Single Review: CAii – Back It Up


This remix of Butterfly by London’s Japanese wildflower Mieko Shimizu ticks all the boxes for me. There’s something very 80s synthwave about the driving bassline, complimented nicely by the haunting synths over the top.

Excitement was high when entering the Brighton Centre, completely filled with people ready to see the knees up, tubthumping anthems of the Kaiser Chiefs. The stage was decorated in a way that perfectly summarised the chiefs – pure dystopian joy – and so was their set.  Supporting Kaiser Cheifs tonight […]
