Kasim Keto is planning his commercial debut, Long Car Rides, for a 11-19-2013 release via Babygrande Records. The LP exemplifies Kasim’s knack for seamlessly blending futuristic instrumentation with traditional boom-bap hip hop.
Born in Brooklyn and raised by two Jamaican immigrant parents, Kasim Keto finds his influences in a wide range of places and experiences. Having moved from New York, to Alabama, to Florida and then back to New York within the span of two years as an adolescent, Kasim found sanctity in a diverse array of musical styles, which is today reflected in his eclectic blend of production. Growing up in an impoverished household, Kasim saw music as a method of escape and an outlet for creative expression. Kasim began writing music at the age of 8 and it would go onto become a life-altering experience.
At 16 years-old, Kasim began cutting school, and unlike his peers, his days were not spent in relaxation, but rather working with pro audio gear in an effort to hone his talent as a producer. As Kasim explains, “working on several local projects and trying to gain notice became a facilitator of my musical talents.” After releasing numerous online projects to critical acclaim, Kasim is ready to show the world why he is in a lane of his own. As BrooklynBullshit raves, “keep an eye out” for Kasim Keto.
With an unmatched drive, Kasim blends hip hop, jazz, and electronic into a cohesive musical journey on Long Car Rides. Long Car Rides serves as a journey through the mind of Kasim Keto, as he takes listeners on a road trip of sonic delectation that they will not soon forget.
