Bio

Reija Lee has cemented herself within the electronic music world as one half of the duo ‘Kito & Reija Lee’; as the queen of EDM features (having worked with the likes of Zeds Dead, Shockone, Paces, Metrik, and Fred V & Grafix); and has been sampled by rap heavyweights such as T.I., Outkast’s Big Boi and Trinidad James.

Previously signed to Diplo’s label Mad Decent, Kito & Reija Lee’s breakout hit ‘Sweet Talk’ hit No 1 on the US Dance iTunes and was used for the Victoria’s Secret 2013 Spring/Summer Campaign all over the US and Canada. Having released EPs on Mad Decent and Ultra Music, and having toured the US, Australia and NZ, Kito & Reija Lee laid the project to rest in 2015.

2017 saw Reija Lee’s resurgence into dance music with a Triple J playlisting and a national tour for the single ‘A Dark Machine’ with Shockone; the release of ‘Blood Brother’ - her collaboration with Canadian duo Zeds Dead and Diskord, and appearances on 360’s new album ‘Vintage Modern’, with the tracks ‘Drugs’ and ‘Body Language’.

Reija Lee’s solo project, due out in 2018, reveals her passion for 80s synth-pop. Taking inspiration from classics like Kate Bush and Tears for Fears, her solo work is a polished blend of nostalgia and freshness, topped off with soft, silky vocals and melodies that will stick in your head for days.

Something about this gives me a big virtual feeling. It's very colourful and pretty. Big neon lights everywhere too. It's a stunning vibe.

Love Nobody gets stronger on each listen, it's like you've bottled the emotions of a John Hughes film on this track
