Kim Fai - The Eagle Has Landed
1. Original Mix
Kim Fai presents his debut single “The Eagle Has Landed” on the Magik Muzik imprint.
Born in the “Midlands” of the U.K., at the age of 15, Kim Fai split the cost of turntables with his good friend and learned how to DJ. From that point on, he knew that playing music would be a part of his life. At 17 he took a music course at the local college and learned about music production, but it wasn’t until he began college in Birmingham that he found like-minded people to share his passion. He started being booked for gigs, meeting new people and allies in the industry and eventually got in to the studio with Funkagenda and they made a track, which was ultimately signed to Groove Digital Records. His big break came after doing his 'Kissing in Krakow' album with Toolroom in 2009. Off the back of that Steve Angelo got in touch and wanted him to do something with his label Size Records. He continued working with Size records for the next few years, playing on tours and at their weekly residency at Pacha in Ibiza.
With appearances at Creamfields, Global Gathering, L.E.D, Love Parade, Tomorrowland and back to back gigs with AN21 and Max Vangeli, including an invitation to perform at Tiesto’s arena at Mysterylands Amsterdam, Kim really made his mark amongst the House greats. Along with sold out gigs at Pacha with the Swedish House Mafia and supporting Deadmau5 for his U.S. and U.K. tours, as well as Kim’s own U.S. gigs along the East and West Coasts, Kim also toured with Deadmau5 in North America and last year he did a U.S. tour with Funkagenda, doing Funk Farm label parties.
As a remix artist Kim has reworked tracks of Chase & Status, Jason Derulo, Penguin Prison, Lady Gaga and The Prodigy. Pete Tong supported all of Kim’s remixes across his Essential Selections, including Kim’s 15 Minutes of Fame and Essential Mix.
Kim’s EP release, “PS / Kato” on Steve Angello’s Size Records was a hit across dance floors used by Kim and his peers and reached number one on the Buzz Chart. Beatport even awarded Kim with Best Chill Out Track of 2010 for “Pass A Roach”. Kim Fai's most recent appearance on the Black Hole imprint was the remix he made for "Another Late Night" by Sydney Blu featuring MC Flipside and now Kim makes his debut with “The Eagle Has Landed” on the Magik Muzik label.
Ain’t nothing wrong with energetic electro house and with “The Eagle Has Landed”, Kim makes a perfect first impression on Magik Muzik. Chiseling a bumping arrangement with techy elements and sharp synth swells, Kim Fai works the vibe in his unique style, ready to take over the party.
