Kossisko Announces New Album ‘Low’ & Debuts Music Video for “CARDIO”

Posted & filed under Uncategorized.

“This is me as a person, with all my influences and everything.”

Several years after emerging as one of the most-talked-about and critically-acclaimed newcomers of his era, Kossisko (formerly the Ice Cold Perm and Ivry mastermind 100s) is ready to drop his first formal studio album since beginning his new artistic evolution on 2015’s This May Be Me. Titled Low, Kossisko’s upcoming LP serves as the follow-up to 2015’s Red White N Cruel. A departure from the sounds that made him a cult favorite and internet hero of the post-blog era, Low takes the industrial tones of Yeezus, the funk-as-high-art mindset of Prince and the dancefloor sensibilities of every popstar since Michael Jackson and blends them together with a genre-agnostic approach.

“I could say this is really like my debut album,” Kossisko tells us, breaking down his new Low LP. “I did some EPs and shit, but it wasn’t this. Now it’s dialed in, and this is what the f*ck I wanted to do. This is the first album I feel like I have ever done — even considering what I did with 100s. This is me as a person, with all my influences and everything. Now, I’m at the point where I’m like, “this is exactly what the f*ck I wanted to do.’”

“I listen to everything, but I mainly draw influences from Rick James, Prince, Depeche Mode, Ariel Pink and shit like that,” he adds, explaining some of the inspirations for his latest sound. “That’s what I really be listening to.”

To support his upcoming project, Kossisko is debuting a new visual and record, “CARDIO.” The concept for the “CARDIO” video took a few months to create, and Kossisko even spent a great deal of time and effort creating a special moodboard, miniature music video set and treatment for the piece.

Check out Kossisko’s new music video for “CARDIO” above, while Low is scheduled to arrive next Friday, November 16; pre-orders are currently available as well. Read the Patrick Montes/Hypebeast exclusive interview with Kossisko at the following link.

Netflix: Prateek Kuhad perfectly captures the spirit of modern relationships

Posted & filed under News, Release, Video.

Little Things on Netflix had, in its first season, tugged at audiences’ heart strings with its simple yet honest portrayal of modern couples and their share of problems. Often touted as a millennial problem, ‘relationships’ in contemporary times, are known to often have no external problematic agents but internal characteristic issues. With a considerable decrease in attention spans and a parallel increase in life’s pace, ‘Pause’ takes a moment to introspect, to think and most importantly to feel.

Composed by Prateek Kuhad, ‘Pause’ has the tranquility which has gradually become the singer-composer’s trademark style. Directed by Reema Sengupta, ‘Pause’ depicts ‘new age’ couples while they sing along to Kuhad’s sweet lyrics. The balance which most require to strike in order to enjoy the relationship, is beautifully depicted by the couples actually going in for balancing gymnastic postures, in the video. Featuring Little Things‘ main couple Dhruv Vats (Dhruv Sehgal) and Kavya Kulkarni (Mithila Palkar), ‘Pause’ is sure to leave its viewers wondering and ruminating.

Little Things charts the narrative of a couple who navigate the complicated world of relationships, careers, and aspirations in the fast-paced city of Mumbai, while always cherishing the little things that make life worth living. Little Things season 2 is all set to stream on Netflix from 5 October, 2018.
