‘Vantablack Hearts’ isn’t necessarily about the inherent darkness that can be found within every person, but the potential to overcome it. Even vantablack – the darkest color in existence – can only absorb about 99% of light, which means that there is light even in the pitch black darkness. There is hope for every heart.
Hungarian Synthwave producer from Budapest, Kenshiro+ has been featured here before with his first single Vengeance Preparations. Now he’s back with an EP, Vantablack Hearts. As much as with his previous work, it’s inspired in 80s graphic novels, “The name comes from the classic 80s Japanese comic book, Fist of the North Star”. The best part of Kenshiro’s work is for sure his sound design, with his distorted lead bass, on his colourful riffs and with his aggressive mix. His work is a must for Synthwave fans. I’d recommend the full EP, Even a Devil does justice to its name, ending beautifully with Urameshi, a track that would make Yusuke happy.
