This band has no press




Kiture is a fully self-created vocalist, producer and engineer. Born and raised in New York City, he started recording rap verses when he was only 13, on a school-loaned Mac desktop and a Logitech headset. He started creating beats using Propellerheads' Reason, using the NN-XT sampler to load his verses onto his beats. He burned and released his first mixtape when he was 15, and sold it to his fellow classmates at $5 a disc.
Since then, Kiture learned a variety of different DAWs, from Ableton, to Fruity Loops, and Pro Tools, before finally settling on Logic Pro. Having sung a capella since high school, he honed his singing skills by recording on his own productions and learning every vocal and engineering trick in the book. He worked closely with Fat Joe protegé Kingston Haughton, helping him release a series of mixtapes and develop a style.
After providing many artists with clean mixes and instrumentals, Kiture decided to embark on his own journey once again, releasing his first album "Gold Sheen" to all major platforms in May 2018. Additionally, he produced, edited, and director his first music video for the single "Can't Stand Me", in collaboration with his friend Teimon Phillips. He gained even more respect from his peers and fellow indie artists, and recorded and produced with even more fervor that summer. He plans to release those recordings on his upcoming second album Spring 2019, titled "HelioTrope".

Since relocating to New Jersey in Fall 2018, Kiture continues to work with South Korean DJ/Producers Macrohard & West1ne, and will release a third album consisting of his vocals and their productions Fall 2019. As well, he is mentoring a young Newark-based artist by the name of Vigilante by helping him release a single, and fully engineering his upcoming album, with over half of the producer credits.
Kiture has always been hardworking and patient, and does not plan to lose that attitude any time soon.
