[ Release Info ]
13M streams and 4M listeners combined – a solid number for the two chillhop pros coming together for the brand new release “Moral” with Stereofox. Both Kiabits and sao kzu breathe in the mellow sounds and gripping beats influenced by hip hop and boom bap.
“Moral” flies into your headphones with a steady drum pattern that carries carefully curated keys and strings. It’s like a walk in the park when every single pink petal falling from the cherry blossoms is coloring the view outside. It’s nostalgic with a slight melancholia without diving into the sadness. A great tune to accompany you through the first warm days after the snow has melted.
[ Artist Bio ]
Kiabits is a multifaceted artist from Spain, based in Canary Islands. His passion for music came from his father, guitarist and singer-songwriter. His sound is mostly influenced by 90’s HipHop and boombap. Some of his favorite producers are Nujabes, DJ Premier, Made in M, Juan Rios, Arbour, Wun Two, Smuv, Jinsang, J Dilla, and many others.
He uses sampling techniques and also composes his own melodies to create a unique sound, characterized by powerful drums and organic instrumentation. He plays guitar, didgeridoo, mouth arp, beatbox, flute and more. To date he has worked with labels such as Chill Select, Lofi Jazz Records, Lofi Chill Records, Speak Less Listen more, Chill Moon Music, Vinyl Digital and Dreamhop Music. He has collaborated with several producers such as Solrakmi, KOHEI YOSHII, ArtÖ, LilJuice, notJamesHan, bittersweet.girl, Eclectic Elephants, Cloud VonSmoke, Phortran and Natasha Ghosh.
sao kzu’s journey through and with music has been transformational in every possible way. It has been around and in his life since he was born so it came to him naturally but grew into something he could not foresee. Each and everyday it becomes a more intimate relationship and the love for the creation itself, words seem to lack meaning.
