Miami-wunderkind Kaizen ventures into the darker side of electro on his menacing New Noise debut, SIX
Drawing inspiration from classic late 00’s electro, Kaizen leads with a noir-influenced intro section before plunging into an intense, industrial-tinged electro drop.
From humble beginnings as a bedroom producer, Kaizen, Japanese for,
“Continuous improvement” and “Change for the better”,
developed a distinct, emotive sound that encapsulates influences from video games, movie scores, and anime.
He rose to acclaim through his standout track ‘Impurity‘, which solidified his presence on influential YouTube channels, such as SuicideSheeep, amassing over 1.3M on-demand streams to date. Kaizen followed up with the Shinigami collaboration ‘Bloom‘, which caught on with tastemakers like Run the Trap, EDM Sauce, This Song Slaps, and The Music Ninja, all lauding the young artist for his uncanny ability to create atmospheric soundscapes.
With a steady string of releases in 2017 including ‘Breathe‘, ‘Tears‘, and ‘I Can’t Help It‘, the latter which broke into the Viral Top 50 in Canada’s Spotify charts, Kaizen is turning heads from one song to the next, staying true to his name by continuously breaking new ground.
