Paranorm, (or Parakhan) is me. I’m in groups called KAMALA, OMNIGOD, and Dj Strictnine & Paranorm. Originally from South Bend, IN., I skateboard, make beats, record verses, and live in Los Angeles, CA.
TV Networks my music has appeared on: VH1, Showtime, Showtime Extreme, The Learning Channel, Discovery, Style Network, Travel, MTV, Fuel Tv, Galavision, G4 Tech TV, MTV2, MTV Jams, PBS, NPR, Superstation, and more.
Random projects / scoring: Various bumpers (MTV Jams, etc), Beastie Boys TV Show (wish that would’ve come out), movie sites (Snakes On A Plane, Harold and Kumar, etc), skate and surf DVDs (Deathbowl to Downtown, Super-X Media, Contrast, etc).
I have been on a bunch of 12″ vinyl releases, compilations (domestic and international), CDs, mixtapes, and played on commercial / college radio around the world. I have had multiple record deals over the years (Grand Royal/Capitol, Fistfulayen (Ian!), KPM music library appearances, + more).
