AML 085: (Exclusive) Introducing Joakim Karud, AML’s rising super producer to watch!

Joakim Karud is a multifaceted and talented music producer from Sweden best known through YouTube, where his music has been featured in approximately 100,000 videos. His sound recordings have been used by famous Vloggers such as Casey Neistat, Tanner Fox, and Sawyer Hartman, who have a combined total of over 10million subscribers and billions of views.

Karud’s foray into music began as a child playing piano. By 13 he knew he wanted music as a career and was already producing hip-hop beats. As an adult, he produced and collaborated with diverse artists and producers all in diverse genres (rock, pop and EDM), all in an effort to break into the mainstream Swedish music market. Unfortunately, his efforts yielded no true success and by the end of 2015, he was ready to call it quits.

Nevertheless and with nothing to lose, he decided to create and upload an eclectic blend of all of his influences (60’s soul, 90’s west coast hip-hop, EDM of the 00’s and everything in between), each week, on Soundcloud. His focus was to create sounds that made people feel happy, lacked boundaries and reflected his free spirited nature. This decision changed his life. Almost immediately, people began asking for permission to use his music on You Tube. Today, Karud’s music can be heard in over 300-400 new You Tube videos, daily.

Karud doesn’t take this for granted. He continues to deliver quality music for You Tube and his listeners on Soundcloud while working with artists and producers. His latest body of work is his recently released EP titled ‘Loudness & Clarity.’
