Kicketsnare: French-Canadian-Japanese Hip Hop

4d + Kicketsnare Cover

Had to give a shoutout to the new release from the French-Canadian duo 4d + Kicketsnare.  One track features my friend Shibito, from the amazing Tokyo group Origami.  I’ve talked and blogged and written a good deal about Origami, and they’re the main focus of my upcoming book on Japanese hip hop.  Shibito has been working in Canada quite a lot lately.

This stuff has a great weird-organic vibe: A little bit goofier than Origami, but you can see how he’d fit in.  Click the pic to check it out.
