If you didn’t have time to listen to anything for the day, make Kan Wakan’s track “Molasses” the only thing that crawls into your ears.
Bulgarian-born Gueorgui Linev, better known as Kan Wakan, resurfaces with the track “Molassess” that pulls apart senses with such a delicate precision a listener will be left with pieces at the end without an explanation.
The Los Angeles-based composer and producer pours smooth and sensual textures that seems like an unexpected gift. Featuring friend Elle Olsun, who lends her angelic and climatic breathy vocals, “Molasses” becomes a head on sensory experience. Surprise musical fusions, such as a rich harmonica, add to the soulful and longing feeling that Olsun conveys as well. Wakan’s production and recreation of something painfully beautiful is painted for a listener through the waves- crafted as a unique china doll, accounting for every detail, inside and out.
“Molasses” becomes a track that cannot be unheard due to the exposure of human-esque qualities that are derived after each listen.
