Music Career

Ashin began recording his debut album and subsequent “Body EP” at his home in Brooklyn. Ashin’s “Body” album was never heard until he performed it once in 2016. He wrote the “Body EP” and “Anxiety” between the winter of 2011-2012. He self-produced the “Anxiety” album all by himself at home.

Ashin titled the “Anxiety” album “kingofpop.” It was a self-deprecating reference to the legendary Michael Jackson. However, Ford & Lopatin contributed to the album’s recording at a studio. The “Anxiety” album gained favorable reviews from critics and received praise from fans. The “Anxiety” album also spawned the singles “Play By Play” and “Counting.”

In July 2013, as part of the Adult Swim Summer Singles series, he released the song “On And On.” In 2015, Andre Ne Veut released another album titled “Age Of Transparency.” The album featured the song “On And On (Reprise),” which was the first track on the project. It featured nine tracks, including the title track. The album equally gained favorable reviews. The “Age Of Transparency Vol. II: The Avatar Sessions” was later released. It featured eleven tracks. That, too, was well-received by his fans.
