So, January is shaping up to be a pretty amazing month for UK music, and we can’t wait to launch our first podcast of the year next Monday. As a little preview, we have an amazing premiere for your guys in the form of Manchester based duo Mica & Kardanski. Although their names may not be known, the super soulful partnership are Mica Miller, the songwriter and vocalist formerly of Red Sky Noise, and producer Sean Mbaya aka Kardanski, also of genre defying Kid British.
Sparkz, of Mouse Outfit and many a UK gem, turns his hand to remixing duties of this nugget of soul. We asked Mica how the collaboration came about:
“Sparkz is one of the people on the Manchester scene I’ve personally wanted to work with for a while, and Sean (Kardanski) has always been a fan of his too. We felt like he’d be an ideal producer to work with on the remix – someone that could put their own spin on the track and still maintain the Hip Hop/Soul influences that are at it’s core. He definitely lived up to our expectations”.
Following in the footsteps of many soul luminaries, the duo are set to support Mouse Outfit on the 30th January, Mica explains more…
“We’re doing our first live show at the end of January so for the last three weeks I’ve been working on the backing vocal arrangements with four amazing singers. Having all the harmonies performed live is something I’ve always wanted to do so it’s a big milestone for me”.
We really suggest you not only checking out the premiere below, but also taking a little time to google, tube, and cloud the musical compradres, you won’t be disappointed!
Before we go, the production arm of M&K explains the duos plans for 2016 –
“Our plan for this year… we’re working on our next two releases for 2016 and we really just want to spend some more time writing, exploring our influences and developing as a duo. We’ll be releasing our 2nd single in the next couple of months and announcing more live shows soon too”.
SO, without further a do, Wordplay Magazine are very proud to present – Mica & Kardanski – Trouble (Sparkz Remix), released on MUK Records today.
