K.H.A. is a Swiss/Filipino rapper from Lausanne, Switzerland. He is best known for the single “Money, Money, Money” (prod. by DJ Oddrock) from his debut album “Lost in Time” released in 2008 on orformOrnorm records, Lausanne-based hip-hop label headed by long-time collaborator and friend, Skile. Since then, K.H.A. has released one solo EP (2012’s “Director’s Cut” entirely produced by DJ Aydree) and joined Lausanne-based funk group, Less is Groove (also known as L.I.G. on later releases), alongside US-born Soul singer Faye.
With K.H.A., Less is Groove released their debut album “Crash” in 2010 followed by “Crossroads EP” in 2012 and the bands’ final release, “The Ride EP”, in 2013 before disbanding. During their time together, Less is Groove performed on various stages and venues in Switzerland and France such as the Caprice Festival, La Coupole in Bienne and many other stages from Geneva to Baden passing by Nyon and Lausanne.
After the split, K.H.A., who was going through personal turmoil at the time, needed a break to evaluate his possibilities and decide if he wanted to continue or not. After months of uncertainty, he decided to document his journey on a new 7-track EP entirely produced by Lausanne beatmaker Rize (Orjazzm, Element 11) called “From Nightmares to Dreams”.
The project, recorded and mixed by Skile and mastered by frequent collaborator Greg Dubuis (Studio du Flon), describes his journey from self-doubt to redemption, acceptance and happiness.
On stage, K.H.A. is known for his energetic performances and showmanship drawing in all types of crowds, from hip-hop fans to casual listeners, old and young.
K.H.A. is currently working on new projects with close friends, Skile and DJ Tone-Cee.
