Kiskadee – DOWN

kiskadee down

Jack Chown is a producer and composer based in London who has recently worked behind the scenes for artists such as Benjamin Francis Leftwich, Tycho Jones and BIIANCO.

He’s now given birth to his own project: Kiskadee.

Taken from his upcoming ‘UP__DOWN EP‘, debut single ‘DOWN’ is a mesmerizing instrumental piece full of trippy vibes and gorgeous layers of sounds. Fans of Jamie XX and Bonobo shouldn’t miss it !

The project began in early 2020 when I was gearing up for a creative trip to Iceland to collect sounds / visuals for this project. Covid hit and I was forced to rethink, instead reaching out to friends + musicians on social media; asking for them to send in voice-notes that reflected their experiences of lockdown and isolation.

I started flipping these sounds into beats and posted them onto instagram as I went. The instant feedback and back-and-forth from a growing community of fans/collaborators started to shape the sound of the project. After a while I set about cutting, combining and extending these posts into four tracks ready for release: the ‘UP__DOWN EP'” – He explains.

Sounds like: Jamie XX, Bonobo
