This event is 21 and over
Kan Wakan is Gueorgui Linev, the producer, film composer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist whose critically acclaimed and Billboard-charting music dissolves the genre-breaking electronica of Massive Attack, Air, Bonobo and Zero 7 into a bottomless sea of 20th century minimalism, psychedelic soul and ambient atmosphere.
The upcoming tour follows on the heels of Kan Wakan’s 2 new singles ahead of the new album, ‘I Would’ and ‘Molasses;’ both entering the Top 5 on Hype Machine charts and garnering significant airplay on BBC Radio 1 & 6, as well charting in the Top 10 on CMJ stations across the country. ‘Molasses’ in particular has sparked tremendous buzz, named “Today’s Top Tune” by KCRW, the track was synced on Oprah’s OWN Network show ‘Queen Sugar,’ aired Nov. 30th, and was licensed for a Dior Spring/Summer Ad.
2017 will mark a new chapter for the LA-based Bulgarian-born musician who was recently named in the LA Weekly as "one of the top 10 young songwriters in Los Angeles". Having produced and worked with the likes of Moses Sumney and Thundercat and scored his first feature film “Dead Draw”, it was time to incorporate a few collaborations of his own. With triple LP ‘Phantasmagoria’ soon on the way, Kan Wakan’s upcoming work incorporates guest vocalists and collaborations into an immersive melding of organic and electronic production mixed in with the orchestral flourishes of the Sofia Philharmonic orchestra.
The upcoming new album is rounded out with Kan Wakan’s signature cinematic soundscapes that explore the space from where ‘Moving On’ left off.
