Nous'klaer presents the first single of Kems Kriol' "Equanimity" debut EP: Pirogue Clandestine (featuring Wantee Teelapa). A first of three masterful downtempo tracks by the 42 y/o producer from Rotterdam. Artwork courtesy of Denis Faneites.

Kems Kriol gives insight into the internal battles one wages when coming of age during the tough nineties in Rotterdam. During that time, Rotterdam was a cold and tough transit port city with no room for emotions. Perhaps due to this intense blue-collar climate the electronic music scene blossomed. Clubs were the place where people from every background would come together for a release.

For Kriol, the streets, the coffeeshops and the nightlife were a place to find refuge from the daily struggles that marked his upbringing.

With the birth of his two sons in the early 2000’s Camilo realised that not everything had to be tough and negative. This new perspective on life started his search for spirituality and motivated him to dig deeper into his roots. This journey eventually led to him finding peace-of-mind in the city and formed a new phase in his musical career.

In the following years, Camilo emerged as a producer, played in various bands as a percussionist and preformed at festivals like Lowlands, North Sea Jazz Festival and Pinkpop. He devoted a part of his time to teaching young aspiring musicians from the neighbourhood he grew up in.

2021 marks a new path for Kems as a producer and recording artist. In August he will release his solo debut as Kems Kriol on the Rotterdam based label Nous’klaer Audio; Equanimity EP.

Equanimity EP is the story of finding inner peace in an undesirable situation. Finding the power to overcome the bad and turn it into good. Creating a microcosm of tranquility and from there, expand to a life of serenity.
