Kasim Keto Releases Single “Rat Race” from Debut Album Long Car Rides

 

New York producer Kasim Keto has released the latest single, “Rat Race,” from his critically-acclaimed debut album Long Car Rides. “Rat Race” is an electronic ode to the daily grind featuring an enticing horn section and a layer of vocals from Kasim himself. As Kasim explains, “my inspiration for the song was seeing the monotonous day-in, day-out way that people live their lives. Everyone thinks they are after the same prize sort of like rats running along each other in an endless maze.”

 

The critical response to Kasim Keto’s debut album, Long Car Rides, has been nothing short of stellar. There was an outpour of praise for Long Car Rides after 2dopeboyz premiered the album’s stream. Fans were then able to hear the album that LeftOverCake described as “a stunning debut" in its entirety. As the co-founder of 2dopeboyz Shake states, “…this is perfect for those late night car rides through town…or even when you’re chilling in the crib dolo…I’m on my third listen and I don’t plan on putting it away any time soon. This is fantastic stuff." CJ from WeTheOpinionated.com raves, “I encourage everyone to listen.” Additionally, Joe Rivers of Clash Magazine exclaims, “Long Car Rides sets the mood well enough to be considered as a great album in its own right. The soundscapes that Keto creates transport you to a more relaxing, far less hectic place.

 

Kasim Keto blends hip-hop and electro into a cohesive musical journey on his debut album Long Car Rides. Long Car Rides serves as a journey through the mind of Kasim Keto, as he takes listeners on a road trip of sonic delectation that they will not soon forget.

 

Kasim Keto’s debut album, Long Car Rides, is in stores now via Babygrande Records.

Born in Brooklyn and raised by two Jamaican immigrant parents, Kasim Keto finds his influences in a wide range of places and experiences. Having moved from New York, to Alabama, to Florida and then back to New York within the span of two years as an adolescent, Kasim found sanctity in a diverse array of musical styles, which is today reflected in his eclectic blend of production.

Kasim began writing music at the age of 8 and it would go onto become a life-altering experience. At 16 years-old, Kasim began cutting school and, unlike his peers, his days were not spent in relaxation but rather, working through the ranks of various studios to learn pro audio gear in an effort to hone his talent as a producer. As Kasim explains, “working on several local projects and trying to gain notoriety became a facilitator of my musical talents.” After releasing numerous online projects to critical acclaim, Kasim is ready to show the world why he is in a lane of his own. As popular local blog BrooklynBullshit states, “keep an eye out" for Kasim Keto. With an unmatched drive, Kasim blends hip-hop and electro into a cohesive musical journey on his debut album Long Car Rides.
