Premiere: Hikari – Memories feat. Kaii
The advent of a new label is always an exciting affair – it presents to the producers a new platform to ply their trade and to its listeners, a new perspective in their music experience. The launch of brand new label RecPlay Records sees the same hype around it. The Netherlands based imprint launches today and plans to break the tyranny of genre nomenclature and aims to do so with ‘discography of records that is diverse’. In forwarding that aim, the record label’s debut release is in the shape of sublime dub-step single titled ‘Memories’.
Featuring rising producer Hikari, who also goes by his White Zoo moniker, and fellow countrywoman and musician Kaii, the two Germans explore the extent of their innovation in this seminal debut track. Sumptuous break-beat detailing, infectious vocal work and drop that is smooth flowing and satiating to the listener, ‘Memories’ is certainly an adept production from the ever learning Mannheim Popakademie student. In so far as ‘Memories’ marks the first steps for Hikari and RecPlay Records, the track as a blueprint to the coming future only promises a stellar career for all parties.
