Aesthetically minded, New Zealand-bred electronic talent Kamandi cemented his role as industry mainstay in the wake of his 2013 Red Bull Sound Select sponsorship. His cerebral trap productions are hallmarked by ominous bass lines and evocative sonic elements, engulfing the listener in a deeply somber atmosphere. Premiering with EARMILK, Kamandi's new visual accompaniment for his track "I Always Did" (directed by Samuel Morris and Fabio Tozzo) stylishly juxtaposes the chilling auditory mood with an equally striking visual translation, plunging the viewer into a menacing universe where faith and greed are one in the same.
Collaborations with the likes of Kevin McCall, Waka Flocka, Riff Raff, and DJ Paul buoyed Kamandi's swift ascension, motivated by his passion to share his experience and evolve as an a multi-faceted genre defying artist. With millions of streams and a laundry list of illustrious collaborations with high profile producers such as Myles William (Beyonce, Iggy Azalea, Kendrick Lamar), Southside (Drake, Jay-Z, Future) and Scoop Deville (Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, Kendrick Lamar) under his belt, there's no denying Kamandi is a tastemaker to watch.
