Asher-E (The Netherlands)
'Riddim master' and Black Star producer Asher-E!
Eelco Kastermans (Asher-E) is an allround reggae musician, sound engineer and producer. For many years he is the producer and soundengineer for Black Star Foundation.
 
Biography
Asher-E played keyboard in the Dutch reggae bands Higher Ground, The Irie Connection, Out of Many and dProcessor. One of his most recent projects is 'Vreemde Vogels'.

For Black Star Foundation Asher-E produces many dubplates and tunes! Besides that, he works together with our artists on the production and recordings of new songs and riddims.

Asher-E already produced the album 'Blaze Fire' by Osagyefo (Ghana), 2 singles by Lady K-Wida (e.g. One Man Woman ft. Yellowman), 'Dub & Dwars', the reggae album by the Dutch rapper Brainpower, the album 'Black Star presents Vivian Jones' with Jamaican singer Vivian Jones, the EP 'Exile Di Brave meets Black Star' by Exile Di Brave (Jamaica) and 'The Black Star Tracks' by Leah Rosier. Also the Black Star riddims 'Bad Girls', 'Rub-A-Dub', 'Lovely Girl' and 'World of Righteousness' are produced by Asher-E.

Black Star Foundation is very grateful to Asher-E for all the work he has done during the years and the sharp and crispy sound he produces. That is one of the main reasons Black Star released a solo-album by Asher-E on melodica to put the multi-instrumentalist in the spotlight as a solo-artist! The album 'Black Star Melodies' is released on 15 december 2017 and is available digital and on CD.

Marlon Asher (Trinidad) called him 'The Riddim Master'!
