Hard Light is the 3rd full length album by the talented jazz musician and composer Kazumi Kaneda. The second release on Inner Ocean Records, the album is as uplifting as it is precise, with fantastic swinging drum arrangements that take masterful piano and guitar arrangements to a world of instant cool. A little bit throwback, a little bit lofi, and a lot of pure feeling, this jazzy hip hop release feels right in a smoke filled lounge or in your car stereo while you cruise toward the sunset. A wildly artistic producer, Kaneda’s Hard Light was produced and mastered entirely by himself in his Tokyo home studio, with the imaginative album artwork also his own.
