Kanto of Brand New Music has released his first EP album ‘14216‘ today.
Kanto is known for being part of the group Troy together with Bumkey and for several featurings for artists like Seo Inyoung, 15&, Raina, Bada, or Rumble Fish. Three years after his debut he is now releasing his first mini album.
The album title stands for the two years from 2014 to 2016 that Kanto spent working on this album. The title track ‘Lonely’ is a tropical house – hiphop mix that was created by Brand New Music’s next-generation producer 9999. It also features singer-songwriter Eddy Kim who is trying out a completely new genre. The music video was directed by NAMSANFILM‘s Kang Seungwon who has also responsible for Crush’s ‘Oasis’ and Paloalto’s ‘Good Times’.
Kanto personally produced all tracks and it is evident how much his skills have improved. He received help from idol group Seventeen’s WOOZI, producer 9999, R&B singer Yang Dail, newcoming producer DOKO, Kang Minhee of Miss $, hit producer Primeboi and Brand New Music’s veteran producer Assbrass.
This album is Brand New Music’s first trainee rapper’s first big step as a solo artist, so make sure to give it a listen. You can check out the official album preview below!
