cozy kev has been a regular addition to our FUXWITHIT Fridays playlist and it’s about time people start taking note. The talented beatmaker has been hinting at his debut project for a few months now, putting out collaborations with a ton of FUXWITHIT favourites such as capshun, chromonicci, and LYNY. From dreamy future beats that transport your soul above the clouds, to knocking trap bops sampling the legendary Ciara and Missy Elliott, the tracks leading up to Complacency have been nothing short of spectacular, which each impressing just as much as the last.
Today, cozy kev looks to take a firm grasp on the beat-making scene with the full release of the collaborative album, Complacency. Aside from ‘interlude,’ which is a beautiful blend of light-hearted drum and bass and future beats, every piece in the 12-track ensemble is a collaboration, ranging in energy but never lacking in quality. About the album, cozy kev states “Throughout the last few years, the lingering feeling of complacency itself has consumed a large part of my spirit and attitude. This album and it’s process is about breaking out of that mental block and celebrating myself and my accomplishments.”
Simply put, Complacency is diverse while seamlessly flowing and carrying a consistent sonic direction. Despite tapping thirteen different collaborators, cozy kev manages to create a cohesive body of work that further attests to the artist’s undeniable mastery of sound. If you’ve only got thirty minutes to listen to music today, do yourself a favour and listen to Complacency from start to finish.
