REVIEW: Kafka Tamura - Find Me Well (Chi Thanh Remix) out on BTMM Rec.

For such a young group to already be armed with this bold artistic vision, there’s no telling where it could take them.’ – Indie Shuffle

After racking up over 15 million streams on their Nylon and Noisey-approved debut, Kafka Tamura resurface with a self-assured new single on 100% Records.

Excited to introduce a new RMX by Chi Thanh who took Kafka Tamura’s distinct artistic vision and original brand of minimalist pop and added a deephouse underground touch to it. Keeping the deepness of the original tune and the brightness of Emma Bradshaws soulful, contemplative vocals.

Taking their name from the protagonist of the surrealist Japanese novel ‘Kafka on the Shore’, they originally formed online as a trio in 2012, when Gabriel Hauser and previous member Patrick Bongers stumbled upon the SoundCloud musings of Emma Bradshaw. Following Patrick’s departure and Emma’s relocation to Berlin, the duo leaned towards a more natural and dynamic sound with the aid of britisch producer Eliot James.

Their otherworldly indie-electronica has received acclaim by the likes of Earmilk, The 405, Indie Shuffle, The Line of Best Fit, Clash and the iconic French label Kitsuné. They undoubtedly live, breathe and play with a 'no boundaries' ethos, and ‘Find Me Well’ marks the start of an exciting new chapter for the band - a new sound, a new setup and a new live show to look out for in 2017.

Chi Thanh has been active in the international club and dance music scene for a while. His work has been featured regularly on BBC Radio 1 UK by Pete Tong and Kolsch. He has recently remixed international artists such as: Booka Shade, Robot Koch, The Disciples, Lana Del Rey, The Do, Metronomy, 2Raumwohnung... and his work has been featured on blogs such as: Deep House Amsterdam, Clash Mag, Pulse, DJ Times, Resident Advisor...

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]One of my very favourite producers and future hero from Berlin Chi Thanh delivers stunning remix on Kafka Tamura magical deep electronica indie dance beauty Find Me Well. His version remains on the same bittersweet atmosphere of the original with strong melancholic dark touches upon the very danceable deep tribal house drums and smooth danceable basslines.  Superb guitar riffs and the haunting sensual voice singing the awesome super catchy lyrics. One of the hottest records for this summer without doubts. Make yourself a favour and discover this secret weapon. #PureGold Love IT[/content]
