Miami-born multi-instrumentalist and producer KAIXEN releases new LP, ‘Pecado’ on October 27th via Lush Records.
Hailing from a musical family, Julian Munro aka KAIXEN is no stranger to the music scene, trained as a contemporary jazz guitarist, he has played guitar in several bands in the past. Munro forfeited a full scholarship to the University of Miami as an economics major, in order to pursue his music career.
Pecado, meaning “sin” in Spanish and Portuguese, perfectly captures the album’s hypnotic nature. The latest two singles released off the album, ‘In Private’ and ‘Brand New’ follow tales of love and lust, while sending off signals of self-reflection during personal affairs. Self produced and co-created with fellow musicians and friends (‘In Private’ co-produced by Clips x Ahoy), Pecado brings in a distinctive sound, with experimentation at it’s best. The album features collaborations with experimental hip-hop and RnB artists such as Twelve’Len, MRKI, Austin Paul, Christian Rivero, The Loft, Savannah Cristina, Dvwez & Native Youth and Silk Matthews.
“I hear everything a certain way and have an exact feel of how I want things to be,” Says Munro “This whole album was really inspired by growth, but growth in doing things we know are wrong. I feel like life tests you, you can make the worst decisions in a given situation and it can stunt or catapult your growth.”
