Kyle Asche is a professional jazz guitarist, husband, educator, and father. In his free time, he goes beat hunting. Armed with his MPC, he meticulously breaks down musical hooks and creates something original and fresh.

On an average day, he hustles back and forth to elementary schools, colleges, and gigs. When he can get a free late night to himself, he grabs a Pils or a Pale, and settles into an unfinished corner of his basement. From there, he takes a bizarre ride through his sizable record collection in an attempt to find another singular piece of inspiration.
