A trained trumpetist, Kuna Maze's music is a hypnotic and melodic beat-driven style that touches on hip-hop, jazz, electronica, broken beat, and more experimental pastures. Up until now, Kuna Maze has released two EPs via Cascade, 2015's Tricky Part and 2016's Postpone, with Gum his latest.
Listening to Gum, obvious lines can be drawn to artists such as Jay Dee, Flying Lotus, The Gaslamp Killer, Weather Report, and the wider LA beat scene. It's a skillful blend of swinging beats and stunning instrumentation, emotive tracks full of floating atmospheres and poignant melodies.
You can pre-order Gumhere ahead of the June 16 release, with the title track streaming in full below.
