He grew up in a creative environment surrounded by music and art. As a young child his father would help him “sequence” songs on the keyboard, and by the age of five he had picked up his first instrument. At 15 he had his first copy of beat making software and by 16 he had his first MPC. When he was 17 he moved to Vermont where his passion for making beats continued to grow. In November of 2011 he signed his first track with Cold Busted and the rest, as they say, is history. His innate creativity and salient worth ethic is exemplified through his monthly Spontaneous Grooves series, where each instrumental is created in one sitting – the result being truly “spontaneous” and diverse tracks. Es-K currently manages a tobacco shop, continues to release music through Cold Busted, and works with various artists around the world.

After two years of putting out a total of 34 Jazz fusion compilation albums in tribute to the Jazz greats Millennium Jazz Music now presents the first official album by the Jazz Jousters in celebration of the second anniversary of the collective working together and still going strong.
This month we had an outside suggestion from our brother Alpha Saliou Daimaô of the ‘Le Gros Tas de Zik‘ blog and Radio show in France. During a conversation with Gadget he recommended a challenge for the Jousters to work with the sounds of John Hicks, a Jazz pianist who worked with several big names and even spent some time as a member of Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers.
