Producer/Emcee/Gamer/Hermit. Ayentee was born and raised in Berkeley, CA. Spending a majority of his time working at a grocery store, Ayentee uses what little remaining time he has left in the day listening for samples, writing lyrics, and experimenting with the music creation process. Without diving into a 20 year timeline of details involving his love affair with making music, it probably started in 1985 after seeing a commercial on tv for the Casio SK-1 sampling keyboard. The rest is history.
Any person with any life long passion will tell you, it comes with its fair share of triumphs and heart-break, and Ayentee's passion is no different. Averaging over 3 years of dry spells in between each album release ranging from 1996 til 2012 it becomes apparent to the dedicated listener that Ayentee is running a marathon, not a sprint. While this may alienate the average listener who is used to being bombarded with over exposed flavor of the month artists in order to develope any sense of investment in the music, the Ayentee fan will find it naturally, and thats really the appeal of the music. No money was spent to tell you to like it, you just do.
