Phyla Digital is proud to bring to you one of the biggest releases we've put together to date.

Presenting the Dubsmash EP from all-round drum and bass legend, Kiat.

A leg injury in early 2016 forced Kiat's hand into making music to clear his headspace and rid himself of the anxiety and frustration from cabin fever.

The results of those cathartic sessions are the four tracks in this release.

'Katong' switches things up with a gritty halftime rhythm. The dub influence is retained with swirling vocals deftly scattered throughout as sinister pads weave in and out of the sequence.

'Liberation' returns to what Kiat is best known for - no nonsense drum and bass.

'Dubsmash' is a collaboration with fellow Singaporean producer Diphasic. Heavily dub influenced, intricate percussion and a rumbling bass keep the tension rising from start to finish.

This is accompanied by a breakbeat infused remix of 'Katong' from Diphasic to round off a sensational decade for Kiat.

From hallmark drum and bass labels like Metalheadz, Hospital, SoulR, Function and Dispatch to his own ventures with Qilin and Syndicate, amongst other multifaceted projects, Kiat is the hallmark of a visionary.

Best of all, he's Singaporean - just like us.
