Info for Crate Six Seven
Hospital Records proudly presents the debut long-player from the illusive and ingenious Mitekiss. Flirting with an array of drum & bass styles, ‘Crate Six Seven’ inhabits the deeper realms of liquid-jazz, soul and ambient jungle across 14 tracks.
The album’s title track encapsulates the essence of Mitekiss’ well-known style with soothing tones and a hypnotic percussion guiding the track, along with the enchanting ‘Hutan’, with its silky and delicately soft sonics.
Taking a darker turn is the murky apparition, ‘Lenz’ that’s fuelled by the ominous, supernatural vocals of Mr Porter. Embracing the roots of its craft, ‘Human’ takes the form of a vintage amen weapon. It’s dancefloor friendly but doesn’t shy away from the oldskool atmospherics that elevate it to future-classic status.
Mitekiss may have his trademark deep-liquid flair but ‘Crate Six Seven’ cements his versatility with stunning vocal tracks ‘Another Sad Song’ and ‘Viewpoint’, through to the curiously creative ‘Straw Man’. Collaborations with the likes of Emer Dineen, Mr Porter, Naibu and Emeliene Chouadossi highlight the breadth of styles within Mitekiss’s repertoire. With exciting live performance prospects on the horizon this production paragon has exceeded all expectation with what is undoubtedly one of the finest D+B albums of the year.
After 17 years making his way through the scene with a steady stream of delicate, soulful releases on some of D+B’s most formidable labels, we’re very proud to welcome this incredible talent to the Hospital family, Mitekiss!
From the tender age of 15, this London native has been sculpting his sound through the exotic experimentation of other diverse genres that eventually lead him to a steady heartbeat of 170BPM. After the heavy yet steady output of his tracks into the world of D+B, movement on the Mitekiss front began to pick up momentum when ‘Void’, a free track on Skankandbass caught the attention of Shogun Audio head honcho, Friction. This instantly lead to a string of releases across labels such as Shogun, SGN:LTD, Chase & Status’ MTA and more, garnished with support from various acts, including Hybrid Minds on their tear-out UKF mix.
Among an already impressive string of releases, lies his own sublime take on one of London Elektricity’s most widely renowned tracks, ‘Just One Second’, only ever to be officially remixed by the late Apex. A true testament to the dexterity behind his production abilities, his remix is comprised of exquisite vocal manipulation and graceful orchestral work, peppered with subtle percussion – making this a truly worthy retouch of the track’s lineage.
A man of action who currently runs both his own business and co-runs his own label Goldfat Records, we’re very excited to see the what Mitekiss brings to the Hospital family, and the new heights to which he’ll take his sound!
