Mind Kyle Letterman and distant light

KYLE LETTMAN and production duo DISTANT LIGHT have teamed up for a Summer fuelled, Garage hit, Mind, released last week.

Earlier this year, KYLE LETTMAN released his remake of Garage classic, Moving Too Fast. Daring to medal with a classic track, the results were fruitful and singer/songwriter received an incredible response across Radio and Online platforms seeing the record being supported across the BBC, Kiss and Capital networks….and it doesn’t stop there. 2015 has been quite the year for Kyle as he also opened the show at Omarion’s UK headline gig at KOKO helped by some serious online support from Pixie Lott!

Kyle isn’t the only one to have made some serious noise of late as production duo DISTANT LIGHT hit the music landscape last year with their official remix of UK RnB singer Angel’s chart-topping track Wonderful. The garage number quickly got the stamp of approval from leading tastemakers DJ EZ from Kiss 100 and BBC 1Xtra’s DJ Cameo. DISTANT LIGHT have worked their production magic on Ellie Goulding’s Beating Heart, Misha B’s Home Run and top 10 single All Cried Out by Blonde. Their recent effort Raggamuffin, was named Song of the Week here on NEW LEASE MUSIC.

It seems this is going to be one solid collaboration; so don’t miss out, have a listen to Mind.

Upcoming Release: Proton – Solsine (ft. Brownie & Santego)

Featuring the haunting vocals of Brownie and rapid fire delivery of rapper Santego, SLOSINE are on the verge of releasing their forthcoming effort Proton. Out on 7th September, the four-and-a-half minute production displays glacial soundscapes setting the backdrop for a noxious mix of garage basslines.

Formed in late 2014, the London-based duo dropped their first single Deeper  in March 2015. The second single Time quickly followed in May, gaining support from DJs Mike Delinquent (Kiss), Charlie Tee, TS7 (Kiss Fresh) and DJ Woody (Capital Extra)​ as well as being​ featured on numerous blogs including EDM.com, Chicago EDM and Insomniac.

Likened to the British electronic producers, Chase & Status, they have performed with NME, Kiss FM, reached No1 on The Hype Machine and remixed for artists including Florence And The Machine under different aliases.

To add to their short but impressive CV, the up and coming producers developed a close-knit group of featured artists and have collectively released with Island Records, Defected and Stealth as well as penning songs for Rudimental’s recent album and supported Laura Mvula and Ella Eyre.

In the last year they have performed at top London venues including Proud, 93 Feet East, The Stillery, Kensington Roof Gardens and South London’s answer to carnival, Brixton Splash.

After supporting acts such as The Smiths, Scroobious Pip and Russell Lissack (Bloc Party) and with a return visit to Ibiza Rocks this summer, 2015 is shaping up to be an exciting year for these beatmasters.

 

Dynamic duo DISTANT LIGHT will be dropping  their new reggae-fused track Raggamuffin at the end of the month.

The producers hit the music landscape last year with their official remix of UK R&B singer Angel’s chart-topping track Wonderful. The garage number quickly got the stamp of approval from leading tastemakers, DJ EZ from Kiss 100 and BBC 1Xtra’s DJ Cameo. Their remix of Alpines No Other Lover was snapped up by Clash and further supported by Pitchfork gaining them further kudos in the musicsphere. 

The two wasn’t afraid to work their magic on Ellie Goulding’s Beating Heart, Misha B’s Home Run and top 10 smasher All Cried Out by Blonde. Now these guys are ready to unleash their insanely Garage-fuelled effort with a heavy dose of reggae, thanks to reggae singer Conkarah.

Raggamuffin is out on 28th August.
