Kilo Kami returns with his first single of the year
With a debut EP in the making and following the success of his previous single, ‘Dreams‘, Kilo Kami is ready to take on 2021.
He comments, “I wanted to start the year with a bang. My previous track had a more melodic approach so I knew I wanted to kick the new year off with a proper hard hitting Hip Hop track.”
Back in 2019 when he teamed up with Red Bull to launch his debut release. Zaniko, who’s featured on ‘Tough Love’, was the very first artist he ever collaborated with on one of his own songs.
“Working on this new track felt like a family reunion”, Kilo recalls. “There was so much energy in the studio.”
When talking through the creative process for ‘Tough Love’, Kilo Kami says, ‘‘I have always been obsessed with Chinese and Japanese musical instruments. I just love the way they sound and how they make me feel. The blend between these instruments and modern hip hop production worked out so well for this song. I sent the finished idea to Zaniko and ‘Tough Love’ was created. Zaniko introduced me to Ikilledpluto who completed the vision for the song perfectly delivering such a solid and edgy verse.”
He concludes, “I am very excited about the projects I’m working on and the artists I am collaborating with. There’s a lot more on the way!”
