Having released their latest EP Are You With Me? via Nettwerk Records earlier this month, rising Brighton-based quartet Kudu Blue have shared a hi-octane remix of the title track from pioneering UK producer DJ Zinc.
Blending drum ‘n’ bass sensibilities with a hypnotic 2-step garage tempo, the song is about the tentative first stages of a relationship as singer Clem’s soulful vocal hooks takes centre-stage. DJ Zinc has increased the tempo with his unmistakable remix, turning it into a straight up breakbeat heavy, underground clubland smash.
Are You With Me? EP is collection of 6 songs which present a band untethered to one genre, rather the sound of Kudu Blue is a specific atmosphere: a tone, a feeling. It’s that thing you’re going to put on when the laptop swings your way at the after-party. Best enjoyed with friends, or even in those intimate moments when you’re thinking about someone close, wondering how they feel, what they mean to you, and what life is all about.
DJ Zinc also jumps effortlessly between musical genres in a career which has spanned 20 years, working with the likes of DJ Hype, Chase & Status, Dynamite MC, Carl Cox and loads more. The DJ & producer is one of few artists who can claim to have had genuine underground and commercial success across house, breakbeat, UK garage and D’n’B, selling one million + records across his own productions and labels. He first broke through with ‘Super Sharp Shooter’ in the mid 90’s, a classic jungle track that helped to lay the foundations for the nascent D’n’B scene and establish himself as a vital player in UK dance music.
Kudu Blue will be playing a headline Brighton, UK show on 21st October at The Green Door Store. Tickets available here.
