Hawaii’s native son Christian Mochizuki, pka graves, is an electronic producer and DJ known for his emotionally sophisticated, and progressive style. Often citing bands like Bring Me The Horizon and the Deftones as inspirations, graves has an uncanny ability to weave in and out of genres.

Also during this period, he earned credits on albums by Kid Cudi, Justin Beiber, Big Sean, and others.
"Like his future funk cohorts, Portland-based producer Yung Bae taps influences that are as varied as they are danceable: disco, funk, R&B and even Japanese “city pop.” These largely sampled grooves — obscure and otherwise — manifest as undeniably vintage sounds presented in gleaming, modern electronic trappings." - All Things Go

The first song KALLITECHNIS ever released was Talk Talk Talk via Soundcloud in November of 2016: a soulful boom bap RnB joint reminiscent of the 90s. At the time, it served as a tester for KALLI to see if her music would resonate well with audiences. Thankfully, it did more than just that. It opened up the doors for opportunity.
She re-surfaced onto the scene in January of 2017 with an 8-bar feature on Lou Phelp's KAYTRANADA-produced track, Average. The song premiered on The Fader and was subsequently picked up by many more publications.
Since both songs had been received really well, KALLI channeled the positive feedback into inspiration for her debut EP [wet paint].
