K-FaZa Beats is a name that we post our music under. It is named after our 3 children, Kayonee, FAtafehi, & EliZA. In regards to K-FaZa’s music background, well we started making Hip Hop beats, we then went onto other genres of urban music and now we are composing small orchestral, symphony pieces. All of the music is composed and produced by Edwin Hazelman. In regards to Edwin’s music background, here is what he has said,
“I have not taken any kind of courses nor have gone to school for music theory. Everything that I know about making music has been mostly self-taught. At the most, in regards to education, I have taken band class in high school and remember the basics, although I did learn multiple instruments while being in High School band. Going further back going to my roots of music, it would start with my Father who was in a band and still plays in a band playing mainly South Pacific songs. My Father, Uncles and friends of the family would drink a traditional drink that we call grog or kava, while drinking grog they would play guitars and ukuleles and sing Fijian folk songs. My Aunties would also play their music while working throughout the house, crazy Funk & R&B. Then my sisters would continue on bringing in the latest R&B & Hip Hop songs. I then took this and became a DJ at the age of 14. I DJ'd alot from house parties to clubs and for Hip Hop artists.This then brings me to the present time, where my Wife and our three kids heavily inspire the music that I create and produce now. All of these things influenced me growing up and I would consider this to be my foundation in my music background.”
As for K-FaZa Beats, it has been around for a few years now. Our work background and training has been with computers, the IT industry and customer service. So we thought, what a crazy way to make a living, by combining something that we love doing and creating, with something that we do on a professional basis. Thus K-FaZaBeats.com was born. In the beginning we were preparing K-FaZa to be a home based business and we succeeded to do so. K-FaZabeats.com was doing really well with online marketing & social networking and for the first few months we were making a good amount of money per month. Unfortunately due to personal issues, we could not run K-FaZaBeats.com and continued with our day jobs. Priorities had to be set and met, with K-FaZaBeats.com still being in its experimental phases, we had to drop K-FaZabeats.com from the priorities list and set it aside. Now over a year later, we have slowly put K-FaZa Beats back together.
Right now K-FaZa is in a hobby phase, it is something that we can use to practice our skills that we have learned throughout our life and also to retain the knowledge oft what we have learned. K-FaZa will combine all of our skills, from computer maintenance and customer relations to music compositions & production. Everything that you see on K-FaZa has been done or will be done andcreated by K-FaZa. It will be interesting to see how K-FaZa will grow and turn out. Right now there is no direction or course of action set for K-FaZa, we are just taking it one day at a time, one step at a time and on a steady course.
We invite you to take this journey with us, to watch how K-FaZa will grow. Follow K-FaZa and let see were this will take us.
