Chicago native, Austin O’Meara (Kinetik Groove) has been creating funky beats at his finger tips for years. He recently signed to Philos Records, where he released the EP “Only Time Can Tell” for free on Soundcloud. He’s currently residing in California where he will be playing his first music festivals this upcoming summer. The album is a perfect mix of songs to get funky and dance to, as well as relax with on a long car ride. His Soundcloud holds an abundance of original tracks, as well as a remix of Thrift Shop by Macklemore, which racked in thousands of Youtube views in a short amount of time. Many tracks hold traces of sounds similar to artists like Gramatik, but he holds his own with his own unique groovy beats. Kinetik Groove is a small, but upcoming name to look for in the next few years. Download the EP for free and check him out at Paradise Music & Arts Festival and at SXSW in Austin, TX this weekend as well!
