Kito & Reija Lee
FACEBOOK – TWITTER – SOUNDCLOUD
Scouted by Skream, like daughters to Diplo, Annie Mac’s mad on ‘em… said tastemakers know a killer collaboration when they hear one, and they heard it between producer Kito and vocalist Reija Lee, two London-based Perth girls (and real life best mates) who’ve been smashing it on the international club scene.
They’re a match made in collab heaven: Kito’s smart, creative beats take rhythmic influence from dubstep, with a slight nod to D & B; but without being too tightly wound to either genre, while Reija Lee’s warm, transformative vocals traverse the spectrum, from pop-catchy to dark and brooding. The girls’ sophomore release, EP II, is out now (see below for media download link), with all the tracks produced and mixed by Kito and all vocals written and sung by Reija.
Their breakout track ‘Sweet Talk’ was featured heavily in the Victoria’s Secret campaign in 2010 and Trinidad James co-opted it for his always party starting ‘Female$ Welcomed’.
