Record Store Day 2014
KingCats – Down In California (Psychemagik & Albion Edits)
The west coast cosmic vibe of KingCats ‘Down In California’ was one of the highlights of 2012’s Magik Cyrkles compilation with an edit cut by Albion.
Now the track has been reworked by album compilers Psychemagik who kick up the drums and extend the parts purely for the dancefloor. This limited edition 12” includes both edits and has been pressed exclusively for Record Store Day with hand numbered sleeves and artwork by Luke Insect.
“When we first spoke to Albion about licensing the KingCats for the Magik Cyrkles compilation we always talked about doing an exclusive 12” package. This is a track that doesn’t really need to be messed with too much, we loved the piano intro and wanted to extend that a bit to lull you into a different space before the track really kicks in.
This magical song really speaks for itself so all we did was add a subtle kick and snare for a little extra dancefloor punch and extend the outro for Dj’s. For the artwork we wanted to find imagery that really encapsulates that unique Californian energy and we’re really proud of this release for Record Store Day.”
