Born and raised in Michigan, Detroit, Sid Vashi has been actively involved in music since his early teen years - playing and recording for jazz bands in his area. In 2013, Vashi dropped his debut LP titled 'Motherland Tourism'. The album, which garnered praise from influential webzines such as THUMP by Vice, showcased Vashi's ability to craft together organic, textural songs that included samples from old Indian records on top of rhythmic, dynamic hip-hop beats.
