Zimbabwe musician Downtown Kayoto releases his first single of 2022 ‘In2you.’

Victoria Falls-born musician Downtown Kayoto has released his first new music to be heard since his widely praised 2021 EP NAVIG8. Produced by Frankie Scoca (Dreamer Isioma, Lo Village) Downtown Kayoto’s latest track combines elements of UK garage, with lush, agile R&B.

Discussing the track’s lyrical inspiration, he said:

“‘In2you’ is a song about affection, love, crushes, and everything in relationships. I wanted to talk about nuances in past situationships that I and many other people have experienced too. At the end of the day, this shit is hard. Dating is a nightmare and when you think you’ve found the one, there’s always this thing of “I like you but…” and “I want to be with you but…” but what? Right person wrong time? Past trauma? It’s not me it’s you? So I made this song in response to the emotional unavailability – ‘l love you baby but I’m through.'”

‘In2you’ is out now via London label Other Projects whose roster includes London DIY collective NiNE8, Dublin alternative rapper KhakiKid + more.

More new music from Downtown Kayoto will follow in 2023.
