Boonie Mayfield, aka Solomon Vaughn, aka Boon Doc, rose to internet stardom by performing live Hip Hop beats on his MPC 1000 and sharing said performances on Youtube before doing so became a thing. Over the years he matured as an artist, was robbed of almost all of his equipment, but managed to re-emerge as a multi-instrumentalist who no longer depended on sampled material and instead created the type of music that beat-makers would dream of sampling. Unfortunately, not all of his fan base appreciated his progress. Despite the fact that his newer works showed a stepped improvement both technically and musically over his older works his fan base shrank. Maybe it was because many of his fans were aspiring producers who got left behind in the wake of his progress. They could picture themselves eventually being able to do what he did with an MPC but knew they could never pick up the drums, keys and bass guitar the way he did. Or maybe his shift towards more soulful music threw them off. Whatever the reason, Boonie stuck with his guns and re-emerged as one of the best, and most interesting Hip Hop producers/performers in the wider Hip Hop community today. - ondaflor.com (2014)

"Soul is a term that a lot of producers seem keen to have associated with their music – browse any repository’s soul section and you’ll find a glut of music that… well, isn’t soul.  We’re not purists per se, but I do think it’s a bit of a stretch to call hip hop beats with soul samples soul. When Boonie Mayfield calls himself a Hip Hop and Soul producer however, he means it in the truest sense of the word." - ohdratdigital.com (2011)

"A dancer, songwriter and beat executioner, Boon Doc has managed to stay in his lane while carving a niche of modernism and originality. Applying the principles of production, he's created a sound and technique all his own." - Ru Johnson | Denver Westword (2010)
