KARDIAC – Hip-Hop Meets Horror
Underground New York hip-hop artist KARDIAC wears a lot of hats… He does all of his own artwork and music production, which includes beat production, songwriting, mixing, and mastering. And don’t forget video production, video editing, special effects, film scoring… and horror.
He has been releasing music and beat production since 1998 all the while enhancing his own company, “KARDIAC Music,” with his other talents, such as graphic design and film.
Over the years, KARDIAC has also been involved in several group project album releases of which he published himself. It was in 2011, when he came back strong with his 4th solo album release, “The Afternoon of Extravagant Delight,” as he broadcast his very first professional music video, “The Nest.” That album took a different and out of the ordinary approach from the monotonous style that rap had to offer at the time. KARDIAC has appeared on radio stations in New York, and also performed all over the United States opening for many major artists in the underground industry.
In 2012, KARDIAC began creating his own official videos and commercials. He has since released a few album release promotional commercials. For his December 2013 album, “Sleep Deprivation,” he showcased his first independently produced official music video for the track entitled “It’s Hard to Keep a Secret.”
In 2014, he took a bigger step into the film world to write and produce his own Short Film Music Video, “The County Road Cover Up,” that was inspired by a track off of the album, “Gifts of Blood Two.”
KARDIAC is currently fully engaged in his 6th solo album preparation. No details have been officially released; however, we can say that there will be another official KARDIAC music video to come later this year.
