Kito, VanJess and Channel Tres team up on the infectious new single “Recap,” released today via Astralwerks. The Australian-born, Los Angeles-based producer has conjured up a soulful, syncopated sliver of pop perfection that suggests when a relationship gets too complicated, it’s time for a “recap” – a return to the beginning and the early joys that first sparked romance. An effortless, imaginative, genre-bending track, “Recap” was written during a magical weekend spent working in Bob Dylan’s legendary Airstream, located at Rick Rubin’s Shangri-La studio in Malibu, CA.
Atop a percolating beat, the crystal clear vocals of acclaimed sister duo VanJess shine, ultimately segueing into a verse from Channel Tres, who promises the ultimate romantic dinner for two at Nobu in his seductive, sumptuous baritone. Download / stream “Recap” HERE.
“Recap” is Kito’s first release since “Follow,” her collaboration with ZHU and Jeremih. Released in August 2020, the song has since amassed more than 10 million combined global streams. Kito talks about her origins and how “Follow” came together during quarantine in this episode of Capitol Royale’s “New Slang” series. Praised as the “ultimate summer club record” by Dancing Astronaut, “Follow” has been remixed by Dillon Francis. Listen to the remix HERE.
Kito made her Astralwerks debut with the single “Wild Girl” alongside Empress Of, which became a top 10 hit at U.S. Dance radio. “Alone With You,” her collaboration with electronic music duo Aluna George, followed in early 2020.
Producer/songwriter Kito developed her distinctive sound while growing up in Australia and later living in London, garnering worldwide notoriety by DJing and releasing music independently.
Growing up between Lagos, Nigeria, and California, VanJess has brought an entirely new take to contemporary R&B, one that pays tribute to ‘90s greats like TLC, SWV, and Aaliyah, while instinctively inciting an inimitable style.
