1/3

This week is a busy one for me.

I’m excited to do my second performance as part of a new project (Only You Can Reset It) tonight, at The Island, Bristol.

Only You Can Reset it first appeared in October 2013 as part of a pop up record shop, and are returning with a fuller sound and a more developed set.  We are Kayla Painter and Jon Worsley, and we take influence from all the music people.  People have said it sounds like: experimental cheesecake, Modeselector, Thom Yorke, Lakota @ 3am, January never ends so stay indoors and make some sweet music.  Happy with the feedback we have received we’re looking to expand on what we’re doing and you’ll hear more from us very soon.

If your intrigued to hear what KP and Jilk sound like in a lasagne together, come along to the Island tonight.  Its free entry, suggested donation of £3 is welcome but not forced, and its not deemed (even by our social standards) as rude if you don’t want to donate.

You’ll also be delighted to hear some experimental auditory ness from Seth Cooke & Dominic Lash, and Timothy C Holehouse & Raxil4.  Henry Lee Colins (aka Shitmat) has curated the night and will be joining in opening with a half an hour set.

Hope to see you there.

Times as follows:

1800-1830 – Shitmat

1830-1915 – Only You Can Reset it

1930-2000 – Seth Cooke and Dominic Lash

2015-2100 - Timothy C Holehouse and Raxil4

New Bristol Project. 28th Jan @ The Island.

Only you can reset it are Kayla Painter and Jon Worsley.

A joint project between two Bristol based musicians, working with organic and electronic sounds.

The duos live work is largely improvisational and experimental – bringing a range of textures, layers and sounds and churning them into a dizzying mix of genre and form.

New Release, coming soon.

I have just sent off my first track to be mastered today, whilst i’m adding the finishing touches to one of the other tracks.

The new EP is more exciting, current, and fresh (for me) than my last one ever was.  Kayla Painter (2012), seemed like an experiment to me, to see if I could finish some songs, run a launch night, and get my stuff on Spotify.  This project feels very different, it feels like I am releasing something because I have a group of songs that really want to be heard and remixed and enjoyed! Since my last release I have been gradually building a home studio, and I’m now the lucky owner of some grand equipment.

My new home studio set up consists of
KRK Rokit 6 active monitors
iMac
LG monitor
Shure SM58
NI Komplete Audio 6 (soundcard)
DT100 beyerdynamic
EWQL orchestra
Logic Pro 9
Ableton Live 8
NI Komplete 7 (instruments & effects)

It has certainly been an interesting 8 month project, and I’m really excited to push it forward to your ears.  I’d say theres plenty of influence from my favourite musicians, but even more so, Burial, Nicolas Jaar, Steve Reich and Will Wiesenfeld.

Radio Interview , Ujima FM

A while ago back in March, I was invited down to Ujima FM for a radio interview.

Last night was the night booked in, I appeared on the 11 o clock subsession show with presenter Titus 12.  It was actually my first radio interview so I was slightly nervous, I already know how difficult it is to talk about the music you make to people,  but this was another level! It is very difficult to talk about what you do live on air, making sure you get the right words out and you dont end coming off wrong.. seeing as I felt as though it might go horribly wrong, or I might make some new words up on the spot , I think I stepped up to it and actually sounded pretty caszhe ( slang for ‘casual’ term, see Caszhe for full definition).

I got to bring a selection of tunes that I like and inspire me as well as have a little chat about what I do, and then a live mix..So there’s plenty in there for your ears.

You can listen to it here:

Kayla Live on Ujima FM

You can also download it there.

Wicked. Thanks to Ujima FM and titus 12 for having me down really enjoyed visiting and my first radio interview!
