For our newest Run The Trap premiere, we’re debuting New York-based artist KYOSi‘s Negative Space EP. The 3-track ethereal pop EP sounds equal parts haunting and dreamy, but it’s much more than just beats. Each track delivers its own message serving as a stepping stone to the next one. It’s easy to hear that the EP is not just a collection of songs, but a carefully crafted anthology that serves as a political commentary on the current administration and the injustices being faced nationwide. KYOSI’s Negative Space EP is out everywhere Friday, June 21st. Stream KYOSI’s new Negative Space EP below.
The question I ask myself is “did I make something I believe to be beautiful?” and if the answer is yes then I’ve reached success. As we were working on these tunes I found myself slowly abandoning form. When you stop giving a fuck about where something is going you open up to a new palette and just enjoy working with sound. Having a collaborator that’s down for that kind of ride gives some quality control while adding to the likelihood that you’ll come out with a more singular soundscape, even if it is a little odd and doesn’t tick a box. – KYOSi
