KARMA KNOWS

   Karma was born in 1994 in a small town in Illinois. He was adopted to a Christian family and lived most of his childhood in a small town Dyer an hour outside of Chicago. Even though Karma's Mom is a priest he himself is not necessarily religious. He has an amazing family that raised him well yet he always felt very different than them. His Mom would always find him locked in the basement playing hip hop music for hours straight every single day.

   Karma first started making music when he moved to Tri-Cities WA in 2010. Around 2012 he began releasing albums with a unique sound that can only be described as alternative hip hop. After getting kicked his audio engineering program in 2016 with Full Sail University (due to him spending more time on his music than school), he began to work exclusively with producer AS_1S, the two of them pioneering a collaborative new sound.  Karma's articulated flow and As_1S organic layered beats when combined create captivating, eclectic, conscious sound relatable to the masses.

Born 1991 in Midland Michigan, AS_1S relocated to Washington in his childhood. There he discovered his two loves cannabis and music. After attending college twice and dropping out twice he now spends half his time producing hash oil and the other half making music. His unique sound stems from having musical influences within many genres. Listening to Pink Floyd helped him pick up guitar in the 4th grade, and influenced by dance music and hip-hop, at age 16 he became fixated on building a musical machine inside his computer. 

“I think my style of production is based around the idea that all vibes that have been made are currently available to be recreated and mixed together. I think a "vibe" trumps all the musical parameters that you encounter in trying to create or categorically define what a song is. I love when something can't quite be tied down with musical language. you just feel it.”
