Kashif passed away almost a month ago. The American multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, record producer and composer from New York City has been a rare influence on today's music. He has worked with Whitney Houston, Evelyn "Champagne" King, George Benson and many others.
One of Amsterdam's local heroes Elias Mazian pays tribute.
Elias Mazian: “Here's a selection of music sung, produced and written by the late Kashif. A man that in his heydays (the early 80s) made some of the finest electronic soul you will ever hear. His use of synthesizers and drumcomputers was that of a pioneer and all these years later he still inspires me when I'm in the studio searching for those breathtaking harmonies and melodies. Thank you sir.”
