friendkerrek is a beatmaker based in New Orleans, Louisiana. He draws inspiration from many genres and artists from Knxwledge to My Bloody Valentine.
Trademarks of a classic friendkerrek beat include melodic sample chops, smacking drums, and plenty of effects from the Roland SP series of samplers. His works invoke strong emotions , often without the need for vocals. They are smooth, sexy, and in the words of one internet comment, "just make me want to water my plants and do my best in life."
