CHRIS GEMINI jumps into today’s hotspot and carries on the weekend vibe with another gritty house/EDM joint, ‘Crazy For Your Love’, out now on all download/streaming sites.
2018 has been a heat wave of a year for the Jamaican-born/London-based DJ and producer: taken from his EP ‘Je Ne Sais Quoi’ (ranked #8 on NEW LEASE MUSIC’s Top Ten Albums of 2018) tracks ‘I Be Missing You’ and ‘Imperfection’ amass over ten million streams and downloads worldwide.
The featured track serves as the B-side for single release ‘I Can Feel Your Love/Crazy For Your Love…why not check it out below…and if you’re REALLY feeling this, keep your eyes peeled out for Chris’ upcoming album, scheduled to drop later this year.
Previously featured tracks, ‘Just A Kiss’ and ‘Always Been This Way’ have set a curious tone for KIT RICE‘s brand new album entitled ‘Konfidence’, released on Monday (25th June).
I was very privileged to be invited to Kit’s album release launch party on Monday at London’s 229 The Venue Club and I gotta say this newcomer’s – along with the backing singers – well-poised vocals has compelled me even more to the eight-track collection.
‘Konfidence’ certainly matched the full-on confidence of the live performances I witnessed, by kicking off with a boisterous sound of the UKG scene, before offering up more club filling makeovers of the original R&B/soulful offerings, ‘Always Been This Way’ and ‘Just A Kiss’, with the help of producers Operator S and DJIMON.
The combination of that UKG vibes and smooth R&B offers the perfect balance throughout the album, topped off by the 2017 Voice contestant’s soulful vocal which effortlessly flows between the two genres.
With this pretty neat set, KIT RICE firmly holds onto the title as one of the most exciting and promising artists that the UK has seen in a very long time…

GEMINI CHRIS is back with another body of work, this time taking in the shape of ‘Minute Hour’ which is far cry from his nostalgic EP, ‘Je Ne Sais Quoi?….’
In this five-track set, the London-based DJ exchanges the full-on techno house, heavily influenced from the late eighties and early nineties, for something bang up to date. From the beginning, you’re introduced to the vibrant presence of the overtones of tropical pop, which take centre stage, with a semi-breezy electronic bassline serving as a perfect backdrop.
Perfect for those summer days in the party land of Ibiza, ‘Minute Hour’ displays Chris as an multi-talented DJ who refuses to be pigeonholed to particular style of house music.
Looking forward to his next move…check him out below:
