ALBUM REVIEW

Kenz

Hotel Mega

Released March 2018

Bothell-based Kenz is a 17-year-old talent whose family moved here from Indonesia when he was young. He composed every note on Hotel Mega, created all the beats, wrote all the lyrics, sung and produced every track. In a roundtable review, The Blow Up says “the production is fire AF … So different from everything else poppin’ right now. He’s gonna be a buzzing name around here soon.” In an interview in Woodinville Weekly, Kenz describes his unorthodox melodies “Hip hop is a big trend lately. Separate yourself from others by having your own sound.”
