He describes his music as “Groovy Future & Bass House,” which fits rather well, as many of his songs have a futuristic element to them. Steff Da Campo recently collaborated with KDH on a fresh new song released in February.

Music Review — Kanpai
This new release on Spinnin’ Create is heavy on the funky, groovy, and futuristic components and has a lively, upbeat, and catchy tune. Starting strong on the vocals, with just a hint of eeriness creeping in the background, the song quickly gives way to the drums and synthesizers that carry the song the rest of the way through.
Kanpai has a “club” vibe to it — the ones that make you want to get up and groove to the music. It’s the perfect piece for a nightclub.
The song has quickly gained traction on both Spotify and YouTube, with almost 9,000 listens on Spotify and over 1,700 streams on YouTube. The song has gained comments such as “Steff da Campo and KDH on Spinnin’ Create! This is a creative banger, better than ‘Home’ and ‘PAPASITO’ :)” and “Absolute sick ,” as fans are thrilled about this collaboration.
Kanpai is a fabulous way for both artists to start out 2023, and with music that is grabbing attention and drawing in crowds across the globe, expect to see more from both of these artists before the year is over. The only way for them to go from here is up!
