For one week in February 2019, 100 artists came together in a house in Los Angeles to make music.

Keep Cool is a Los Angeles–based record label. It’s the creative safe haven for artists and creatives alike, run by a team of multi-talented people from broad walks of life. Keep Cool grew from daydreams and sleepless nights, tireless work and friendships forged in the trenches of time and taste.
We came together to build a new label, the dream of kids who listened to too much music, watched too many movies, read too many books, and believed in a world so much bigger than ourselves.
Songs from Scratch is about putting artists in positions to make things that surprise them, and their fans. For nine years the series has produced one-on-one collaborations from artists like Chance the Rapper & Nosaj Thing, Kehlani & Mr Carmack, Brent Faiyaz & DJ Dahi and many more. Matchmaking is a thrill but all the while a question lingered: what would happen if fifty or even one hundred artists and producers got together in one place to make music?

Yours Truly Creative was founded in 2011, but it started 20 years ago with high-school freshmen skipping class to put on hip-hop shows, and run a zine. After 10 years working at agencies, and media companies, co-founders Babak Khoshnoud and Will Abramson quit the ad-game (IDEO & Spin Media) to play for ourselves — harnessing our experience, instincts, and energy to create rich stories and thoughtful design that enrich businesses and impact culture.
