Kilter - No Games feat. Gill Bates
12 Jan 2018
After a huge year touring the globe and hitting #1 on the iTunes Electronic chart with his debut album Through The Distortion, Kilter now returns with new single No Games featuring Brisbane-based Sudanese migrant Gill Bates.
Adapted from the 2008 dancehall hit of the same name, Kilter’s signature production prowess and Gill Bates’ vocal flavour bring a fresh new take on Serani’s cult classic.
On the track, Kilter says “during a late night dig through reggaeton records I connected with the vocals from this old Serani track and smashed out a demo based on some of the parts. I had been a fan of Gill for a while and knew he had the right vibe to bring my idea to life. I'm really happy with where the record ended up- a wonky banger with a strong nod to it's reggae roots. A few months later I brought Gil out to perform it live at Splendour In The Grass and was one of the highlights of the show.”

With his previous singles ‘I Hear You’, ‘Count On Me feat. LANKS’, ‘Fool For You’ and ‘They Don’t Know Us’ all getting millions of spins online, Kilter has developed a global audience which saw him undertake his debut headline tour of the US and Canada in 2017, as well as touring through Indonesia, Australia and New Zealand.
No Games has also attracted attention from DJs and producers from across the globe, with remixes from Norwegian producer and NLV Records signing Hi Tom, Brazilian house aficionado Bruno Furlan and Croatian producer Koolade, as well as local club heroes Colour Castle & Blanke.
