His EP “Kolaf” with La Fève, released in September 2020, was a real springboard for his career.
The New Project: “AI”
Kosei's latest project, "AI", is a collaboration with Khali and J9ueve. What particularly caught the attention was the cover of the EP, created using artificial intelligence.
But beyond this technological prowess, the EP is made up of two excellent tracks which once again demonstrate Kosei's talent. The project was mixed by Mhidiminuit and mastered by St_or_mix and ia00111, adding a touch of professionalism to the whole thing.
