KIYOSHI (live set)

In the world of hip-hop, Kiyoshi is utterly unique: a versatile rapper, poet, and singer/songwriter who explores the alternative direction of conscious living. His passion to deliver entertaining and thought-provoking messages and hope for humanity is evident throughout the deep layers of his Pacific Islander and African American heritage and musical roots he embraces like no one else has (or could).

Trained by his music teacher father and seasoned through years of poetry slams, talent shows, and musical and rap performances, Kiyoshi found his audience in the Metro Detroit hip-hop scene in the early 2000's while a student at Eastern Michigan University. Always at the grindstone, he saw success as a rapper and songwriter while earning his degree in Communications.

His creative combination of soul and swagger were immediately obvious upon the 2004 release of his tour de force "Unorthodox Slang." That disc, in addition to his EP "Headknod Oddyssey," full length album "The Talent Show (2009)," and his 2013 valentine's mixtape "Herstory in the Making," all proved popular with hugely diverse audiences from all over the world. Kiyoshi's last project "The Affirmation EP" made a huge impact in inspiring the masses. He is currently working on a new project set to debut in early 2016. All of his work leading up to now, has set the stage for a rewarding career and is still receiving immense support and admiration across the globe.

As shown by his endless and successful hustling for listeners, he is neither a hobbyist nor an amateur. A rising and undeniable voice in hip-hop who has been compared to Common and L.L. Cool J., Kiyoshi has shared the stage with Big Sean, Aloe Blacc, Mayer Hawthorne, Matisyahu, MC Yogi, Danny Brown, Eligh of Living Legends, Nahko Bear, Saul Williams, Elzhi of Slum Village, Black Milk, One Be Lo of Binary Star, Matthew Santos, Fred Hammond, DJ Drez, Luminaries, Kirtaniyas, and more. Yoshi's work has also been featured on MTV, VH1, FUSE TV On Demand, and countless other networks.

He is a veteran of the business with underground credibility and mainstream appeal. His refreshingly pure, conscious, and soul-driven music as well as his intense personal charisma are making him unstoppable in 2015-2016. Watch yourself. Kiyoshi already blew up right before your eyes.

Ultimate Fantastic

Ultimate Fantastic is an unparalleled combination of intelligent lyricism and spine melting R&B vocals upon a foundation of meticulously produced original bass music. Initially joining forces for a Burning Man project, this team of West Coast musicians quickly won the affection of any audience who caught their show, which features an infectious array of supreme talent, friendship, humor and creative prowess on stage. Ultimate Fantastic is comprised of Julian Fritz (Dropical) on production, Deja Solis on seductive, soulful and intriguing vocals, and Pharroh and Wink delivering intricately laced word-play and emcee vocal precision. All four members are seasoned artists who have toured extensively world wide and been involved with a versatile line-up of influential musical groups including Hamsa Lila, Vagabundos, Pega5u5, to name a few. Steeped in the West Coast, the group draws from a variety of influences including underground hip-hop, festival sub- cultures, electronic dance music and roots and soul tradition; and synthesizes their original artistry into ardent and unbridled musical expression and storytelling. Their sound is at once tasteful and classic as it is futuristic and imaginative. Their debut album “Super Human,” released by Jumpsuit Records, is sure to win your heart and delight your senses with its adventurous, refreshing, and refined musical spirit. Look for the album release January 27th 2017.
