KODAK TO GRAPH

Kodak to Graph (born Mikey Maleki in 1991) is a Los Angeles-based Iranian-American producer known for his own brand of off-kilter, hip-hop-infused electronic music. His lush, experimental arrangements often incorporate samples of found sounds. Maleki’s earliest memories of music came via his parents: his father, who exposed him to to traditional Persian folk music as well as psychedelic and pop, and his mother, who schooled him in the American singer-songwriter canon. His older brother introduced him to the guitar and drum machine from an early age. Maleki discovered electronic music in high school, cutting his teeth on producers like DJ Shadow, Caribou, Four Tet, Bibio and Quantic. In 2012 he moved to Gainesville where he started producing music in earnest, releasing a string of singles on the Italian label, Bad Panda Records. Other highlights of Maleki’s nascent career include remix work for Doja Cat, Hundred Waters and Salt Cathedral, and tours with Odesza, Gold Panda, Hundred Waters, and Slow Magic. His debut full-length album, ISA, will be released as a free digital download on March 10th 2015 preceding his headlining Break The Ice Tour featuring Big Wild and Obeson as support.
