Australia's Kito & Reija Lee Picked Up by Mad Decent
Yes, they’re both blonde and shaped like models, and they share a last name, but are they sisters? I’m not a hundred percent sure. The newest addition to Mad Decent’s roster of artists, Australians Kito and Reija Lee, are a DJ/vocal team that bring a previously unseen sexiness to dubstep, both visually and in the style of their sound.
The Lees broke out with a track called “LFO,” less likely an internet era abbreviation and probably referring to the low frequency oscillator, but hey I could be wrong, and maybe you could tell me what you think LFO stands for. The track is pretty crunchy and in a way more radio friendly than some of the super wobbly beats the genre is known for. No doubt these girls got picked up by Mad Decent due to a combination of looking interesting and knowing how to make a sound in the vein of an ever expanding beat style. In short, they’re hot, they produce good music, and there are two of them. Can’t lose.
Kito’s Kito EP dropped at the end of 2010 on Skream’s Disfigured Dubz imprint and featured “LFO” as well as an especially catchy remix of Vaccine’s “Fever.” I’m waiting to hear their first release on Mad Decent in 2011, and so far it’s set up to be a good year for them.
