The name is Lewis, but I’d rather you call me by my stage name “Koosey”. Music has been a part of me for the longest time, even way before I started using recording equipment or even writing. The majority of my nearest family (other than the one and only J.Otis) had no knowledge about music other than listening to it, I changed that, I hope mine and the other “67 records” members’ actions inspire the future to pursue music and carry it on. I look forward to my future and can’t wait to see the new faces and places I come across on my journey, most importantly to me cause I’m petty as hell… to prove the doubters wrong. Cause **** em!

Moyan Kuhne a Beatmaker from Germany, Cologne, and I’ve been making beats for about 1 and a half years now. I’m studying Psychology and in my free time, I make beats and play basketball.
Hi there! My name is Finn. I am 19 years old and live in Amsterdam. When working on music my name is: ClovisBeats. I’ve always had a great love for music while growing up. Micheal Jackson and Eminem were childhood heroes of mine (they still are). During school, music was the one and only thing that really kept me going. Teachers, books and future career plans couldn’t bother me at all. About two years ago, a friend introduced me to FL Studio and it grabbed me right away. My inner fire was lit. Every day after school I would jump on my dad’s laptop and began messing around. I played my new beats and my friend gave me tips on how to improve. I couldn’t stop anymore. In 2020 I graduated from high school and took a gap year. And that’s when the pandemic hit. I had a lot of time on my hands so I decided to really take producing seriously. I locked myself in my room, in the world of beats, and began a part-time education on producing. I know this is my world. This is what I love, what I want. The satisfaction I get from making my own beats and songs is like nothing else. It is my way of expression. It gives me energy and fuels me in my daily life. That’s why I’m really grateful to be a part of this project! For the future, I hope we can keep working together, and keep doing what we love. Because what’s better than making a living out of your passion? I wouldn’t know…
