KANT is the Copenhagen-based producer team that initially made their name on the underground, rising up the cool hierarchy and keeping busy dropping official remixes for the likes of Jessie J, MØ and NERO amongst others.
An undeniable versatility has seen their early darker, more minimal production give way to a smoother, groove-laden style as demonstrated with their last release ‘Nightcall’, which went to rack up an incredible 3M streams on Spotify. Picking up immediate tastemaker support on BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 1Xtra with the likes of heavyweights Annie Mac, Danny Howard and Pete Tong as well as working with hype producers such as MK, it was KANT’s ability to crossover into a more accessible sound whilst maintaining credibility across hype labels like Black Butter, Toolroom, MTA Records, Hive Audio and Suara that’s made their journey so thrilling.
Now KANT is back with their new release “Close To the Wire” – immediately immersive and reminiscent of the stunning piano-led beauty of Moby. However KANT brings in another emerging star in singer/songwriter Leo Stannard (fresh from his feature on the new Kidnap Kid track) on vocals. The combination is something sleek, curiously soulful and undeniably beautiful.
KANT’s numbers speak for themselves: 3M streams on Spotify for “Nightcall”, 1M views on Youtube, over 6M across the Top 10 streams on Spotify – this is the mark of an artist that people fall in love with. This new track places them evermore in the zone of a young musical rainmaker. This is gorgeous stuff that visibly excites as well as comforts. KANT is a special talent indeed.
