Late October will see hotly tipped producer and DJ Kalyde pair up with Youth to deliver Good Life via Skint Records, accompanied by South London Ordnance remix.

Richard Main aka Kalyde’s career has come up leaps and bounds in the last year with his releases on Kerri Chandler’s MadTech Records, remixes for Lost, ALiVE, and of course Skint Records, earning him a highly praised reputation amongst the likes of BBC Radio1’s Monki, Darius Syrossian, Gerd, Loco Dice and Mr.G.  Here Richard pushes on with a new EP, returning to Skint following his remix of label-head Fatboy Slim’s ‘Star 69’.

The title track ‘Good Life’ kicks off the EP and features vocalist Youth, Kalyde treats us to his typically raw production style here with lo-fi weighty rhythms, dubby stab sequences, tension building strings and a meandering bass groove running alongside Youth’s infectiously catchy vocal stylings. Lauded Techno producer South London Ordnance steps up to rework ‘Good Life’ next and reshapes the original number into a chuggy, ever unfolding number fuelled by arpeggio bass, soaring pad lines and his signature robust rhythmic style.

Last up to complete the package is ‘Last Seven’ which sees Kalyde fly solo to deliver an ever-blossoming seven minute composition gradually unfolding with vacillating vocal murmurs and modulating synth stabs wandering around upfront drums and an acid tinged bass hook in the tracks latter stages.
