Zimbabwe-born musician Downtown Kayoto stuns with his latest effort ‘Lite.’

Zimbabwe-born Hull UK-based musician Chiko Chinyadza (Downtown Kayoto) returns with his latest addition to his upcoming EP, Learning In Public. Produced by frequent collaborator, New York-based Jack Laboz (María Isabel, Alice Longyu Gao), ‘Lite’ oscillates between bouncing house, trap, and UK Grime – with Downtown Kayoto noting the impact of Kaytranada and Skepta on its creation, all the while maintaining his own unique style and potent delivery.

Speaking more on the track’s lyrical inspiration behind ‘Lite,’ Downtown Kayoto said:

“Lite is a song about fomo and feeling so slumped to a point in which you start doubting yourself and your own capabilities. During a year that I took a break from my studies to pursue music properly, I was in the house so much. I thought when I put school on pause the music would just naturally flourish and things would just work with all of the effort I had put in prior…but that wasn’t what happened, there was more work to be done. Reinvention and growth. This song was birthed from this frustration as well as greed. I still have so much going for me but in this song I allowed myself to vent.”

Downtown Kayoto’s new EP Learning In Public is out July 6th via Other Projects. Downtown Kayoto’s new single ‘Lite’ is out now. watch the video below.
