Russian producer and label owner DZA teamed up with Kidkanevil for this ‘Kaiju‘ Ep. The Japanese word “Kaiju” literally means “strange beast” and is also used to refer to monster movies like Godzilla. This Ep is quite the beast. Kaiju beats is what they do and make Kidkanevil and DZA stand out. Both producers proof to be pretty familiar with making good use of your eardrums. The opening track ‘Scarecrow’ starts off with heavy bass drums and percussion samples to eventually be embraced by raw synth stabs. It immediately sets the tone. Have a listen to the full release here below.
Kidkanevil’s laying the final touch on his new record My Little Ghost before it gets released May 9th. The complete album is inspired by a summer spent exploring Tokyo. ‘What’s left is nothing more than the ghost of a young soul, wandering about and curiously studying the surrounding, forever looking for answers that would otherwise seem trivial.’ This previewed track sounds like a spiritual trip. It leaves you wanting more. Have a listen to an other track from the album here.
