Stylistically, ash.ØK isn’t easily pigeonholed into a specific genre because he integrates a vast array of styles into a unique sound that is his and his alone ... he decorates his musical artworks with an indelible style. - Randy Radic, Huffington Post.

A highly emotional and often dark exploration of dissolution, disconnect and deterioration, ash.ØK’s record offers a provocative story, blending hip-hop, trap and electronica influences to create an ambient bed that is tense, despite its mellow texture. - Mitch Mosk, Atwood Magazine.

There are few forces in popular music quite as formidable as a great producer on a mission. A skillful producer at the helm of a musical project guarantees consistency, vision, and a distinct aural signature that can’t be counterfeited ... ash.ØK is a producer like that. - RJ Fromenta, VENTS Magazine.

Philadelphia producer / songwriter ash.ØK weaves disparate threads of genre — electronica, trap, hip-hop, folk, blues, and ambient — into a fine tapestry of sonic innovation.  


Straddling cultures as a first-generation Indian American, ash.ØK was as influenced by gritty boom bap of artists like Nas, Pharcyde, and Notorious B.I.G. as by the ancient music of his parent’s Indian Catholic heritage.  The incongruity of continental divide and generations is what forges ash.ØK’s distinct sound, merging traditional Eastern themes and chord progressions with rich urban compositions of layered complexity.


His latest album, The Unraveled, examines themes of melancholia and the dissolution of love within intimate relationships. Through the use of opposing perspectives, ash.ØK embraces polarized storytelling as relationships shatter, deteriorating from internal conflicts of the individual and their character. This theme is brought home in deftly crafted, artfully arranged, and lushly layered textiles of sound.


The Unraveled begets critical mass in its fusion of disparate genres with orchestral and urban instrumentation, haunting vocals, and synth production. The album, which ash.ØK produced over a period of two years, features collaborations with artists including Tina Guo (Ellie Goulding, John Legend, Hans Zimmer), Kid Moxie, Anna Yvette (Machine Gun Kelly, MiTiS,  Rootkit), Chrysanthe Tan (Ariana Grande, Alicia Keys, Justin Beiber), and Kaly (A.R. Rahman, Rianjali, Raxstar) among many others.


The album was engineered by Grammy-winning Jeff Chestak (Kanye West, Linkin Park, Justin Timberlake) and Ryan Schwabe (King Britt, Baauer, RJD2) & can be purchased on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Spotify, Bandcamp and all other major outlets.
