You know KEMIT from his work with Cooly’s Hot-Box, led by Angela Johnson and John-Christian Urich (now with Tortured Soul), and Laurnea of Loose Ends fame – artists who represent the beginning of what we call Neo-Soul.
While music lovers were taking note of groups like the Brand New Heavies and Incognito, KEMIT had a hand in one of Cooly’s most memorable cuts — “Wasted Time” from the group’s Take It album. It was recently re-released on Cooly’s Choice Cuts compilation. For Laurnea, KEMIT produced “Just A Little,” “Sun Don’t Rain” and “Betta Listen.”
In all, KEMIT’S work as a producer has established him as an artist who combines the best parts of the music he spins to create a unique sound that is as refined and authoritative as the man himself.
KEMIT is instrumental in guiding the house, soul and hip-hop scenes in Atlanta – and beyond. It’s an important task given the city’s influence on American music everywhere. When people look to Atlanta, they have to look to KEMIT – and based on his superlative body of work, past and future, things are looking good.
