Born in Bulgaria and currently based in Los Angeles, Gueorgui Linev’s rising experimental pop project Kan Wakan has incredible promise. The composer and producer’s newest single, “I Would,” is the most recent in a series of collaborations with vocalist Elle Olsun, following the success of tracks like “Molasses.” Her powerful chops and sensual jazz hooks tie together all the evocative ideas Kan Wakan puts forth in his music. His productions are grandiose, groovy, and boast a regal kind of swagger. “I Would” and “Molasses” will be included in Kan Wakan’s forthcoming and highly ambitious triple LP, Phantasmagoria. Stream the psychedelic jazz pop joint below.
