Stay Focused with Kyral x Banko Music

From Chicago Kyral x Banko been known amongst locals for their impressive bass anthems and remixes contributing to wild nights at Trap House and Porn & Chicken events. Riding under the Quality Goods banner following their Plenum Records and independent releases they have been gaining recognition nationally. Sharing stages with the likes of UZ, LOUDPVCK, Vic Mensa, Figure, Cookie Monsta and more, the duo established their name suddenly after landing opening slot for a sold out Flux Pavilion show for their first performance. With hard work and dedication the two capitalize on the opportunity and kept the momentum going.

Before Kyral x Banko, Collin Burdick and Bennet Kohler went to college together where they graduated chemistry and advertising; an essential key to getting their brand name out there through blogs and other sources. Just sharpening their DJ and production skills working on hip-hop beats originally, it has grown into complex layers of bass, synths, high hats and beat work. Just releasing their Focus EP on Quality Goods to follow Proper you can hear how their experimental style evolved.

The four track EP starts off with mild with some harmonic synths and chopped vocals leading into a Break of heavy bass drops and siren like synths. Bend It does just that, bend genres into a fusion of bass and moombahton influence to get a dance floor bouncin. The title track rumbles through the speakers like a trap anthem to prepare you for the Matrix with Matty Did That. Concluding that with some high energy the much anticipated EP is a must have for your playlist. Check out their interview with Trapstyle so for more in depth perspective on their journey to this EP thus far and get inspired.

What So Not Jumps Genres With Divide and Conquer

What So Not continues to experiment with different sounds across the electronic music spectrum. We heard his try with a hip hop collaboration with Tkay Maidza and trap and bass sounds in his Gemini EP. Now we see more of a combination of both in recent days; This summer releasing a fair share of genre bending tracks and a music video. Emoh seems to be having fun branching out solo, directing What So Not into newer sounds with creative artists like GANZ, Baauer, Dillon Francis, George Maple, GTA and Tunji Ige to name just a few.

One of the many songs that should be in your playlist this summer, Buried is a beautiful combination of hip hop, female vocals and beat production with George Maple and Rome Fortune. You will sing your soul away among the guitar and synth. A much more ambient song compared to Feel It with GTA and Tunji, yet just as vibrant. Feel It builds with more synths on the high end with vocals quickly leading into an atmospheric drop. Have you jumpin on a cloud.

Now if you want heavy What So Not has heavy. After playing with light synths, WSN hits the studio to work on a new EP project Divide and Conquer. Just as GTA gets ready for an album release this October. Divide and Conquer the single is released following the aforementioned tracks. Not long after releasing the Gemini EP either and this guy is ready to showoff some new sounds. Getting creative on the heavy bassline on this one. A dark trap anthem is born to get a night life crowd pumped. Along with Buried, these songs set the tone for the upcoming EP, this sounds exciting.

Divide & Conquer Out Now
