Music: La Cantina – Kanagawa EP

Toulouse, France-based producers La Cantina have come through with a brand new project titled Kanagawa EP. This is my first introduction to the talented group, and I was not disappointed listening to this project.

Inspired by the sounds of Asia, as they describe, this new project features some stellar hip-hop production, featuring strings and synths throughout that add a special aura to the music as a whole. “Hokkaidō” starts the project off with gorgeous synths and samples, as well as a boom-bap beat that channels a lot of classic hip-hop. Similarly with the likes of “Sensei,” “Sunflowers” and “Erena” have gorgeous synth melodies and hard-hitting hip-hop production that make these tracks excellent. Overall, I’m impressed by their ability to create a sound influenced by Asian music, while also keeping the tradition of creating hard-hitting hip-hop beats.

Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by. I run In Search Of Media with the aim of giving a platform to independent beatmakers, rappers and talented musicians. I also hope to make this a home for music discovery, interesting film analysis, exhibition reviews and other interesting content for all of you guys to dive in to. I hope to start a podcast and documentary-style project soon. If you're looking to be a part of this creative project, please go to the contact page and drop me an email, or connect via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. I also write for 'Music Is My Sanctuary.' Thanks 🙏
