With over 300 single releases and 9 mixed compilations to date, he is surely on top of his game, consistently delivering his fresh distinctive sound one beat at a time. Creating a highly energetic atmosphere and filling the floor at every event is his specialty.

From Europe, to the Middle-East and beyond Agent K’s fan base continues to grow.

Agent K began his career in 1996, making appearances in various clubs and venues across Florida. With four years under his belt as a bass player in an alternative rock band, he took his talents into the studio to make electronic music. “I was attracted to the fact that there were unlimited creative possibilities to making electronic music, you can incorporate sounds from every genre of music there is.”
It wasn’t long after when he created the label, Warped Recordz, with production partner, Deuce. The popular “Agent K and Deuce” produced top selling tracks across the United States and became one of the most sought after acts of the funky breaks era in the South East, US. In 2004, Agent K began working on his own and managing the well-known Afterdark Records. He quickly became a hot commodity in the Nu-Skool movement of breaks and broke into international status working and producing with artists such as Aquasky, Deep Impact, Breakfastaz, and Deepcut.
