Sydney-based Iranian jazz rapper Kiyanosh has just unveiled his daring new single ‘KARMA’ – lifted from his forthcoming EP ‘Dying Alone’ – produced by label-mate shue, mixed by Doebas Petes and mastered by Jack Prest at Studios 301.
Opening with ominous swirling sounds, ‘KARMA’ is a thought-provoking slice of introspective hip hop. The sincere and commanding cadences of Kiyanosh float effortlessly above the flawless and brooding production of shue, to create an infectious and bouncy track led by its subtle chaotic energy.
Kiyanosh describes the motivation behind the track:
“The inspiration for this one loosely stems from me comparing my life and what I’ve gone through to that of my Mother’s, and realising how much more cynical and jaded I am, even though I’ve kind of gone through nothing in comparison to her.”
Kiyanosh embraces the sounds of jazz, soul, electronic and everything in between. Born and raised in Sydney with most of his family overseas, Kiyanosh often explores his Iranian roots, his Australian upbringing and the inevitable clash of cultures, ideals and lifestyles between his two worlds.
Sonically speaking, Kiyanosh continues to consistently manipulate genre in order to better explore a wider range of emotions and ideas. In addition to his solo project, Kiyanosh is also a member of hip-hop duo SKID2 and founder of the Spretbot Syndicate record label and collective.
Previous releases have been strongly supported by the likes of triple j, triple j Unearthed, FBi Radio, 2SER FM, 2XX FM, The Word is Bond (USA), Hip Hop Magz (USA) and many more.
In the coming weeks Kiyanosh will reveal an accompanying music video for ‘KARMA’.
