KOTENSHU - DON'T TALK ABOUT MY FUTURE
The scene in New Zealand is simply brimming with talent and heat. We have lost count the number of NZ cats that have already been featured on our Free Download series, and Robert Hayles aka Kotenshu is another proud addition to it. A shy 21 year old being, his fascination with the Japan beat scene was curated out of living beneath the Mt Fuji lookalike: Mt Taranaki. As far as his genre's go, Kotenshu tries not to stay tied down to any particular categories. He first experimented with electronic music as a 13 year old, using royalty-free loops to create ghetto-techno and acid house bangers on his parents' clunky home PC. Currently he is working in a 1980s style UK New Wave band playing synth and writing sad vocal lines for the gloomy masses, but still has plenty of time for Japanese Boom-bap: his true passion.
'Don't talk about my future' is a succint reflection of his roots, as well as his vision forward. Press play. :)
