Kulateral is a Producer/Songwriter/Artist born and raised out of the jazz district of Kansas City,Missouri. From his training at the famous Charlie Bird Parker Academy to his co-ownership of GH2 Ent LLC this is one artist who definitely thinks outside the box of entertainment. When asked to describe what he thought separated him he replied “It’s not about the bass in your voice It’s about the bass in your actions.”
With all the Autotune and talentless so-called “artists” out there, one would think fans of real vocalists would show a considerable amount of appreciation for Kulateral’s new album, The Swiss Knife Agenda. If you’re not grooving to this, then you are not a true R&B fan and definitely not a Kulateral fan. Additionally, all artists that have stood the test of time changed their delivery and evolved with the constantly changing musical landscape. The vocals remain the same – either you got them or you don’t and most of the acts today don’t!
This album is really out of control. I was so pleasantly surprised that all of the songs were great. It’s hard to choose a favorite, but I must say that I play, “Dro and Rozay”, “Early Bird Special” and “My Girls Friend” over and over and never get tired of listening to it. Kulateral’s collaborations and features on the album also offer a brilliant combination of different, yet unique styles that blend so well together.
The up-tempo and mellow beats and tender singing that Kulateral puts on show here is pure, soulful and demonstrates true talent. He is a real singer true to his craft and truly delivers. Thankfully, I haven’t been tainted with the music of today which the radio continues to repeat: the often non-vocal talentless singers or the over-hyped so-called wanna-be-singers. Radios play’s them as if there is no-one else. And yet there is…namely Kulateral!

Kulateral has delivered an album that is a real fusion of hip-hop flavored pop and edgy R&B and Soul. The Swiss Knife Agenda reflects a new level of creative growth and maturity. The songs on here are addictive and very well produced. Kulateral blends rugged beats with wonderful melodies in a continuous play of music, wonderfully written and performed. This album shows that Kulateral is not just a sensation but a true performer who can switch his voice to do justice to any type of song.
The smooth grooves, hip-hop/R&B tempos and sweet crooning confirm that Kulateral has released a consistent Contemporary Urban album. He has truly stepped into fertile territory boldly presenting his music with a maturity, scope and range, and driven by a blazing purpose and passion. What Kulateral ultimately reveals is a depth and integrity that have largely been absent from contemporary R&B.
There are many other things to be said about this album, but I do recommend listening to this album if you’re into Contemporary Urban music. It’s definitely worth your time!
