Kito & Reija Lee – “Starting Line”

Hailing from Perth in Australia, and now residing in South London, Kito & Reija Lee are a musical duo with many achievements under their girl power belt.

Beginning their careers as solo artists, the girls saw success originally releasing music via Skream’s Disfigured Dubz, and Diplo’s Mad Decent, with whom they are still closely affiliated with today. Recently, Big Boi’s #MashUpMondays series featured the girls’ Mad Decent release ‘Run For Cover’, and was titled ‘King Sh!t’. This saw the OutKast member rhyming with T.I. and Ludacris over a Kito & Reija Lee track, something that while un-expected, served as an incredible co-sign from one of music’s heavy weights.

The girls have known each other since the age of thirteen. The pair came from different musical backgrounds; however, they found a mutual love in electronic music, with Reija Lee bringing herself away from years of singing in rock and metal bands, and Kito adding a vocalist to a steadily rising solo career as a producer and DJ. As a pair, Kito and Reija Lee are unique, releasing music that speaks volumes in creative license; standing out from the crowd.

With influences ranging far and wide from Kate Bush, M83 and Drake to Ed Rush & Optical and J Dilla, the girl’s catalogue of sound is extensive. Using their varying backgrounds they have been creating phenomenal music that has taken the online world by storm; featuring on the likes of Do Androids Dance, Noisey, Vibe, Okay Player, Wonderland, and XXL. Radio support has been strong, with plays from Skream, B-Traits, Annie Mac and more on BBC Radio One, XFM and Rinse FM.
