From Acid Jazz to House, Hiatus Kaiyote & DJ Spinna Are Breathing Underwater (Audio)
Much like Brand New Heavies and Jamiroquai before them, Australia’s Hiatus Kaiyote bring a special brand of Acid Jazz and Soul to the table. Under the guidance of label chief Salaam Remi (The Fugees, Nas, Amy Winehouse, Miguel, Usher), the group is quickly becoming an intercontinental sensation.
In March, they released their single “Breathing Underwater,” which leveraged the lush instrumentation afforded to a talented multi-piece band. For the remix, they’ve turned to veteran producer DJ Spinna (Little Brother, J-Live) and he’s transformed the song into a soulful House jam. Check it out.
