Philadelphia producer & songwriter ash.ØK weaves disparate threads of genre — dark pop, electronica, trap, hip-hop, folk, blues, and ambient — into a fine tapestry of sonic innovation.  

Straddling cultures as a first-generation Indian American, ash.ØK was as influenced by gritty boom bap of artists like Nas, Pharcyde, and Notorious B.I.G. as by the ancient music of his parent’s Indian Catholic heritage.  The incongruity of continental divide and generations is what forges ash.ØK’s distinct sound, merging traditional Eastern themes and chord progressions with rich electronica, urban and synthpop compositions of layered complexity.


An established producer and songwriter, ash.ØK has collaborated with Grammy-award winning and indie artists & engineers, including Tina Guo (Ellie Goulding, John Legend, Hans Zimmer), Rianjali (A.R. Rahman, U2, Shawn Mendes), Anna Yvette (Machine Gun Kelly, MiTiS,  Rootkit), Chrysanthe Tan (Ariana Grande, Alicia Keys, Justin Beiber), Jeff Chestek (Kanye West, Linkin Park, Justin Timberlake) and Ryan Schwabe (King Britt, Baauer, RJD2) among many others.  His production style distinctly merges disparate genres with orchestral and urban instrumentation, haunting vocals, and modern synthpop production - all deftly crafted, artfully arranged, and lushly layered textiles of sound.

Stylistically, ash.ØK isn’t easily pigeonholed into a specific genre because he integrates a vast array of styles into a unique sound that is his and his alone ... he decorates his musical artworks with an indelible style. - Randy Radic, Huffington Post.

A highly emotional and often dark exploration of dissolution, disconnect and deterioration, ash.ØK’s record offers a provocative story, blending hip-hop, trap and electronica influences to create an ambient bed that is tense, despite its

mellow texture. - Mitch Mosk, Atwood Magazine.

There are few forces in popular music quite as formidable as a great producer on a mission. A skillful producer at the helm of a musical project guarantees consistency, vision, and a distinct aural signature that can’t be counterfeited ... ash.ØK is a producer like that. - RJ Fromenta, VENTS Magazine.
