St Petersburg artist Kito Jempere has released his new 5 track ‘Akio EP’ on the Dirt Crew Record Label. It is Kito’s first full release after his debut album on Fata Morgana. On the EP are two original tracks along with three remixes, two from Helsinki man Roberto Rodriguez and one from Rotterdam’s Nachtbraker.
Kito sets the tone with up tempo and heavy bass lines throughout his two original mixes, ‘Do You Know Me’ and ‘A Thousand Times’.
Nachtbraker has cut the original mix of ‘A Thousand Times’ to make it his own while Roberto Rodriguez has done two remixes of ‘Do You Know Me’, giving the first track a different feel, an almost jazzy touch with soft percussion, deep bass and smooth melodies. He then changes it up with his 2 Pop 4 Pop Remix, bringing a completely different style to the track with a real poppy disco vibe. It makes the listener want to dance as soon as it starts to play. It is most definitely a more upbeat and energetic remix, a dance floor classic. Together these artists make a truly great EP that Kito Jempere can be proud of. It will be available to buy through Decks Records and Juno Records.
