Kant, meaning edge in danish is a new project by Danish artist Joachim Schaarup-Jensen. Born in Copenhagen with 11 years under his belt abroad in Berlin and London, Joachim's roots are in hiphop as a songwriter and performing artist. Introduced to deephouse a few years back he fell in love with the sound from the get, and has since been refining his knowledge and skills in the studio alongside production partner Klaus Christensen.
Kant's debut EP : Burn, Hurt, Touch is now ready and what a debut it is! You would not know these cat's have only been playing with deep house for a few years. Burn kicks off the EP with tight drums, soulful vocal snips and a funky baseline - a wonderful sun-drenched set opener. Hurt takes over and brings the proceedings to moody territory, deep hovering bass, dubby chords and a haunting vocal asking that so familiar question.. Why Does your love Hurt so much? Rounding the EP off beautifully is Touch with its uplifting vocals and arpeggiated synths, headnodding beats all tied together by that baseline, that baseline!!!
Kant is currently working on new material with vocalists from the Copenhagen underground, and is playing in Berlin on December 28th alongside Chris Urban (Exploited Rec).
