Brand new Raleigh-based duo «kick & casonka» are set to break into the music world with the release of dual singles «created» (Jan. 19) and «stressed» (Feb. 2) with distribution and support via Cigar City Management. Be the first to listen, sing and dance along as the two debut the tracks at Imurj.
kick & casonka is Ryan Magnusson (Viking Breakdance) and Carson Koenig (Cayso). They've established themselves through their own projects in the past and now they're creating together.
Vibrating between the acoustic and electronic, the duo leans on a bevy of familiar ingredients, plucked mostly from the soundscapes of electronic, rap, R&B and soul. The foundation of the sound sits prominently below 250 Hz. A backbone of bass that rattles the psyche and gives way to a tapestry of saturated tones. Slightly pitched down vocals amplify and echo a latent attitude while leaving intact the emotional weight of every word.
The outcome? Music that is as honest and direct as a conversation with your uncle, Frank.
