Da Internz are a production team from Chicago, Illinois. The duo is composed of Marcos "Kosine on Da Beat" Palacios and Ernest "Tuo" Clark. Da Internz describe their sound as "gourmet ratchet".[1]

Background

Both men state that they were born to make music. Marcos’ mother put him in piano at six years old. He picked up the saxophone in 5th grade and then the drums in 8th. This duo is from Chicago but is currently based out of Los Angeles, California. Their sound can be found across many genres like hip-hop, pop and neo soul.

The team came together in 2004 when Kosine was a student at Columbia College Chicago and Tuo was working for Conquer Records in Management and as an A&R. Upon graduation in 2006, Marcos was hired at Columbia as a professor of hip-hop beat making. He held this position for two and a half years.

The team had their first major break in 2009 with Mims’ sophomore album, Guilt. The two served as co-executive producers for the project, where they had seven songs.[2] The album’s first single, "Move, If You Wanna", was released in 2008.[3] Kos and Tuo, as they are known, received ASCAP(American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) awards in 2013 for producing, "A$$" by Big Sean and "Birthday Cake" by Rihanna, two of their biggest songs. In addition to the ASCAP awards, Da Internz has had several Grammy nominations. My World 2.0 received a Grammy nomination for best pop vocal album in 2011.[4] Life Is Good, by Nas, received a Grammy nomination for best rap album.[5] Tamar Braxton's Love And War earned a Grammy nomination for best urban contemporary album.[6] Love in the Future by John Legend was also Grammy nominated for best R&B album.[7] Lastly, "Anaconda" by Nicki Minaj, was nominated for best rap song for the 2015 Grammy awards.[8]
