After years of being the featured voice and gaining millions of plays on Tracks with Henri Purnell, CV Blank, Hillow and other producers, the Singer & Songwriter Zekt (aka Andrew Kim) finally comes forward with more of his own project, and he is here to stay.
The Hawian songwriter with South korean roots is going to release his track 925 on the 11th October together with the Label & Managment AIMEND.
You know the saying - „Happiness is only real when shared“? Zekt incorporated a lot of that when he grew up in Hawaii. Zekt's sound has been so deeply in love with his hometown Honolulu, that you can feel the ecuatorial sun no matter where you listen to it.
His music has a mixture between soulful vocals à la James Blake and such a bright timbre that it inherently puts a smile upon your face.
Zekt rose up from practically having no musical background until his teenage years. Making small steps in the Music industry with several features and producing his own tracks.
But after a trip to Berlin to work with Producer like Dillistone and Made in M, he smelled blood and committed completely to music.
The afterwork-soundtrack '925' was recorded during a short stay in Berlin in spring 2019.
Zekt's tracks are bound to touch you. His writing is always tuck to reality.
He sais that you stagnate as a writer if you stay out of reality for too long: „your writing just becomes shit.“ he states, „some musicians are so full of themselves – they don't realise that it's more – it's a lot of all the people you meet.“
Zekt's light-weighted lyrics talk of the wish to relax after work and the everyday hassle, and together with gentle synth waves and sky-blue melody lines, he sure does get the listener started for a perfect 420 liftoff.
