Chicago born and raised Lasko describes himself as a controllerist. The term is apt in these modern times. There are many mediums for beat making but the midi-controller is now one of the most popular. Even though Lasko only 18 years old, he’s showing us that this form can have amazing results.
When I found Lasko’s music, I couldn’t find out much about him beyond some scattered social media accounts, so I simply sent him a message asking who he is. The response I got tells me everything I need to know about the future of hip hop infused with jazz, soul and funk.
