Earlier this year, KAS released a record titled “Arizona,” but has since pulled back on new releases. That trend began to change earlier this month with his feature on Squire’s track “Daydream.” Last week, he popped back up with a self produced record dubbed, “Nirvana;” which sees a feature from songstress Joz. KAS has a way with vibes and Joz’ vocals help to add texture throughout the entire song. The kid has really grown into himself as an artist and looks like one of the more versatile up and comers. Another solid record from KAS, don’t be surprised if you hear this one on the radio. Check out “Nirvana” above and make sure to stay tuned for more from KAS.
The kid KAS has been low key as of late, but that all changed today with the release of a new track titled “Arizona.” The budding southside artist is known for his smooth, tropical sound and “Arizona” fits that mold to a T. Produced by the man himself, this record once again shows off KAS’ duel threat ability, which might be turning into a triple threat if he continues to produce like this. Right on time for the sunny days ahead, “Arizona” should get plenty of air-time in the coming months, check out the song above and keep an eye out for more from KAS.
A while back the homie KAS released a new track via Soundcloud dubbed “Goals.” An artist who continues to show off his vast skill set, KAS is clearly finding his footing. The production on “Goals” is hypnotic to say the least, KAS does a good job of utilizing each breakdown providing a medley of flows. If this is what he has had up his sleeve we can’t wait to hear more. One of his best yet, check out “Goals” for yourself above and make sure to keep an eye out for more from KAS.

Next Sunday, the Kitty Cat Klub is looking like the place to be. Chicago’s own Vagabond Maurice & Sage The 64th Wonder will be in town for what should be a great performance. They’ll be joined by local favorites Devata Daun, Nick Jordan, and KAS; wrapping up a solid lineup. Rolling Rock will be sponsoring the event so come thirsty, this one is 21+ and FREE; click the link below for more information.
We at MADE love to support creativity when ever we see it. The homie KAS has been on the come up for quite some time now, it’s no wonder he’s becoming one of the cities most promising young artists. With summer in full gear, KAS links up with Lord Fubu to bring us “Fiji.” The record breathes summer vibes, the synths creating a vibrant hook for KAS to fall into. A track that you could easily bump at a BBQ or a house party, “Fiji” stands out. The kid’s really finding his footing behind the mic, don’t be surprised when you see a lot more from him in the near future. Check out “Fiji” for yourself below and be stay tuned for more.
This past Thursday night, we at MADE held our very first event at 7th St Entry. First off, thanks to all the artists and everyone else that came out to help support the event – without you, this wouldn’t be possible.
The night featured a handful of artists that we have grown close to over the last two years, including: Finding Novyon, Drelli, RP Hooks, Travis Gorman, Rich Garvey, Frank Castle, DJ Low, Alibaster Jones & more. With a near sold out event, we anticipate bringing you another dope night of music in the near future. As the world turns and we move towards another week in Minneapolis, MADE will continue to bring you recaps of featured local artists. Meanwhile, flip through some pics and stay tuned for more to come!

Next week, our 1st event is set to go down at First Avenue’s 7th Street Entry. Dubbed “La Familia,” the event will showcase our fam, some of which we’ve grown with, others who we’ve recently met, and some who are simply the homies. The night will feature performances from Finding Novyon, RP Hooks, Drelli, and Alibaster Jones; as well as DJ sets from Travis Gorman, DJ Low, and DJ Frank Castle. The homie Rich Garvey will host the night and we’ve got a few special guests in store too. This one is 18+ and tickets are $5 in advance ($8 @ door), click the link below to RSVP and for tickets.
Minneapolis’ DIY scene took a big hit earlier this year when the Sound Gallery (studio) closed down, but the void was quickly filled by a whole cast of other locations. Among the many, The Creek has thrown a couple of notable events in the past few weeks, one being last Saturday’s event with 612Collection. Alibastor Jones’ opening set laid the groundwork for what would end up being a great time. The night also featured performances from Lucien Parker, Nazeem & Spencer Joles, Mike The Martyr, KAS, and Drelli among others. A good event to cap off 2015, if you happened to miss out we’ve got you covered with some pics above.
The South side of Minneapolis has always had a rich hip hop culture including artists like Atmosphere, Eyedea, P.O.S, and more recent mainstays (by comparison) like Greg Grease & Metasota. Known for it’s lyrical prowess and social commentary, the South side has long been underrated in it’s efforts to legitimize Minneapolis as a true hot bed for dope hip hop. This ongoing struggle may be coming to an end sooner than we think, as 2016 looms ahead there is a whole cast of young up and comers who are ready to inject more diversity into the South side’s ever growing landscape. At 21 KAS is one of those artists, a triple threat of sorts; the kid produces, raps/writes, and sings. Over the last 6 months or so KAS has quickly amassed a following with a steady stream of dope singles on his soundcloud. After absolutely shutting down the Red Sea & Weird High 2 (same night) last weekend, it is now clear that he’s someone to keep an eye on. On our radar no doubt, check out a few of his tracks below and stay tuned for more.
Location: 9451 Excelsior Blvd, Hopkins (MN)
When: Saturday, November 14th @ 7PM
This weekend is looking surprisingly lax as opposed to the past few weeks, but the Depot Coffee House in Hopkins might be the place to go on Saturday night. Sushi Saturday will feature a wide variety of talented youth including Drelli, LUX, KAS, Freeminds, and Max Taylor among others. A solid lineup of artists that you might be seeing a lot more of sooner than you think, this event is all ages and the door is only $5; not bad if you’re willing to make the drive.
