Emerging UK talent Kay Seeyen returns today with a refreshingly original and funky blend of classic soul, disco, and hip hop through new single ‘You’re Mine You’.
“Sampling Gloria Lynn’s 1961 rendition of ‘You’re Mine You’, I made this beat trying to capture a certain groove I’d envisioned before even starting the track. I wanted stripped down open verse sections and a plucky guitar hook that makes you want to dance, with a constant four in the floor thudding kick moving the beat along in a classic disco nostalgic manner. I chopped and manipulated the original sample to piece together an entirely new song, combining beautiful string elements and the strong vocals of Lynn with my own percussion.”
Not only is twenty-year old talent Kay Seeyen shaping up to become part of the UK’s next wave of exciting musical talent, but he’s also studying neuroscience at university.
His release of ‘Pillow Talk’ showcases a lo-fi pop approach to music making and is matched with vivid lyricism that keeps you hooked from the start. On the track, Seeyen says:
“A song I wrote imagining the first night out clubbing after lockdown ends in the UK, and the things that come with a night out – getting into a confrontation with some guy that’s pushing into you on the dance floor, convincing a girl you’ve been getting with to come home with you, and ultimately waking up next to someone you don’t know with a terrible hangover. Being deprived of my student social life for close to a year makes dreaming of simple nights out a good source of song writing for me, and I hope that my excitement and energy for the return of that social life shines through in this song.“
