Adelaide singer-songwriter Jess Kent has been making waves over the past couple of months with her hit debut single Get Down which led her to perform at Sydney’s New Year’s Day Festival, Field Day, and praised by the likes of Coldplay and Will.I.Am. This time she has teamed up with Gold Coast producer Paces, for his track 1993 (No Chill), which is the first track released off his upcoming debut album Vacation. Paces is known for his intoxicating tropical beats with top 2015 tracks, Nothing’s Forever featuring Kučka and Hold It Down with Reija Lee. The pair seem to be a match made in heaven with Kent’s lyrics and vocals being likened to M.I.A. and Paces’ trop-infused production inspired by M.I.A.’s early work.
Their tropical house track, 1993 (No Chill) is energetic and fun, with urban beats and a perfect amount of punch. Kent’s electro-pop vocals are the perfect mix of bubbly and sassy, with a catchy chorus that I’m sure will be stuck in your head all summer long. Her vocals are paired with Paces’ upbeat production, with fresh synths and reggae hand claps.
To celebrate the release of 1993 (No Chill), Paces also announced that he's hitting the road next month for his national Ship To Shore tour, which will be setting sail in Adelaide on the 19th of February - more information here. 1993 (No Chill) is an absolute summer jam that will place Kent and Paces in the forefront of Australia’s electro-pop music scene.
