Jungle don Tim Reaper has remixed ‘Kiss It Better’, the collaborative single from Aluna and MK. The platinum-selling stars have also unveiled an acoustic version of the acclaimed original.
Laden with rapid-fire breaks and ethereal breakdowns, Tim Reaper’s remix is a jungle banger made for the dance floor. In contrast, the downbeat, stripped-back acoustic version accentuates the beauty of ‘Kiss It Better’. The original has already racked up more than 4 million Spotify streams.
Aluna is one half of AlunaGeorge and builds upon the UK electronic duo’s sound in a solo context to venture further into eclectic dance-pop territory. She debuted with the 2020s stylistically elastic Renaissance, with follow-up standalone singles ‘Trouble’ and ‘Forget About Me’ appearing in 2021 and 2022 respectively.
Boasting over six hundred million career streams, MK is one of the most idolised figures from the world of dance music. With over 30 years in the game, he is best known for his revered remixes of ‘Push The Feeling On’ by Nightcrawlers and ‘Look Right Through’ by Storm Queen, as well as his platinum-selling global hit ‘17’, which has sold more than one million copies in the UK alone. ‘17’ was preceded by ‘Piece of Me’ in 2016, another platinum-selling record to add to MK’s pile of growing accolades.
East London-born DJ and producer Tim Reaper heads up the Future Retro London imprint. Producing lush yet hard-hitting jungle and breakbeat tracks, his own output has found its way onto labels such as Green Bay Wax, Blu Mar Ten Music, Deep Jungle, and 7th Storey Projects.
