Preston Klik Feat. ARI URBAN
Chicago-based artist-producer Preston Klik uses the recording studio as his main musical instrument. His eclectic sonic palette (well supported by his eclectic musician-friends), along with his intention to bring beauty and positivity to the world, gives his tracks a unique emotional feel and depth. In his other role, Preston has led over one thousand group sound meditations; that profound connection to sound & silence informs the quality of his music compositions. Because he's a self-taught musician-producer, Preston steps beyond the limitations of genre, presenting unique and personal sonic-visions, meant to up-lift.
