Bio

Born in Zimbabwe, Arnold, the artist now known as 80EM (pronounced ATM) got his first taste for music as a dancer. He simply got his groove as he vibed to beats that motivated him.

His dance interest is inspired by the late, great Michael Jackson, Nonstop, Les Twins, Salah, Jabbawockeez Crew etc.

80EM dreamed of making music and playing gigs so he decided to pick up the music production software but never took seriously. In 2014, he met the musician and multi-talented artist Crisis Mr Swagger now known as Chisenga who inspired him to take music seriously. It was until in 2017 where picked up Ableton Live and never looked back. Since then the duo have since grown from just performing to hosting events, recording new and already established artists, and participating in dance and Hip hop workshop for the youth.

Lately, the multi-talented artist 80EM has produced for fellow musicians, Chisenga, DJ Manak, T Mu$y, R.Williams, Pace D Rapper and more. He has also worked alongside Optamus of legendary Aussie Hip-Hop crew Downsyde.

Things are only getting started.
