TUNE Kokiri - Walk On Water
Perfect Havoc welcomes back Liverpudlian DJ & producer Kokiri with his brand new single Walk On Water. Signed officially to Perfect Havoc for a multi-single deal, Kokiri first made his appearance on the label back in 2016 with Chasing which saw multiple spins from BBC Radio 1 and KISS FM and achieved over 1.8 million streams globally, this led Kokiri to signing to Armin Van Burran’s label Armada Music which entailed multi releases such as Joy, Pyramids, Faith In Love, Friends, Adolescence, The Vibe and most recently ‘Disco Tool’. Now comes a brand-new chapter with a string of new music planned from the talented producer under the Perfect Havoc umbrella.
Liverpool native Kevin Williams got into music production as an adolescent, inspired by the U.K. hardcore tunes played by his older brother. A little over a decade after Kokiri started to make electronic dance music, he had a breakthrough hit with "Turn Back Time (Retrospect)" (2015), a single released on Ministry of Sound in the U.K. and on Big Beat/Atlantic in the U.S, taking the radio airwaves by storm. Annie Mac & Pete Tong (BBC Radio 1) simply couldn’t get enough. Williams continued to release more A-sides for an assortment of labels including Love & Other, Perfect Havoc, and Armada Deep, including the Adam F collaboration "Harmony” released on Danny Howard’s Nothing Else Matters imprint as well as the solo productions "Chasing" and "Other Side of Love" (all 2016-2017). His productions have quite rightly courted a whole host of tastemaker champions from David Guetta & Afrojack, Oliver Heldens & Sam Feldt, Annie Mac & Danny Howard.
The last couple of years have seen him rack play after play on BBC Radio 1 with MistaJam making releases “Adolescence" and “Joy" both his Future Anthem in each case. Further huge wireless support has come from Scott Mills on Radio 1 Party Anthems and the love also grows ever stronger across the Kiss Network with tastemakers from Joel Corry, SKT to Ben Malone all putting their weight of support behind one of Liverpool’s finest.
Walk On Water is written by Kokiri, George Kwali (best known for his hit Crank It), Aiden Martin and Yasmin Jane. Kokiri adds in his signature synthesiser sound mixed with a lush and catchy vocal performance from UK singer/songwriter Aiden Martin.
