Real Name:
Touray Holland
Born inner-metro, Brooklyn1979 and transported to the stix outside NYC half a decade later (Spring Valley,NY), KoBAyASHi has creatively crafted the melodic/chaotic sound of his generation since the mid-90s. His influences span from Wonder to Monk to Ayers to Sly to CoFlow to Bjork to Tjader to Puente to Radiohead to Portishead to Primo to Pete Rock. Such an indiscriminate love of music allows KoB to expand the boundaries of HipHop by introducing the lost sounds of the past to his culture..!> Today, having relinquished himself to the music, KoB serves as a relentless faucet that pipes the ancient audio magic revived by his musical forefathers from 12deep black vinyl wells of sound, in hopes that it will Saturate the Space Between Souls and Soil Washed Brains.!. Just listen for the changes...
