Today, Melbourne-based artist & producer Memphis LK releases a new remix of her latest single ‘Letters In Concrete’ by acclaimed UK producer Lee Walker. Here, Walker transforms the sparkling pop track into skittering, club-ready garage, complete with wobbly basslines and chopped up vocals. It’s a remix made with the finesse that earned Walker Annie Mac’s ‘Hottest Record In The World’ on BBC Radio 1 and ‘Future Anthem’ for his edits at Beatport.
To celebrate the release, Memphis LK will join triple j as their guest DJ for their coveted Friday Mix. Tune in to triple j tomorrow at 2PM AEDT as Memphis performs an exclusive mix of her favourite local artists.
Released last month, ‘Letters In Concrete’ sparks a new euphoric-pop direction for Memphis LK. Packed with powerful lyricism, dreamy synths and danceable lo-fi breaks, the track received support from triple j and claimed the #1 most played track across national community radio. Mixed by UK engineer Dave Emery (Madonna, Bjork, Sam Smith) and with additional production from Running Touch, this release signifies an artist staking her claim as a dance-pop force to be reckoned with.
‘Letters In Concrete’ is Memphis’ second official release for 2020, following on from ‘Green Light’, which landed her in the triple j Unearthed ‘5-star club’ with the second highest star rating from presenters, as well as additions to Apple’s New Music Daily and Midnight City playlists.
Memphis fell in sync with electronic music in her late teens, teaching herself Ableton and eventually combining early soul, pop and RnB influences with her love of underground UK garage, 2-step and breakbeat. 2020 has seen her rise to the BIGSOUND 50, top of Emerging Artists on TikTok, named triple j Unearthed Feature Artist, land the cover of The Sun-Herald’s “Ones To Watch” feature andperform live at Pitch Music & Arts Festival,Loch Hart Music Festival and Isol-AID.
