Koss | Interview
Koss is a Hip Hop DJ and producer from Liège, Belgium. His inspiration comes from music genres including Soul, Funk, Hip Hop, Jazz, and Rock. Koss was first exposed to Hip Hop from the influences in blockbuster films such as Ghostbusters and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Later, he became familiar with Run-DMC and Gang Starr, which fueled his desire to purchase turntables and begin record shopping.
After years of producing and attending Hip Hop shows in Belgium to see some of his favorite American Hip Hop artists, Koss describes how he quickly connected with some of his heroes. In this video interview, he speaks about conversations of producing for Hip Hop legends and the conflicting thoughts in his head about preparedness to make the best records possible. Koss followed through with confidence and released several projects with artists including The Legacy with Craig G (2012), We Want More with El Da Sensei (2013), and Natural High with A.G. (2014).
In 2017, Koss released his compilation album Born To Live which features an all-star lineup of legendary emcees including Marley Marl, Masta Ace, Large Professor, Craig G, Torae, Blaq Poet, J-Live, Keith Murray, Ruste Juxx, and K-Def.
