Through his authenticity and versatility, RIP Kenny has become one of dance music’s most compelling new voices and is sure to prove himself through his grit.
“Lost is a record that describes a feeling, a moment in the album’s story filled with longing, melancholy, & despair. Stripped of the one you love, you find yourself in a dark woods, alone with a small lantern — running out of oil. Longing and despair give way to frustration and anger as you call out. You hear your love lost return the call in seeming harmony, but not a murmur reaches you— it was all in your head. Hope dwindles as the echo fades, and you’re faced with only piercing silence and the dim glow of unknowing eyes lurking, waiting for you to give up. The feeling of loss overwhelms you, and you drop to your knees beneath a blanket of mist and moonlight. The beasts advance with muffled steps. As you lift your head, you feel your eyes turn red as your resolve steels..” – RIP Kenny
