Info for Recalibrations, Vol. 1

Aussie soul-rockers Hiatus Kaiyote new project features remixes of certain songs from their 2015 album Choose Your Weapon, including this remix to “Laputa.”

Taylor McFerrin and Anderson .Paak provide the rework for this already wavy track. McFerrin applies his talented keyboard and production work to give the song a jazzier sound, while Anderson. Paak slides through for a typically excellent verse to close out the song. It’s unclear if the added drum work towards the middle is also .Paak’s.

Hiatus Kaiyote are using the “Laputa” remix to promote a series of summer tour dates. Check those out below to see if the Melbourne band is coming to a city near you.

Hiatus Kaiyote
are future soul. Based in Melbourne, the four-piece fuses neo-soul, hip-hop, future beats along with flavours of Latin, dubstep and opera, all presented with a cinematic sheen.

The band formed in mid-2011, and ever since, they have been racking up accolades, including a listing in the Who’s Hot 2012 feature in Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Festival Magazine. Their debut release, Tawk Tomahawk, peaked in the Top 10 played Albums on KCRW in June, 2012. The band has shared bills with Brainfeeder’s artists, Taylor McFerrin, Lapalux and oOoOO, Warp legends Chris Clark and Harmonic 313, sound genius Robin Fox, and they have already been featured at Woodford Folk Festival (2011/12) and The Melbourne International Jazz Festival (2012).

Led by enigmatic songwriter, vocalist and guitarist Nai Palm, who has created intricate compositions, rich with colour and mystery, both of this world and of worlds unseen, demonstrating compositional and performance abilities that are well beyond her 23 years. Rounding out the band’s line-up are three of Melbourne's finest and most versatile musician/producers.

Keyboardist Simon Mavin, is an established player in the jazz, soul and Latin industry, who has appeared at one time or another backing international artists including Syl Johnson and Booker T. Jones, and played keys for Australia’s largest dub-reggae group, The Red Eyes Australia’s. He is currently playing with the world- renowned soul group The Bamboos. Paul Bender on bass, laptop and guitar is a graduate of University of Miami’s prestigious jazz program, and was a key part of that city’s indie, experimental and improvised music scenes, with a passion for stank-funk basslines. Drummer Perrin Moss is a powerhouse of beats both jilted and slick and an experienced MC, producer, percussionist and DJ in his own right. These three have been able to fully realize Nai Palm’s songwriting in ways she never imagined.

TAWK TOMAHAWK, marked the band’s debut, released independently in April, 2012, it has received international attention. The 10 track EP, almost all of which was recorded and mixed in the band’s home in Melbourne, showcases the breadth of the band’s expertise as musicians and attention to detail in the complex arrangements. Ultimately, through the musicians’ symbiosis, they have created an innovative and rare sound, unique in every way.

Adding to the excitement is the fact that the band has already sold copies of their EP in the thousands with no marketing budget. The band has already achieved big successes from sold out performances (400+) in Melbourne to upcoming festival dates throughout Australia in fall, 2012, to the worldwide group of fans that are amassing exponentially in support of the band. When you add in the transcendent music the band is creating for their follow-up LP, expect to hear a lot more from Hiatus Kaiyote.
