Born into a mixture of musical influence and street affiliation, Kemist, 8th ElemEnt. Entertainment Head of Production seemed destined from the start to lead one of the two lifestyles. Unfortunate events during his formative years coupled with fatherhood at a young age not only steered him away from negative paths, but also inspired the desire to create music in the memory of those loved and lost.
Forever a student of music, Kemist began playing drums and piano while still in elementary school and joined his first organized music group while in 7th grade. It wasn't long after that ventures into Hip-Hop production ensued. By the age of 14, he was producing beats for area artists out of the legendary Denver Hip-Hop shop, "The Spot". The perpetual dream to create his own music became more and more a reality as time went on. Schoolmates and eventual life-long friends gained increasing interest and in the late 90's, "Illfuzionz" was born, the predecessor to the current crew.
Quite possibly the most appropriately named producer in the game, Kemist beats are more often compared to symphonies or science projects than conventional instrumentals. Unrivaled complexity and selectivity are key components of what make up his style and and unabated dedication to quality is the basis behind 8th ElemEnt.'s entire approach to music.
