Kyle Kinch invokes the house music of the ’90s on ‘Electric’
A staple of Gorgon City‘s REALM imprint, Kyle Kinch has unceasingly continued his house takeover in recent years, and 2020 is no anomaly. Following July’s “Forest Whitaker,” which arrived in tandem with the “Space Jump Salute Remix,” is Kinch’s latest, “Electric.”
The track’s title is an apt descriptor of the cut. Drenched in ’90s influence, “Electric” embodies Kinch’s timeless sound, which has often seem him engage classic jazz and disco stylings in the past. Through a modern lens with shadows of retro aesthetics, Kinch envisions the house genre, and his soulful, Aliz Smith-assisted showing is a harkening back to an earlier time in house that blissfully takes place in this present moment.
Speaking on the immediately-enthralling number, Kinch said,
“I’m infatuated with 90’s house music. It was my first taste of this world before I really even knew what it was. Since I started producing, I’ve been trying to capture the echo and essence of
that era. ‘Electric’ is a homage to my earliest sensations of house.”
“Electric” is out now via REALM. Hear the impact below.
Make no mistake—dance music is born from black culture. Without black creators, innovators, selectors, and communities, the electronic dance music we hold so dear would simply not exist. In short, dance music is deeply indebted to the global black community and we need to be doing more. Black artists and artists of color have played a profound role in shaping the sound and culture of dance music and now more than ever, it is necessary for everyone in the music community to stand up for the people that have given us so much. Dancing Astronaut pledges to make every effort to be a better ally, a stronger resource, and a more accountable member of the global dance music community. Black Lives Matter—get involved here:
