Premiere: Kydus – First Contact (Rafa Barrios Remix)


Mid August will see Anthony Attalla’s Detroit born and now Chicago based imprint Incorrect Music release the latest single from Kydus titled, “First Contact” backed with a remix from Spanish Producer, Rafa Barrios.

British producer, Kydus has been releasing material via some of the industry’s leading labels over the past two years such as Toolroom, Suara, Stereo, Circus, Terminal M and the list goes on. His driving tribal grooves coalescing with trademark uplifting synths has allowed him to craft out an original sound that’s been continuously championed by Pete Tong on his world famous Essential Mix on BBC Radio 1.  ‘First Contact’ is the epitome of a “journey” in every sense. Playing more like a full on novel than most of the straight forward tracks-of-the-moment, the song takes on the feel of an epic story while still maintaining a driving and rhythmic approach.

Rafa Barrios was the sole remixer chosen for this project to do exactly what he’s best at; creating a stripped-back drum workout and an amalgamation of his own groove and twisted distortion on the main synth. Added drums give his rendition a more Iberian feel and is already making noise on the White Isle being dropped at the recent Elrow event by Carl Cox.

Kydus – “First Contact” out Friday, August 18th on Incorrect Music.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
