From the moment you hear Kasino you get hit with seductive beats, and uncompromising street lyrics that dig deep into his soul and flow out with biting rhymes and thumping sexuality. Whether he’s performing in front of a thousand fans at club Melodia or his current record arena audience of over 18,000 at Mohican Sun, Kasino’s lyrics and beats makes the room hotter and the ground rumble. He has been featured on the Spanish broadcast network Telemundo Channel as well as New York City’s television news magazine, “The Spot NYC”. Kasino’s love of music was influenced by his Mother and Father’s Puerto Rican heritage. His parents separated when he was seven years old leaving his mother to raise his sister and him on her own. Much of his childhood was spent hanging out on the streets in the NYC area listening to hip-hop with kids that were much older than he was. “I got in a lot of trouble those days” says Kasino “but hangin’ with those guys is what made me fall in love with music like I did.” While mastering his freestyling skills with street friends and in Safia’s at school, Kasino was introduced and absorbed into a love of Latin underground music that eventually developed into today’s Reggaeton music. Combining these two genres, Kasino eventually found his sound in the studio as part of the Reggaeton duo La Union. In Kasino’s music experience, he was managed by Wille Estrada (CEO of Latin Empire Entertainment) and represented by booking agent Juan Toro(CEO Relentless Agency - Wisin y Yandel, Daddy Yankee). He has performed with Don Omar and Hector El Father and has had tracks produced by A&X (Danza Kuduro) and mixed by D menace (Ceila Cruz, Thalia). At one point, Kasino considered stepping out of the music industry. After spending about a year with music on the shelf he received some advice from his closest friend. “He sat me down and gave me a heart to heart” Kasino explains, “she said to me you have a gift that not everyone is born with and when you waste it, you disrespect that gift and the people that love you.” Stunned and inspired, Kasino put his heart and soul back into writing and performing and the outcome was an amazing composition of his Hip-Hop inspirations with songs such as After Party, Ahmen, and Aina Thang . Kasino’s latest mixtape, Rated Gangsta has just been released and is getting known. His next endeavor, The Truth Be Told, will be out later this year, focusing on the deepest truths that he has uncovered in his own experience about life.
