From the Heart
“Audio production is a form of active meditation for me; a way to center my mind and cultivate creativity. The music that is channeled reflects the state of alert calmness that one receives from practicing presence.
As my experience and knowledge of sound, vibration, energy and life deepens; so my music develops as well. I am constantly learning more about frequencies, vibration, intentional tone, etc. and how they interact and affect our bodies and minds, weaving these ideas into the audio production.”

Our Lyricist & MC: YashAkasha
YashAkasha has been performing poetry on stage and rhyming with a passion since his earliest childhood memories. Soon after his first homemade music video quickly gained thousands of individual views on YouTube, his song for Standing Rock was selected as a finalist for a Hip Hop competition by Talib Kweli and Xiuhtezcatl Martinez. He then went on to release his first album, Rapture (2017), which was recorded on zero budget in a friend’s garage and is now available through several online platforms. The Rapture album was well-received, including press coverage in Delumin/a online journal, which is also responsible for album reviews of Matisyahu. YashAkasha is also about to release his second album, Renaissance, a next-level collaboration by Original Currency.
