Kyle Smith, known to the music community as Third Culture, has found a niche within the downtempo genre with a sensual, easy-going vibe that fits ceremoniously into the quickly evolving chill-out scene. Over the course of his blossoming career, Third Culture has seamlessly transitioned from the realm of progressive house bootlegs to his own original tracks. His natural talent has been amply recognized and led him to stages alongside prestigious names such as Steve Aoki and Nicky Romero. In addition to his nearly 100 remixes,and his own podcast series, The Third Wheel Show, on DML.fm.
Most recently, the young virtuoso is delivering a spin on the lovely, talented Kyla La Grange's latest single, "Cut Your Teeth". La Grange debuted on the UK scene in 2012 and received international spotlight soon after. Upon hearing the potential within "Cut Your Teeth", Third Culture jumped at the opportunity to mix the enticing creation.
Through insightful use of various synths and high hats, the Dj frankly breathes new life into the beautifully subdued track. His imaginative supplements to the rising star's mesmerizing voice create much-needed balance between components of the song. The combination of La Grange's soothing essence and Third Culture's emphasis on tranquil beat sequences makes for very easy listening. Remaining true to his preferred style, Third Culture maintains the song's original tranquility. His subtle nuances take it to the next level and create an entirely new musical experience.
Whether you're unwinding after a long day or taking a relaxing, solo car ride, it won't be hard to find the right time to throw on this tune.
