Not surprisingly, Kayobe drew inspiration for his track ‘Sun Don’t Shine’ on a rainy day.
“I came back to my home studio after writing the day off otherwise and started messing around. Eventually I came up with the beat, which was inspired by minimal dark electronic and hip hop influences,” he said in an e-mail.
Kayobe is offering a free stream/download of the track. To download, click on the embedded Soundcloud file. It’s taken from his forthcoming EP.
“After I came up with the beat I met and connected with Olive B. We went through a bunch of beats and ideas the first time we met up. ‘Sun Don’t Shine’ really grabbed her attention so it was the first thing we decided to collaborate on. We wrote the lyrics on the track and her voice ended up being an incredible fit for the style of the song; her character really soared over the minimal nature of the beat,” he continued
