K-Maxx: Extended Sweater Funk Fam

Sean Boogs & K-Maxx at KPOO Radio

 K-Maxx - Love Is Comin' by K-MaxxMusic

K-Maxx, aka Ken Hopkins, lives for the music. He's a Bay Area original from San Francisco, who's been involved with artists such as Dan the Automator, Too Short, Lenny Williams (Tower of Power), King Tech (Wake Up Show) and more. Releasing two acclaimed underground albums during the Bay's initial reign in the 90's, K-Maxx began the early 2000's with his seminal "Ghetto Gumbo" radio show which can be heard Friday Nights on KPOO in San Francisco. He returned to the music forefront in 2006, producing for artists like 05' B.A.R.S Underground Artist of the Year, Andre Nickatina and co-writing and producing the hit single "Tuesday" for R&B Legend Lenny Williams, which was recently in the Top 30 Urban AC nationwide. A multi-instrumentalist using many methods to create his soundscapes, K-Maxx draws from a diverse array of influences and experiences to create a truly original sound. 

This past Sunday we played his song "Super Drunk" in the basement....Sean Boogs had it pressed up on vinyl. Standing sided by side with K-Maxx singing his song was amazing!
