Product Code:KITTO004

A1: Low Ceilings (Mala Remix)
A remix by Mala , who has made a name for herself as a pioneer in the dubstep scene. Centered around complex percussion, the combination of a heavy bassline, percussive electric piano, voice sampling, and creeping low-pitched vocals creates a somewhat sinister atmosphere. The song has a minimalist overall impression, but has some cool arrangements throughout.

A2: Washed in You (Wu-Lu Remix feat. Lex Amor)
This song was remixed by Wu-Lu , an artist who is breaking new ground in UK alternative rock, and features rapper Lex Amor . Wu-Lu 's heavy beat and dark bass are melancholy intertwined with Lex Amor 's signature poetry reading-like singing rap.

B1: Learning Lessons (Shy One Remix)
A remix by Shy One , a project by Mali Larrington-Nelson , daughter of legendary DJ Trevor Nelson . The jazzy, soulful original is transformed into pitch-black experimental techno/house that skillfully utilizes Andrew Ashong 's floating vocals.

B2: To Your Heart (Gavsborg Remix feat. Shanique Marie)
The remix was created by Gavsborg , a core member of the Jamaican avant-garde production unit Equiknoxx , and features singer Shanique Marie , who is well known for her work with Equiknoxx . The EP concludes with a song that recreates the original with a soulful and well-honed New Jamaican sound.

While showing respect for the original music created by Kaidi Tatham , a legend in the UK jazz crossover scene, we hope you enjoy this work, which creates contrasts by shining light on each of the artists who symbolize the current UK scene from different angles. Please check it out.
