Feeling a bit camera shy


Organized Chaos: The phrase applies all to well in the life and music of multiskilled Elko, NV resident emcee/producer/engineer/video director and
editor Roberto (iLL ZakieL) Sanchez. Early life was convoluted with
immigration, assimilation, constant relocation and reintegration.
Having immigrated from Mexico at an early age  with his mother and
sister, Zakiel jumped back and forth from his native country back to
the U.S. over and over as a kid. This mixture of
cultures and places lived (including Gudalajara Jalisco, Mexico and in
the U.S. Reno, Las Vegas, Carlin and currently Elko Nevada) all played
a role in forming this complex character.
   This is all blatantly apparent in his music. Zakiel's sounds vary
from mariachi influenced hiphop tracks, rock rap hybrids, boombap,
melodic tunes to dark and heavy tracks. " I just make music that i
like. I believe that every person is complex. I don't think any person
is just one thing, we are all a mixture of passed experiences, current
situations and different influences. So musically i would never want
to box myself in to a certain sub-genre of hiphop. At the end of the
day i make hiphop and I feel that I'm being true to myslef." While
Zakiel admits that his mane influence in music is 90's hiphop,  he
maintains that all sorts of music inspire him. "I call it organized
chaos man. Lyrically and musically i'd like to think im pretty well
rounded." he says. After listening, one could agree he can hit a wide
of styles and subject matter. Zakiel lyrically Maneuversthrough different delivery techniques effortlessly and hits a wide
spectrum of moods on his music all with a bilingual twist at times. Ranging from braggadocio,
self deprecating, introspective, socially aware, dark and chaotic to
feel good party
tracks all mixed with  harmonizing hooks, its safe to say that
versatility is one of his strengths.
