EMCEE / PRODUCER / FILM MAKER / LABEL FOUNDER
Kosyne is an MC / Producer / Host and wannabe DJ (at times) based around Birmingham UK,
he came up sharpening his skills on the open mic circuit with longtime rap partners
SONNYJIM and REDBEARD and also hosting regular events from the one time hiphop collective
SOULTHUMP, through to a 2 season stint of Nu Century Art's LIVEBOX (alongside the legendary SOWETO KINCH)
and also helped control many a packed zoo open mic at SPEAKERS CORNER (which became the outlet for EOW UK).
Rap wise Kos made his production and vocal debut on the SONNYJIM track "BARCODES"
from the SOULTRADER EP and shortly after PERCY FILTH's debut "DONT TAKE IT PERCYNAL" both of which
were recorded by producer/emcee LOTEK, after learning the ropes through Tek and bagging his gear at a discount price
before he left for Austrialia, Kos & Sonny ran their own lab and recorded many of the features
and tracks that appeared during the pre-EATGOOD era of 2006 to 2007 before moving to their own space
which was eventually dubbed "LOUIS DEN" (after being in close proximity to where SJ's dog "LOUIS" lived).
During the TRADING STANDARDS sessions Kos met KELAKOVSKI and the pair went on to form the LOUIS DEN BEAT BATTLES
movement alongside fellow producers DARREN PAUL (now retired) and EYEBS of TLG which led to the creation
of LOUIS DEN BEAT CYPHER which is the innovative hiphop production based club night showcasing producers from the Louis Den network
and those from further afield.
Music aside Kos is also co-creator (with filmaker/producer PROLIFIK aka AB0181) of the BEHIND CLOSED DOORS HIPHOP PRODUCTION MAGAZINE DVD which serves as producer food
for beatsmiths worldwide.
