      Regarded as one of the most eloquent acts in Canada, High Klassified has been considered as a vanguard in the producing field. Originally from Laval Quebec, which is located north of Montreal, the Haitian based producer has first started producing as part of his older sibling's rap group. His love for different music genres (ranging from rap & hiphop to video games instrumentals) has helped him forge the basis of his unique experimental sound.

      In the first years of 2010, High Klassified was associated with the emerging Montreal's 'Piu-Piu' scene and was also part of the popular ALAIZ collective, which also included upcoming artists such as Kaytranada & Da-P. His music caught the attention of world-renowed Montreal based DJ & producer A-Trak who offered him a spot on his Fools Gold imprint, in 2012. He's also part of the super group Low Pros which also features A-Trak and well known US producers Lex Luger & Metro Boomin'.

      In 2014, his first major LP, 'Palindroma' (2014) was released throughout major digital platforms and was met with critical-acclaim. He embarked on a Eurasia tour to promote his release and performed at many sold-out venues. His follow-up project, 'Kronostasis' (2016) received the same warm reception. His production work has featured collaborations with many international artists, most notably France's popular rapper Joke, Chicago-based artist Mic Jenkins and Canadian "dark-R&B" sensation The Weeknd. The Laval-based producer has also received many endorsments, most notably from Adidas, Red Bull & Axe among others.

      High Klassified is also a prominent fashion ambassador in the fashion scene and has partnered with many local talents such as 3Paradis, New Regime &... in 2015, he partnered with the popular Montreal-based urban clothing store 'OFF THE HOOK' to start the 'LVL OU RIEN' brand. The brand's name also represents his signature line, which is based off his patriotic love for his neighbourhood.
