Trian Kayhatu’s was born in Jakarta Indonesia, but as a young lad moved to the Netherlands with his folks. At an early age he got into music and was heavily influenced by his uncle, Indonesian jazz pianist Chris Kayhatu.
This guy loves making good music and you can hear he’s been doing what he loves for many years now. Trian Kayhatu is in a super funky band called Butufunk consisting of Trian Kayhatu, Azteka and Karish. Ya’ll better recognize!
Trian’s been featured in online music web magazine DE:BUG and his music has been played on the radio by Gilles Peterson (BBC), Ennio Styles (Stylin’) and Joe Kay (Soulection). It will be no surprise that his next project on Darker Than Wax is straight butta. We’re very excited to exclusively premiere the title track of his upcoming “Suture” EP.
