Fool’s Gold Records presents High Klassified‘s future rhythm and blues Kanvaz EP; its five sensuous singles include collaborations from Leaf, Da-P and Zach Zoya. High Klassified produced Future‘s 2017 certified platinum record “Coming Out Strong” (feat. The Weeknd), and Highsnobiety tagged H.K. as their “10 New Artists to Discover This Week” poster child.
The Laval, Quebec instrumentalist has a way of flirting with several genres. A low-key grime beat lives amongst slithering snare rolls in “Stenio Keytar.” Feminist flow succubus Leaf lures listeners to “Come Over.” Kevin Vincent’s (High Klassified) cut “1919” appeared on the New Music Now and New Music Friday Canada official Spotify playlists. “NS Bounce” possesses blissful synths beside tight kicks, whereas “Kefka” begins with a slight chiptune ambiance.
“I’m comfortable with my art” said Vincent. “That’s what I’ve always gone for. Yes it’s dangerous, but I always manage to find myself: a new goal or to push my craft in a new direction. I keep thinking for myself. I keep investing 100% of my hopes in High Klassified. Straight up, I keep my eyes closed, and I go through the unknown, and I hope that this project will please a lot of people.”
