Deemed as one of the most eloquent acts in Canada, High Klassified has been considered a vanguard of the producing field.
Emerging from Laval Quebec, just north of Montreal, this proud Haitian-Canadian whiz first cut his teeth as a producer for his brother’s rap crew. His extensive love for music, ranging from rap to video game instrumentals, has helped him forge the basis of his unique experimental sound. As he first loomed onto the scene in 2010, High Klassified mingled with the emerging Montreal ‘’Piu-Piu’’ movement, while being a notable member of popular ALAIZ collective — which also included upcoming artists Kaytranada & Da-P. In 2012, his music caught the attention of fellow Montrealer and DJ/Producer A-Trak, who offered him a spot on his Fool’s Gold Records imprint. He has since released 2x critically acclaimed solo projects: Palindroma (2014) and Kronostasis (2016). Not to mention his noticeable collaborations with Metro Boomin’, Future, Lex Luger, Mic Jenkins, Joke, and R&B sensation — The Weeknd. His transcending musical moniker, and bona fide charisma has helped him score endorsements from the likes of Adidas, Red Bull, and Axe — among others. Yet, as a prominent fashion aficionado and beloved ambassador of the vogue, High Klassified has partnered with many local brands such as 3Paradis, New Regime, and must recently, Off The Hook, who helped him launch his own line of urban clothing, ’’Laval Ou Rien’’ — named after his endearing love for his neighbourhood.
