An artist whose music pulses with the energy of a ballroom in full flow, Kiddy Smile’s career has gone stratospheric since he made his debut on Defected in 2016 with ‘Let A Bitch Know’. A record embedded in the dance rituals and traditions of the scene in which Kiddy is an influential character, the track snapped with the energy of dancer voguing and expressing themselves on the dancefloor. Now he makes his debut on Glitterbox as two of his records are remixed by three of the hottest names in house and disco.
Traversing the worlds of music and fashion, working with the houses like Balmain, Balenciaga and Alexander Wang, it seems fitting that a fellow star of both worlds, Honey Dijon, would now remix his Defected debut for the labels’ disco counterpart. Adapting the instinctive danceability of Kiddy’s original, Honey brings her distinctively bold and hedonistic style to the ballroom inspired cut, producing a remix destined for the darkest recesses of the dancefloor. As well as a brand new Club Mix from Kiddy himself, this package also features two remixes of his second Defected release ‘Teardrops In The Box’, adapted for Glitterbox’s disco-tinged sound. Up first, rising star of the London underground Alex Virgo delivers his mix, with an infectious bassline, jacking beat and shimmering, atmospheric builds ready to conjure wild energy on the dancefloor. Closing out the release, US duo Gettoblaster deliver their gloriously frenzied mix, with looping horns and swirling synths to boot.
'Let A Bitch Know / Teardrops In The Box (Remixes)' are out on Glitterbox on 21st August, available to pre-order on Friday 7th August.
