Description (English):
After receiving accolades from Will.i.am, signing with a major label in Asia, and touring with Korean super group Epik high at sold out venues such as House of Blues Hollywood and The Fillmore Irving plaza, Kero One not only picked up new fans but new inspirations for his third solo album. Inspiration’s came not only from the musicians Kero One toured with, crowds Kero One interacted with, but also the sights and sounds of each city. As Kero One puts it, “Time is ticking, everyone is moving, things are changing, and it’s this kinetic world that inspires me to write”.

The San Francisco based DIY rapper- producer that started his career from a credit card and persistent hard work, is back again with his third self-released album entitled Kinetic World. Kinetic World is an 11 track album produced entirely by Kero One. In addition, he also plays most of the instruments and performs some of the scratching on the album. Lyrically, the album explores Kero One’s mission and drive in his music career (Let Me Clarify), his strive to stay fitted and fashionable (We Stay Fly), potentially controversial topics of Asians in America and media (Asian Kids), finding the love of his life (On Bended Knee), and also his experiences of life in the fast lane (Fast Life). In Kinetic World, Kero One shows us varying rap and production styles spawning from the east and west coast, dirty south, and Asia, featuring artists such as Fashawn, Tablo of Epik high, Myk, Dumbfoundead, Othello, Dminor, and The Tones.

SUBMARINE - 島唄 (Japanese CD Edition)

* Japanese CD Edition
Description (Japanese):
“沖縄のア・トライブ・コールド・クエスト”との異名を誇った(?)沖縄出身のラッパー&トラックメーカーのヒップホップ・グループ、SUBMARINEが実に約8年振りとなる新作アルバム『島唄』をリリース。
SUBMARINEの二人とは十数年来の付き合いで、お互いの作品にも参加し合ってきた□□□の三浦康嗣が全面参加し、プロデュースにあたった入魂のフル・アルバムが完成。
所謂文系ヒップホップとは一線を画しつつも、ユーモラスかつ情景描写に優れたストリーテリングにより、彼らにしか表現出来ないオリジナルな文学性が確立された作品となった。
近年ではドレスコーズ、木村カエラ、Neggicco他のプロデューサーとしても才能を遺憾無く発揮している三浦康嗣のヴォーカルを含むポスト・プロダクションやミックスにより、以前からも顕著であったが、ヒップホップに留まらない更に幅広い音楽性を獲得。
長い製作期間を経ながらも、ヴァリエーションに富んだフレッシュかつ煌びやかなサウンドは、聴く度に新たな発見を体感させ、何度もリピートしたくなること必至。
