Los Angeles-based artist Kintaro hits a musical home run with his new project Universal EP.
The EP, which dropped Tuesday, is a product of Jameel Bruner. Bruner is a former keyboardist of The Internet and brother of Grammy-winning artist Thundercat. As Kintaro, Bruner exhibits that music runs in his blood through a potpourri of trap as well as electronic noise.
Opening with a distorted noise-ridden cut “Alt Pln,” Kintaro speaks volumes to his fame (“you know I’m finna blow up”) and commands with a clear message (“I don’t give a f*ck ’bout your opinion). At moments, he mixes a poetic structure while riding over a digital soundscape.
The cut is followed with “Mk,” which is half-jazz club inspired with the coolness of a bouncy instrumental. The track features soul man Anderson.Paak as the singer smoothly bubbles over the snappy futurized beat.
Cuts like “West” reveal Kintaro to be mindful of his past with The Internet. The cut features the mesmerizing wave of a contemporary R&B beat and the artist situates himself amongst rhythm as well as minimalized serenity.
The EP’s last numbers, “Trap You” and “Alien Trap,” call a fulfilling sense of oddity and spaciness to the stand. On both tracks, the artist ventures into nu-trap vibrations over a string of bells, drums and extraterrestrial woo’s.
The artist’s latest effort is promising all while making little to no mistakes as he covers a myriad of genres.
