Discovery: KINS

KINS is an American instrumental artist who has worked with Beyoncé and Jay Z violinist Natie. His new spiritual track is called Yunnan.

By Graeme Smith

For Yunnan, KINS took his inspiration from south west China and the vocal chanting that floats in and out of the track was originally recorded in that area. Melding with it are various other mystical sounds of the Far East, as well as modern, almost industrial samples and instruments. It creates a composition that is not quite traditional and not quite futuristic, perhaps belonging perfectly in the present.

Already a highly respected producer in the music industry, KINS has proven he is a dab hand at the instrumental too through Yunnan. Check it out below.
