About

Håås Almahdi was born in '87 in the city of San Diego, California. Having parents from Dominica and Ethiopia/Irish, he started learning both languages early and He then moved to Connecticut in '08, where he still resides.

Heavily influenced by 90’s hip-hop, he was particularly attracted to the music of GangStarr, which constituted the soundtrack of his childhood. After discovering such underground artists on an radio, he started listening to them on a daily basis. He was also inspired by artists like Slum Village, Black Moon, Hieroglyphics and many others, who created laid-back tracks that were pleasant to his ears. From then on, Håås Almahdi hardly ever listened to mainstream music and was influenced by a great number of meaningful and honest underground artists.

Since he was more interested in creating music rather than scratching on it, he grabbed a Roland Fantom X8 and finally made his first beats, entirely composed by him. Having found his true calling, he quickly switched to Logic Pro , which he still uses today.

Trying to define the sound of Håås Almahdi could prove tricky as it doesn't belong to any specific genre and putting the producer in boxes would only be underestimating his talent. One thing is sure though: this sound is very specific and cannot go unnoticed. Håås Almahdi simply creates genuine music that makes you feel good and touches your soul, rather than only your ears.

While they can be very smooth and soulful, his tracks also tend to be strictly hip-hop at times, which shows his versatility and can appeal to a wide range of music lovers. Deep grooves, melodious synthesisers, delicate snares and perfect chord progressions, as well as a profound reaction from within for listeners is what defines that "Håås-sound".
