Katy B had many of us bottle-popping and hip-shaking along to her wavy, 90s-style house and garage when she dropped her Mercury-nominated debut album, On a Mission, in 2011. The making of her last album, Little Red, was an ordeal in and of itself, judging by comments at the time. By comparison, her latest album is a tantalising gift to her dance music following.
There’s warm vibrations and a hint of Bernard Edwards basslines on this new track from Miami producer, and Def Jam signee, Jahkoy.
When a humdinger like ‘Swayzae’ comes along, the compulsion to know more about who made it, and what they might do next, can send you on a scavenger hunt across the wild, untamed corners of the web. If only I had such time when I came across this track by Mikoteau, the collective name for Mikkoh and Decoteau, two female DJ/producers from Atlanta.
