“For me, making music is the most child-like thing ever,” says Jian Liew, better known as Kyson, synth-shaman of teleporting sounds. “You’re just free, running around a field naked, doing whatever you want. There are no borders to what you can do. It’s limitless.” The musician-producer has tinkered with effervescent, hip-hop soundscapes, which Pitchfork described as “exotic but familiar,” over two albums (The Water’s Way, A Book of Flying) and several collaborations (among them: Shigeto’s “Water Collides” and Bon Iver’s “Holocene”). This has culminated in his third album, the self-titled Kyson (out 17.01.19 on B3SCI), a sonic memoir that jailbreaks Kyson’s repertoire through depth of narrative and tactile instrumentation. Where he ensconced his other releases in escapism, this one, by design, hits you in your soul.
