A musical bus ride taking in J-pop, new jack swing, digital dancehall, turn-based RPG soundtracks, Seinfeld slap bass, and wonky rapping on the South London band's debut mixtape.
One thing we've been listening to a lot the past few weeks has been Kero Kero Bonito's debut mixtape, 'Intro Bonito'. It's a musical bus ride that takes in J-pop, new jack swing, digital dancehall, turn-based RPG soundtracks, Seinfeld slap bass, and wonky rapping. It's colourful, adventurous pop music, and it's surprisingly rare to find a band debuting with a world as confidently built as this. We recently saw them play live at JACK댄스 i, and now you can check out the debut mixtape in full, featuring previously-shared songs Kero Kero Bonito and Sick Beat alongside 13 otherwise unheard songs.
KKB's label, Double Denim Records, have dedicated a site to them where you can stream 'Intro Bonito', watch a new video, and get a peer into their universe. Check it out here. Otherwise, stream the mixtape below.
Double Denim Records release 'Intro Bonito' on August 26th 2014 (buy).
