Inspired by Hip-Hop's original legends, I'm making modern beats and mixes fresh again.
It can all start with a single sound, word, or melody.
Wherever you are in your music making process, it would be a pleasure to join you along the way. I operate a robust home studio just South of Ventura Boulevard in Sherman Oaks, CA. I am available for tracking, beatmaking, mixing, mastering, and any further production you may need. I am an upbeat, explorative collaborator looking to bring the best out of your creativity.
A collection of beats available for your project is on my SoundCloud (soundcloud.com/k4mer). Reach out if anything piques your interest! Technically, I am a three DAW producer, professionally capable in Ableton, Logic, and Pro Tools.
My knowledge of the music industry does not stop with production. With a resume including work at a major publisher and a degree from the Music Industry program at the University of Southern California, I am eager to share advice and guidance throughout the logistical process of releasing music. The details of music's creation and release can be unclear or confusing. As a producer, my responsibility shouldn't stop at just making beats.
