Melbourne electronic duo Kult Kyss are back with a captivating new track, ‘So Alive’, produced alongside acclaimed Australian producer LUCIANBLOMKAMP. Created in the depths of lockdown, vocalist Rromarin and producer Haxx have conjured pure magic with ‘So Alive’, creating a hypnotic track that yearns to uplift the spirits of everyone it comes across. ‘So Alive’ is lifted from Kult Kyss’ upcoming debut EP Ultra Sound, set for release in November and also featuring collaborations with the likes of BRUX and Motez.
Kult Kyss explains, “‘So Alive‘ was born in the midst of the pandemic, at a time when things felt incredibly limited and uncertain. The experience of being in lockdown forced us to shift our perspectives from constantly looking towards the future to living fully in the present. ‘So Alive‘ is inspired by this, and explores the magic and beauty that can be found in living in the moment, day by day. In creating the track we wanted to pay homage to early ‘90s dance music, incorporating dusty sampled breaks with euphoric synths and a simple, mantra-like vocal hook. We were also fortunate enough to work with our friend LUCIANBLOMKAMP (who has produced for Khalid & US-rapper 6LACK) on additional production, who brought his signature gritty 2-step sound to the track.”
‘So Alive’ is an extension of the Kult Kyss sound that we’ve come to know and love over the last few years. The pair’s recent releases ‘Kill That Beat’ and ‘God Is A Bassline’ saw high rotation on triple j Unearthed, earning support from Spotify with editorial placements in New Music Friday, New Dance Beats and Top Shelf Electronic. This past year, Kult Kyss also had the opportunity to invite fans into their universe while supporting Running Touch at Sidney Myer Music Bowl, performing live at Meadow Music Festival and joining Motez on triple j’s Mix Up.
Kult Kyss know how to elicit feelings within their audience, and ‘So Alive’ is no different.
