Kyla / Press

“We all know KYLA from the track DO YOU MIND originally produced by DJ PALEFACE and mixed also by the CRAZY COUSINZ. It was the club smash of 2008 and 2009 and now in 2010 it is still a popular number that keeps KYLA busy performing nearly every weekend of the year.”

“Daydreaming is the highly anticipated second single from fresh faced pop sensation Kyla, with production from the hugely talented collective Crazy Cousinz.”

“I briefly mentioned Kyla earlier in the year, for the excellent Do You Mind, which almost scraped the charts back in February. This belated follow up is perhaps not as officially ‘Funky’ (that’s its genre, so I’m told) as its predecessor, but is kind of pretty. I seem to be developing a growing tolerance for smooth, polished vocal styles, and this certainly nails that. The video’s one of those cheesy, yet endearing affairs you used to get in the late 90s. It involves bubbles, dancing and sunsets.”

“something is very catchy in Kyla’s Daydreaming”

“We love this song! See Kyla sing it live at the Miss Black Britain Finals”

“As a key figure at the forefront of the UK Funky scene, Kyla is definately an artist to look out for! ”

“Kyla’s made a massive impact on the Funky scene following the success of singles such ‘Do You Mind’ and ‘Be What You Wanna Be’. With the release of her upcoming single ‘Daydreaming’ we sent Milly Cundall to catch up with her to find out more. ”

“So when the year closed with the canned bongos and hormonal happy-hour vibe of Kyla’s Do You Mind, it’s no surprise people embraced it. ”

“Last week Romy from The xx told us her favourite kind of music is "upbeat songs with sad lyrics." That might explain this gorgeous, heavy-hearted new take on Kyla's funky anthem, the first of their songs to feature live drumming from Jamie.”

“We really love THE XX. We are also more than a little fond of the sound of UK funky circa 09. After sleeping off the celebrations from their top 40 long player chart entry last night, our buddies at YOUNG TURKS who have looked after London’s favourite spectral sons and daughters for the last couple of years sent us over this amazing track. We’re not quite sure why but somehow the two successfully crossbreed in the lighter than air and smoothed out cover/rework of KYLA’S ludicrously huge dancefloor killer ‘Do You Mind’.”

“Kyla is a key figure at the forefront of the UK Funky scene, Kyla is definately an artist to look out for!”

“RAZY COUSINZ finally get ready to unleash one of this years biggest club bangers! On this occasion they team up with the massively talented KYLA, who delivers the most seductively infectious vocals heard in a long time! This record has already been tearing down dance floors all last summer and when KYLA's sweet tones are coupled with CRAZY COUSINZ signature sound they produce what is steadily proving to be a bonafide hit.”

“If that vocal doesn't give you chills, go see your doctor.”

“An undeniable summer anthem from Paleface, remixed by Crazy Cousinz, and featuring the vocal talents of Kyla, this track has been stuck in my head these last couple of months. I think the worse the weather gets the more I need this sound.”

“The amount of phones that were ringing this Summer saying “The Whole Night……” With production from Crazy Cousinz and vocals from Kyla, is it really a surprise that it has such high appeal?? ”

“This is the club smash from Kyla remixed by Crazy Cousinz”

“This tune is bad have not heared anything, this good since fish go deep we need more tunes like dis.”

“Oh yeah and 'Do You Mind' recently got playlisted on Radio One, which probably means some major label will come along soon and try and make them do some soft rock collaboration with a guy who sings like Chris Martin.”

“Finally, the funky house anthem that is Do You Mind is getting released! 26th January it will see the light of day and random girls in clubs who ask me to play "that record that goes the whole night" will hopefully finally learn the title.”

“One of my favourite tunes of 2008 is given a fresh twist for the new year: a sweet lovers' rock remix. I'd love to hear more reggae tunes from Kyla - her voice sounds great over the driving drums and offbeat skank.”

“New joint from Kyla, voice of the club smash UK funky anthem 'Do U Mind' with the Crazy Cousins. Nice vid.”

“Finally some new music from Kyla !! The track is titled 'Don't Play With My Heart'. Sound-wise it isn't as funky as her previous material, but it's definitely a grower !! Check out her hot new video !! Enjoy :)”


“Really feeling this song – new from Kyla, she of Crazy Cousinz “Do You Mind” vocal fame. She’s taken a new RnB direction and it really works for me – been heavily rotating on my Radio 1Xtra show. Video doesn’t look too bad either!!”

“A few weeks ago, when a preview video was uploaded to YouTube, you may have caught FACT getting all wet about a new single from Paleface and Kyla, ‘Don’t Play With My Heart’. Considering that the pair’s 2008 anthem, ‘Do You Mind’ (well, the remix by Crazy Cousinz – of whom Paleface is also a member) is one of the great British pop songs of modern times, we think we’re justified in getting excited. And guess what, you can now hear ‘Don’t Play With My Heart’ – in full – on the Northern Line label’s YouTube channel. Complete with a video that’s a little bit Hear’Say. First impressions: the production reminds us of Gaga and Beyonce’s ‘Videophone’, there’s a line that reminds us of ‘Genie in a Bottle’, and we want a Crazy Cousinz remix.”
