Weekend Music – We could not possibly know any less about Kyodai
So, we heard this amazing track from a group named Kyodai… Beyond hearing the song play, we could find absolutely nothing to say about them…
Resident Advisor says Kyodai are from the USA, and links to a Soundcloud page that says Kyodai is from London UK. Their Facebook page has absolutely no information on them, and includes this no-possible-information-here photo:
They have released a few tracks on Sweden’s Local Talk Records, and a few on East London’s Muak Music.
Then, we thought there may be some clue in their name… Wiktionary says there are 2 definitions for Kyodai:
- The brothers. They are high in rank in the yakuza clan. Their leader is the shatei gashira.
- State of giant
What gives? Neither of those make any sense at all!
So – to the best of our knowledge, Kyodai are Japanese Americans, making music in East London for a Swedish label, and are in a constant “state of giant.”
Whatever they are, this track is heavy. Crank it up and have a great weekend!
