"Making music is about having an impact," exclaims Carnage.

It's easy to feel the impact on every track the Los Angeles-based artist puts out. With a versatile mindset and deft approach, he siphons electro, hip hop, pop, and trap into an intoxicating brew unlike anything out there. It's dirty, defiant, and diverse.

There's nothing quite like seeing Carnage live. Every show explodes based off his hyperkinetic energy and formidable presence. He's rocked stages at Electric Daisy Carnival, Coachella, Tomorrowland, TomorrowWorld, Life in Color and many more.

His first studio release came in 2015 with Ultra Records and was immediately the #1 Dance Album in the country, with countless huge records and massive features with everyone from Rick Ross and Migos to KSHMR.

His best show came in 2016 where he performed on the Ultra Mainstage in Miami, and shocked the crowd time and time again as he brought out Hip Hop heavyweights, DJ Khaled, Rae Sremmurd, Wiz Khalifa and Rick Ross.

"I'm a big black guy who loves to rage," he chuckles. "I'm not what you expect. I feed off the crowd and go for it."

That's why Carnage's impact will be felt for a long time to come.
