Step into My Life
Sees a start-studded cast of musical talent – Duchy on vocals, Ben Hadwen on Flute, Jessica Lauren on Fender Rhodes and Simbad on synthesiser. A soulful fusion remix with funky baselines produced by Boston-based, Japanese musician U-Key a Berkley scholar who has played with legends such as George Duke and De La Soul, and Tokyo-based producer Kez YM, the first Japanese producer to attend the Red Bull Music Academy (2007) with EPs releases from 4lux and Yore. Another remix is produced by Derby-based Christo. His minimalistic deep house remix and dub will make dancers throw serious shapes on the dance floor.

Life Is Like A Spiral
Features Christophe Richards who used to be a member of the legendary The Drifters (A Long-lived American R&B vocal group from 1950’s onwards) and Kay Suzuki’s long time musical partner Ben Hadwen on Flute and Baritone Sax. Remixes are by Kez YM’s with his Detroit house stamp, and by fresh Tokyo talent Ryo Kawahara’s classic broken beats rework.
