Indie-pop star Caitlyn Scarlett, unveils an exclusive remix of new track ‘Happy When’ by rising Afrowave/dancehall producer Miko Waye. Taken from her forthcoming EP Red Tape, Vol. 2 due 2018, Miko Waye adds his own distinctive flavour to ‘Happy When’, infusing well structured percussions and uplifting kalimbas, showcasing the Berlin native’s African heritage that perfectly supports Caitlyn’s emotional vocal performance.
Caitlyn details the remix:
“I get a lot of people sending in remixes of my songs but when I heard Miko’s one it immediately caught my attention. It gives a whole new flavour to the original!”
"Happy When" is a continuation of a career full of promise. Born and raised in a small village called Bray, Caitlyn started writing her own songs at the age of nine. Following the acclaim of her previous EP ‘Red Tape, Vol 1’ earlier this year, Caitlyn garnered support from the likes of Clash, Wonderland, The 405, Huw Stephens, Radio X and BBC Introducing. Having already amassed over 6 million streams on Spotify, the young singer-songwriter finds herself collaborating with producers and artists such as MNEK, Shakka, DJ Dahi (Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Big Sean), MelO x (Beyoncé) and Levi Lennox - (M.I.A, Krept & Konan, Zayn Malik).
A self-taught guitarist and pianist raised in a musical household, she left home at seventeen for the bright lights of London, a move that looks to have paid off in spades as Caitlyn becomes one of the UK’s hotly anticipated acts for 2018.
