Skater Punk Hip Hop Chic, Introducing Kovas & The Ghetto Beat
"A little Punk, A little thug people call it Thunk."....
Once there was a kid that was just as influenced by Nirvana as he was by Dr.Dre. Just as influenced by Radiohead as he was by Prince.On his 12th birthday he recieved a skateboard and a turntable and it forever changed his world. Kovas began to write raps and music, inspired by the places, people and cultures he interacted with.Kovas' father came to America for a better life, so Kovas was no stranger to adjusting to new ideas.
Soon his new friends introduced him to new sounds, new records, new ideas that weren't familiar in his Brooklyn hood. So he began to pick up instruments and cultivate a sound all his own. Not relying on sampling to create his music, he began to compose soundtracks pulling from his Latin/Morrocaan background, Rock, Soul and Hip Hop influences.
Sometimes playing every instrument on his pieces, Kovas displays the musical proficiency seen in such artist as Dave Grohl, Lenny Kravitz, and Prince. With the diverse production chops of Rick Rubin, The Neptunes, Timbaland, and Dr. Dre. Kovas simultaneously created his own sound and his own genre of music. And he christened it Ghetto Beat. Now experience it for yourself.
