Kkami is a music producer based out of Orlando, Florida. Having aligned himsielf with Milwaukee’s Noh Life music collective early in his production career, the time within this creative ecosystem yielded a number of sold out shows, festival appearances, a host position on Noh Life’s monthly radio show, and an album credit to the entire collective on Frank Ocean’s 2016 avant-soul offering “Endless”. Kkami’s musical tendencies evoke the same impression as staring through the lens of a microscope.
Kinetic melodies and granular drum work weave into and out of themselves to form a kind of living organism, coercing color and energy into the empty space between phrases and twirling hip-hop’s dynamic energy with the white-knuckle excitement of left- field electronic music’s most dazzling moments. This can be heard through his production for his band seeyousoon. Whether it was their critically acclaimed debut album, VIDÉ, or their second album, HZLIKEHELL, you can hear his sounds come to life. Much like any kind of living system, it behaves with equal parts tenacity and curiosity. For each and every segment that is left behind, new pathways and ideas stem outward into the unknown.
This is where Kkami strives and continues to paint more sounds with his solo music. Riding into the unknown territory of melodies and nostalgia, Kkami combines digital synth melodies with acoustic instruments to bring to life a voice once lost: his own. This is only the beginning for his exciting new solo singing career. There are those who tread music’s well-worn path, and there are those who push to disrupt the normalcy.
