UK artist and producer Kyan has had a successful start since the release of his debut EP in 2014 'The Purple Experiment’ leading hm to tour with critically acclaimed trio, London Grammar, and had a series of collaborations with the likes of Duke Dumont, electro-pop king Madeon, Benga and Knox Brown, and racked up over 7 million Spotify streams.
Now Kyan recently dropped his captivating pulsating R&B lush new single “Like Summer” backed with "Nothing Beyond". The idea all began from tapping out a beat on his midi keyboard with the mic across the room. The beat was so captivating, he kept it in the track and began to layer it with some of Kontakt’s Scarbee Vintage Keys and Novation’s Bass Station II in Logic. The next day Kyan added the Seaboard Block to his record allowing him to be expressive, modulate, and explore new dymanics in real time which he said “it was particularly inspiring whilst creating a track. As a singer, in the same way I would use vibrato or pitch bends to convey emotion, I want the same ease of possibility with my instrumentation.”
“Like Summer” is a strong track that builds and Kyan is excited to share the stems with you to be inspired and remix your own version. Are you ready to collaborate on this fresh track?
