long Beach, CA. Influenced by a variety of artists and musical genres, ANTE has been producing hip hop beats since the age of 12 and has worked with numerous recording artists on the West Coast including Erreon Lee, Hi Rez, Tayyib Ali, and Ess Vee. He relies heavily on record stores throughout Southern California to find hidden musical gems to sample into his beats, giving his musical style the same richness and warmth found in Soul and R&B of past decades.
Featured here are Third Eye Records and Dyzzy on Vynyl, both of which are considered the go-to record stores in Long Beach.

Went out to see my boy Azad kill it at Brokechella with a bunch of other talented artists. Snapped off a couple of dope photos and chopped it up with him and the homies… we already got some music in the works, one of which may possibly be his single for his up and coming project, but lets keep that under wraps for now. Just wanted to show love man, Azad is super talented and a very humbling person same with his clique. Future’s looking bright G I’m glad I can be apart of it! And shout out to Brokechella 2014 for a smooth safe festival, really hope they continue to do this.
Swing through his Soundcloud and check his music out:
Tayyib finally decided to drop our track we made about 2 years ago at my crib in Long Beach… damn time flys. Always was feelin the vibe of this joint. The homies Janson , PJ and Yofray were here just kickin it too so Philly was definitely in the house! Or my house you could say haha, it was dope. It was just a super nice ass day out so Tay and I just quickly laced this up and went to kick it poolside (hence the open second verse). Artists now have the chance to spit the second verse and the best one will get featured on his upcoming mixtape Keystone 3! More details about that coming soon… I would start writing if I were you!
