Kult Kyss serve glitchy goodness with their carefully curated guest mix
After delivering one of my personal favourite reworks of the ever classic ‘Chase The Sun’ by Planet Funk, KULT KYSS have continued their run of innovation and electronic discovery with a new single.
The Melbourne duo have just dropped ‘Chi Cup’, the perfect mix of off-kilter electronica served with a serene dose of pop creativity. It’s the perfect balance between club and pop, and is such a refreshing take on a sound that I don’t think I’ve heard anything like here in Australia.
The single juxtaposes blaring kicks, barking dog samples and staccato percussion with Rromarin‘s silky smooth vocals and a chime-like melody. It finds the middle-ground between ethereality and rhythm and in a way that doesn’t feel obvious too. You can absolutely tell that both Rromarin and Haxx have been super selective in the way that they approach each aspect of this song, and the meticulous nature of it becomes more evident with each listen.
The duo have just finished up a massive national tour with The Presets in support of their new record Hi Viz, and I’ve got to say that felt like the perfect choice. Both duo’s seem to be on the same wavelength when it comes to creating forward-thinking, highly technical electronic music that also manages to be fantastic pop music too.
We decided it was about time we got them to put together a guest mix for our radio show on FBi Radio, and they’ve delivered something that feels really in step with what they’ve been delivering. The mix ebbs and flows, kicking off with the highly percussive, deep electronic sounds of Maribou State, working through the highly recognisable vocals of Roisin Murphy as she sings over a dissonant, yet cohesive mix from DJ Koze and ending with some epic, deep cuts from Innellea.
You can catch the mix below, or tune into our radio show this Saturday from 5-6pm on FBi Radio to hear it live. Turn your dial to 94.5 DAB+ if you’re in Sydney, or tune in anywhere at fbiradio.com.
