  • T-KLEX

    Music Producer & Mix Engineer

    Insota Music

    To say that T-Klex's sound is one all of his own may come across as cliche, but is a fact, nonetheless. His musical tastes encompass a rich blend of traditional and contemporary offerings all at once, and his dexterity on the keyboard leaves clients astounded. T-Klex easily brings an artist's vision to life in a way that defies words. Nifty with both software & hardware environments, Klex can bring that much needed vibe and musicality required during any session, and his unique ear for sound is something that easily sets him apart from the rest. 


    Music Producer, Remixer

    The ATM Company

    KK's approach to music creation can be described as nothing short of genius, and he truly is a music craftsman of this generation. Adept at creating catchy Hip Hop, Pop, Trap & Dubstep hooks and percussion syncopations that tickle the ears and rattle sub-woofers, KK delivers music that can be described as sonically rich, yet clinically precise. His knack for remixing is also something that is of remarkable note.


    Music Producer

    OrangeVille Music

    Energetic, frenetic, and gutsy is how to best describe LC Beatz's tactic in approaching music creation. He is comfortable on both sides of the live and electronic music divide, and this makes him able to wield the musical elements with a lot of skill and deep understanding. He is superb with african percussions and cultural rhythms and is able to seamlessly translate that into more western-themed productions.
