19-year-old Toronto based production phenom Krs. (pronounced ‘Kris’) has garnered a devoted fanbase in the past year, much in thanks to the founding of his collective Film Noir as well as the release of well-received countless remixes and originals alike. His latest two releases are yet another step in the right direction… this kid can’t miss.
Bend Ova is a bouncy dancehall-influenced heater featuring crisp low-end tones, vigorous snares and vocal samples from J Capri’s dancehall hit “Boom and Bend Over.” The track was inspired by the sounds & styles of Sam Gellaitry and Monte Booker and is yet another dazzling addition to the ever-expanding sound library of Krs.
Faking It is the first cut from Krs’ debut S.I.W.A.H. EP, and is a full team effort from the Film Noir squad, showcasing Krs. and his team’s boundless creativity. The track features production from Krs., BNJMN, and Mars Today to complement the lush vocals and verses from Maurice Moore, Khary, and BNJMN.
