Kick Snare And An Idea Part 3
Released: 27th Jan, 2014
Label: Tru Thoughts
The third single from Ty's “Kick Snare & An Idea” series is upon us, bringing more new music, plus remixes from DJ Spinna and a host of other top producers. “Kick Snare & An Idea Part 3” is out on 20th January on Tru Thoughts.
Part 3 opens with the brand new track “It's All Right”, a classic uplifting Ty joint with deep yet quirky lyrics. A song with a message that can be applied to anyone and everyone, as Ty explains, “It's for those situations where you need to hear 'It's alright... It's not so bad... It's not great but it's not the end of the world' - it's something that I need to hear constantly!”
Co-produced by Ty and his regular studio comrade Drew Horley, with assistance from Akwasi (whose fingerprints appear on previous Ty releases including a remix on his “Emotions” single); “It's Alright” bumps along on a warm bassline, Ty's trademark playful genre blending apparent as it veers into progressive territory with a stirring, snaking and scintillating synth outro. Ty's steady flow is joined by additional vocals from Sharlene Hector.
Much to Ty's delight, the legendary DJ and producer Spinna also came on board for this release, bringing a new remix of “Knock Knock”, one of the most popular cuts of the whole “Kick Snare...” project, which has been hailed by many as the laid back party jam of the year. The irresistible “Knock Knock (DJ Spinna Beyond Real Remix)” lures the track into a spacey and leftfield, late-night territory. Look out for more remixes from a host of talented producers, to be revealed ahead of the release.
