A jack of all trades, Kosa’s ability to produce and songwrite allowed his hip hop influences to effortlessly blend with the sounds he was group up around like soca, reggae, dancehall and more. The result, a hypnotic blend of melodies and production that seamlessly fits into the current musical landscape.
