Kokophonix is a R&B/alt/hiphop project based in Toronto. Niko Hook, the creator, bass player, beat maker, and producer is a half-Swedish-born-in-England-grew-up-in-Spain human. Kokophonix's co-songwriting comes by way of Japan, from Ayaka Kinugawa. The project features collaborations from talented artists across the globe.
Amer Alkhatib (CBC) called out Kokophonix on SYNTH (Songs You Need To Hear); “A throwback to '90s pop and a nod to disco, this dancey jam [The Edge] from Toronto’s Kokophonixcomes in advance of the producer’s debut album, which is expected this October. Despite a moody and modestly paced start, the track picks up with help from cleverly produced beats, rap verses by veteran PhattAl, and backing vocals by Dana Jean Phoenix. What is in Toronto’s water that’s making its hip-hop and R&B scene so damn good?”
