4s4ki: Killer in Neverland [Victor Entertainment]
Killer in Neverland, the latest from Japanese rapper and singer 4s4ki, is a colorful mashup of pop-punk, electro-pop soundscapes, and melodic rap, with delightfully unhinged song titles like “Sword of Preemptive Attack” and “Ring Ring, You Kill Me.” Killer in Neverland, like all of her music, was written, arranged, and produced entirely by 4s4ki. “My first experience with full-fledged production was during my second year in high school,” the artist recently told Billboard. “At first I just wanted to work behind the scenes as a producer. Unfortunately, none of my friends wanted to sing, so I recorded some temporary vocal tracks. That’s what got me started singing.”
