Aaron studied at the College of the Canyons in Santa Clarita, California in 2000 with a focus on creative writing, music technology, and music business. However, his college education was cut short in 2002, when Aaron was in a near fatal car accident that landed him in jail. While Aaron awaited the decision of his release, he prayed and promised to pursue his art if given the chance. A few weeks later, all charges were dropped and he was released with a newfound perspective. Aaron now dedicates his life to art and creativity.

Kevin Flores is a recording engineer, hip-hop producer, writer and father. He is the son of immigrant parents from Ecuador and was born in East Los Angeles, CA. His love and gift of music took him on a journey through the music industry where he worked with many artists. Kevin produces music under the moniker, Kev Da Khemist. He currently runs his own recording studio in Alhambra, CA.

 

In 2005 while attending Musicians Institute, an acquaintance introduced Kevin to fellow co-writer of “Love Hertz”, Aaron Mostow. They soon began working on music together and have been great friends ever since. Years later, Kevin met co-writer Rodolfo Tagle III through Aaron. 

 

Kevin’s love of writing goes back to childhood where he wrote scripts in class. “In the fifth grade I wrote a script about extraterrestrials and a group of kids who try to escape from being abducted. I casted classmates and even began making a list of all the equipment I would need. My teacher, Mr. Toth, saw what I was up to and brought an old Hollywood movie script to class so I could see what it looked like for inspiration. The project never came to fruition, but writing “Love Hertz” feels like I’m one step closer to fulfilling my childhood dream of making a movie.”

When Kevin isn’t busy making music or writing, he enjoys watching stand-up comedy from comedians that include Felipe Esparza, Dave Chapelle, Louis CK & Aziz Ansari.
