In this age of “turn up” music, Kero & Azure are here to remind people that there are other sides to hip hop music. Though nearly a generation apart, Kero & Azure share common ground, quite literally in fact. Not only are they both Bay Area natives, but they are each Korean-American rapper/producer/DJ’s that share an interest in vintage analog beats. Kero, an established international artist, contributes his lifelong experience in crafting feel good jazz-infused tracks while Azure, a member of iamsu!’s HBK gang, brings a fresh perspective to the project.
While Kero has recently been producing #1 hit songs in Asia and Azure hails from one of the Bay’s most successful rap crews, neither of them are resting on their laurels. Instead, these Bay rappers rely on a strong commitment to writing clever lyrics and painting vivid pictures with their verses. Leading off the project is their first single titled ”Jazzhop” produced by Kero One. Their mini-album drops in May of 2017.
