As Kan Wakan, Gueorgui Linev makes music that is simultaneously atmospheric and evocative, skirting the borders of trip-hop, hip-hop, electronica, psychedelia and even folk, and psychedelia.
The Los Angeles based artist/producer is preparing a triple-LP for release in the new year, ahead of which, Kan Wakan has shared a new single ‘I Would’. The new track follows ‘Molasses’, and sees the producer join forces with Elle Olsun once again. Spare, slow-building dramatics trickle into a haunting and absorbing concoction of airy pop, jazz tones and folky strum. Topped off by Olsun’s smoky, smooth and gorgeous voice, ‘I Would’ waltzes by like a wonderful daydream.
Triple LP Phantasmagoria is due out sometime in the new year, so 2017 is shaping to be a big year for the young Bulgarian-born musician. From what we’ve heard so far it seems like a record to look forward to. For now, you can listen to ‘I Would’ below.
