Drew Wheeler, aka halc, is an independent songwriter, producer and rapper, and one of the founding members of the VGM-inspired hip hop trio Zone Runners. He is best known for his prolific output of both VGM remixes and original music, composing the soundtrack to the iOS racer Bitstream, his directorial work on several OC ReMix community albums and countless compilation appearances. As of 2014, halc has shifted his focus away from his trademark 9-bit style to explore the world of vocal hip hop. A collaborator at heart, halc teamed up with DiGi Valentine in 2012 to form Zone Runners, and bing, bang, boom, that just made sense. It all made perfect sense.
Academically defined as a graphic designer, halc is currently sited in Burlington, NC, along with his wife and three crazy cats. Some of his favorite things are Netflix, Colts football, Satoshi Kon, fried potatocakes, golfing, outdoor fireplaces, anything involving Ricky Gervais, an undisturbed night’s sleep, and a glass Beefeater gin with a splash of lime.
