“THE MOUNTAIN MAN”
Kraven had started creating productions back in 2001. He has produced for several emcees on his label and several others who are simply affiliated. Kraven has been quoted as saying: “I have been doing this a long time now, when people ask me for a beat I just ask there style. I’ve been making beats for 8 years, I have thousands of beats sitting in my arsenal”. Kraven has also released several full length instrumental albums under his label Goldminded Records. In 2008 Klive had released a series of instrumental albums titled “From the Vault” which featured 15 instrumentals on each album and a total of eight albums were released in the series a total of 120 instrumentals. In 2009, Klive purchased most of his current studio equipment and began a production advertising campaign which netted him a production deal and got him signed to Anno Domini Records, a production dream team of 7 highly talented producers.
In 2010 he produced several tracks for established artists such as: Mr. Hyde, Sean Strange, Copywrite, Goretex. Also in 2010 Klive released an instrumental album titled “Menacing Masterpieces” which was a series of horror based instrumentals. Finally, in 2012 he is hard at work on several releases for highly anticipated albums from not only artists on his own label but as a producer for several other heavyweights in the industry as well. It seems that 2012 and beyond holds a bright future for the upcoming emcee/producer.
