Räs knto has been creating electronic music for over ten years, mostly bass music but not only. He believes in universal love and hope in mankind, I think all dreams can be realized by the power of the will.

His opinion is that art is not merchandising that is why all his music is in free download, He does not have a label and runs his own way as an independent. When he releases a single he wants it to be as best as possible with his modest gear. räs knot hopes you'll have fun listening to his music and don't hesitate to ask him for collabs; He loves that.
