KaeoFLUX cut his musical teeth on Martha's Vineyard in the mid nineties, DJing and writing rhymes. With best friend WepOne he formed Komadose while still in high school. When Kaeo moved to Boston in 2001 he joined forced with the Lost Channel crew, and Komadose expanded. A year later they released Komadose – Beta One with help from Ray Archie's Gig City Records.
As a DJ, Kaeo possesses rare versatility. He can spin a two-hour set on the radio or sit in with a band on short notice. A rigorous schedule of performances has imbued his turntable abilities with confidence and improvisational verve. Kaeo devotes most of his time, however, to recorded stereophonic sound. Over a skeleton of meticulously sinister percussion programming, Flux synthesizes instrumentalism and sampling with uncanny poise. While developing his idiosyncratic style, he has shared studio/living space with performers and producers working in various directions, from jazz to post-rock. The resulting essence is difficult to define … but is unquestionably hip-hop.
Before Kaeo moved to Boston he met up with Jud MacRae. After collaborating on tracks for a few months they formed Pilot Balloon , a band which has recently become Flux's primary focus. In fall of 2003 Kaeo teamed up with film director and actor Patrick McMahill and officially launched Komadose Productions , a post production house for audio, video and film.
