It’s finally here! I present you, “Lavash” – the Music Video, or short film rather. This is the single off my upcoming album: The World to Come LP, which you can stream via Apple Music & Spotify & purchase via iTunes.
Pre-order links will be available very soon. The album is scheduled for a release in mid-April. Listen to the second single “On the Inside” – below:
It is finally time to unveil the music video, or short film, for Lavash, the single off my upcoming album. The release date for the video is officially March 20th. It will be viewable here, as a YouTube clip via the “FILM” navigation tab atop the homepage.
The complete album, The World to Come LP, is scheduled for release this coming, mid-April. It will be available for sale via iTunes & streamable via Apple Music, Spotify & TIDAL.
This will mark my debut, self-produced record.
It includes both pop, rock & hip-hop elements and incorporates eastern instrumentation. The theme draws on questions of Armenian and Arab identity within American society, but also beyond the social issues, lie the more personal struggles with love, pride, envy, competition & familial justice. This makes for the variant juxtaposition of somber & comical, uplifting tones throughout the album.
Tune in for more updates, including show dates & new merchandise. The plan is to have Lavash shirts available for sale via the website & at live shows.
I am also working on upgrading the overall website look – this will include the domain name http://www.mynameisdannyk.com. The current one will still work. Both will direct to this website.
Look-out for the video March 20th!

Meanwhile watch the video for “W.Y.W.”, the single off the album below:
Danny Krikorian aka KRIKOS was born in Riyadh Saudi Arabia. He moved to the US at age 6 and became quickly absorbed in the culture of hiphop. Over the years, Danny has put out various pieces, producing for other artists like Brooklyn legend Talib Kweli. This album is entirely self-produced and features KRIKOS himself, narrating his own story through the culture of hiphop by which he has been molded. The project, “Checks & Balances”, is a dichotomy balancing the roots and the future of hiphop, the politics of justice and power, and the need for maintaining authenticity while pursuing financial freedom. It is furthermore an expression of all the struggles endured by Danny as an immigrant from the Middle East. “Checks & Balances” tells the story of a journey, and leaves hope for a future of justice and prosperity for all. With influences drawn from the golden era of hiphop, Danny uses both the staple foundations of hiphop such as soul sampling as well as fusing it with the new 808 sound that has emerged over the last decade. The piece seeks to bridge the gap between the trendy and the socially responsible.
