Killmaster K, Kmasta, leggie, KilliK (the pallendrome) has been making music for a number of years. Very notable are Killmaster K's mobility, organizational, multitasking and muscially creative concoction capabilities. Originally from Athens, Greece Killmaster K now lives in the Pittsburgh, PA area.
Having moved from Washington D.C. in 1999, some of his influences are Thievery Corporation, Praga Khan, Jade-4U, The Linn Youki Project, Tool, OttoBoy, Elvis, The Seldom Seen, Wanda Jackson and Accept. He is currently working on multiple tracks for his latest album Business Travel & Bums which is playing in deep-down and underground local clubs. Circa 2000-2001, remixes of Killmaster K's material by local DJ Marxus from Washington, PA surfaced in the underground scene.
Killmaster K is known for an unusual personal drive and intensity. Check the track "Cramping up After Ralph." To get the full effect, this must be played only at max volume on a quality sound system. Having grown up in Glyfada, during his teenage years, Killmaster K was constantly exposed to the dance beats of the Mediterranean. Killmaster spent his summers in Porto Heli working in outdoor disco's and experimenting with music of the era. This initial sonic etching of dance oriented sound delivered via powerfully amped speakers made such an impression that still inspires Killmaster K to this day. After meeting with Praga Khan and the Lords of Acid in the late '80's, Killmaster K began creating his own custom sounds using his MC303 and 505 groovebox. Also worth mentioning, while in university, KilliK and N. Boris Shevchenko rocked the house remixing everything from Billy Idol to Petshop Boys.
Today, the primary tools of the trade are his Mac, Korg Electribe and Kaoss Pad. That is unless he's riding his Triumph Thruxton 900 with his rockers... www.steelcityrockers.com.
