Kyla La Grange – “The Knife” (New Arcades Remix)
I haven’t held back about New Arcades in the past, they’re a hard-working duo who have now remixed the track “The Knife” by songstress Kyla La Grange. Perhaps I was sleeping when the original came around last month, or perhaps it just felt too slight to stick, and with all things considered her sound changed quite drastically after she travelled to South Africa too- so maybe it should have resonated more? As a native those african drums and kalimbas flowing into her sweet vocal just didn’t quite sit properly for me, but this remix has given the original a second life. A dancehall-electro opening turns it into a punchier sound that suits a title like “The Knife” a lot better.
