Taurus M. James


Helping Other People Elevate in Music and Life.

New Music!

I am H.O.P.E.

Helping Other People Elevate

My name is Taurus James and I am a music producer from the United States. I also use the names TaurusBeats, DreZimmer, Kid Kikit and Coach T.

I specialize in Electronic, Hip-Hop, Soul and R&B inspired by the sounds of the late 80's and 90's. My music would be best described as a mixture of Old School Hip-Hop and R&B with Smooth Jazz and Classical influences.

Thanks for stopping by! Grace and Peace, fam!



Taurus M. James


As an artist, I make Moody Mental Music spontaneously in live streaming "Soul Speak Sessions" and release the music under my real name. These sessions often include piano freestyles (off-the-top, improvisations) - one-time performances that are like journal entries.

While my Moody Mental Music expresses my thoughts and feelings through music, my goal is to inspire listeners and offer them grace and peace.

Influences include: George Benson, Bob James, Brian Culbertson

Sample-Flip Beat Maker

I love flipping samples into something new and I love listening to other beat makers and producers master this craft.

My YouTube channel has a few videos showing how I use Reason Suite 11 to make sample flip beats, but I posted many never-heard-before sample-flip beats at my TaurusBeats website.

Influences include: J-Dilla, 9th Wonder, Pete Rock




Music Producer

I started producing in 2003, while I was the drummer for The Upper Room Gospel Jazz Band - my jazz band from Ogden, Utah. Currently, I am producing under the name DreZimmer and helping artists elevate in their music careers.

I decided to use a different name to signify a different direction in my career and to give a nod to my influences - Dr. Dre and Hans Zimmer.

Artists include: CoCo Kimmie, The Upper Room



Kid Kikit

DJ / Rapper

As the youngest Radio DJ at the US Air Force Academy at the time, I picked the name "Kid Kikit" and it stuck, even when I started rapping and DJ-ing parties.

I was known for quick wit and freestyle ability as a rapper. As a DJ, I was known for my mixing and party sets. My DJ years across the USA trained my ears for beat making and music production.

Influences include: DJ Jazzy Jeff, Gucci-D (Rod Ross of the ChillVille Crew in Tallahassee, FL)

Coach T


As Coach T, I mentor and motivate young men and help them see themselves in more positive ways, while challenging them to elevate in all areas of life.

Whether it's JAM Camp (Xenia, Ohio), The Victory Project (Dayton, Ohio), or Civilian Male Military Spouses around the world, I help people navigate the world around them - sharing my life story and letting them know they are not alone on the journey.

Influences include: All the men who helped me to see myself.
