Kontrolled Khaos Drops, “Take Me as I Am”

by The Alchemist

Kontrolled Khaos is a garage-soul band from Washington D.C. that creates truly astounding tunes. A stylistically unique Band from day one, the members of The Kontrolled Khaos Band have been singing, performing, and playing in sync as if they’d been together their entire musical careers. Throughout the course of the band’s union, they have won the hearts of music lovers from all walks of life; performing at a variety of venues, making loads of public appearances, all the while recording new music.

Their newest track is called, “Take Me as I Am” and it is the hit single from their debut album ‘Let Love.’ This upbeat, jazzy Neo-soul/Hip-hop record features a spirited groove and inspiring musicianship that transforms the native genre called Go-Go. This record was made to touch people of all ages and backgrounds. The message in the song is about acceptance and accountability which is something the world needs a lot more of right now!


As we listened to the song, the entire room started rocking back and forth to the beat, and there was a groovy feeling all around. We can see the Go-Go roots throughout the song, specifically in the hook. This song could be great for anyone who is also a fan of DC Rapper Wale, or any D.C. music fan. Check it out below.

Flow-bending artist aSanTIS discusses art, culture, and whether sound can solve the world’s problems in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.
My interview with Amy Santis aka aSanTIS began in the most unexpected way. The Maryland-based flow-bending artist and lyrical storyteller came prepared to engage in conversation around questions I had posed – and she also brought one or two of her own thoughtful prompts based on her curiosities around my view of learning.

This practice of taking in her surroundings deeply through observation and inquiry has come naturally to aSanTIS ever since she was a young child. In terms of her early starts in music, she notes that she began as a discerning listener. “Just listening to music from my mom, on the radio, just being a consumer in the world of sound. But I think mainly, my mom has always loved dancing and listening to music, so that was sort of like second nature. We play music at gatherings, we play music in the car, and these songs are sort of like diaries that take us into a specific place.”
