Kelman Duran

Kelman Duran is a Dominican producer, composer and visual artist known for his expansive soundscapes and dembow and reggaeton infusions. Emerging as fixture of LA’s underground RAIL UP crew, he has since released through HUNDEBISS Records in Milan, and Riobamba‚Äôs Apocalipsis label. He co-runs both Scorpio Red and an LA based ambient, experimental and avant-garde series focused on BIPOC artists called Deluge. While he sees his music as a purely emotional counterpart to his visual arts and film work, his artistic and scholarly interests focus on issues of racism, police brutality, and the interplay between disenfranchised groups and civil architecture.

Kelman Duran is part of Terraforma Exo, co-curated with Le Guess Who?.
