Premiere: Utah? remixes Kid Smpl

First Listen: Kid Smpl - Blade (Utah? Remix)

We have a remix EP for Kid Smpl forthcoming featuring a strong lineup of Utah?, y y y, Eaves, and SHALT where Purple Tape Pedigree and Astral Plane artists meet Symbols. Hyponik has delivered the first listen of the Utah? remix of "Blade".

Sheffield producer Utah? is no stranger to Symbols, having released the Oxygen EP with them last year. His music injects melodic grime with a dash of rave – specifically the bassline/garage that he grew up on. He’s also got a new EP for Symbols coming later this year, so you should probably watch out for that.

While the original ‘Blade’ is a twisted club take on widescreen R&B, barely a minute and a half long, Utah?’s remix turns this fragment into a full track, somewhere between Mssingno and the glossier end of the Boxed sound. Vocal clips hang in the air like frozen echoes, while the whole thing is underpinned by a spiky bed of sub bass stalagmites. Listen to it below, and also check out Kid Smpl’s YouTube Sessions from last year.
