UK producer duo, Kachina, have announced that they will be releasing a brand new EP on the 13th of December via NexGen Music and Affectionate Grooves. They also shared the title track to this EP, ‘Eyes of March’ which is wordplay for the 15th of March, a reference to Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar.
Kachina was created by Rob Sparx, Zurcon and Wigz, and is not your regular house music project. Now, continuing on with Rob Sparx and Wigz and based in Leicester and Leamington Spa, these multi-talented musicians have always wished to dig deeper when it comes to electronic music, explaining that, “We’re writing music that isn’t just functional party music; its therapy using bass, rhythm, melody & harmony, we try to capture a spiritual sense of the world mixing our favourite dance styles with a tribal sound.” As a trio, Kachina injected the UK electronic scene with this positive energy for years, with their involvement in many local events such as collaborating with the Sous Sol parties and playing regularly for Bloop parties, among many other projects.
Kachina’s ‘Eyes of March’ is a UK garage groove soaked in dub and soulful vocal samples. It has a sombre bluesy feel to it, even though it will definitely have you dancing on your feet. ‘Eyes of March’ grabs your attention from the beginning as dub-filled reverbs fills the ears and the beat starts making you groove. A solid track from a group that’s been around a while, it’s clear that Kachina’s upcoming EP will be a standout from their career as we simply can’t wait to hear more.
The upcoming EP is tinged with some sadness though, as one of the members, Zurcon, tragically passed away from cancer earlier this year. Kachina decided to go forth as a duo and honouring his legacy by including him in the whole EP.

Kachina comments, “This is the first press release we’ve done since Zurcon passed away in April, RIP Ernest Payne you were a proper one in a million diamond geezer!” and goes on to explain, about their latest single, “Get yer skanking shoes on for ‘Eyes of March’! The title track from Kachina‘s 10th and strongest release yet on Affectionate Grooves is a 130bpm epic & euphoric soulful dub journey with a memorising combination of cheeky dub vocals and an ever evolving super funky amen workout. With elements of Tuff Jam era garage, Jungle and 88-92 classic hardcore, Eyes of March is the anthem you’ve been waiting for!”
