Kaya Project - Mixed & Remixed (Limited Edition Box Set)

1997 

Inserting the debut album of Shakta in my cd player. An age when most of the time you had to trust the name of the record label for providing quality material. And Dragonfly did deliver. Little I knew that 20 years later I would be blessed by releasing over 5 hours of his music for the first time in physical format.

Behind Shakta is Sebastian Taylor. Known under a lot of monikers with the most well-known of them being Shakta, Digitalis, Somaton, Kaya Project, Angel Tears (group) and Hibernation. He is producing so much music which the quality and diversity of it makes it even more suprising.

An accomplished guitar player, Seb also plays the tzoura, zheng, banjoud, harmonica, hammered dulcimer, hang drum, various percussion, flute as well as the occasional vocal. At age 16 Sebastian heard the album "Songs From the Victorious City", a collaboration between Anne Dudley and Jaz Coleman (give it a listen), and became fascinated with the fusion of Middle Eastern music and Western production. You can hear that influence in his downtempo, chill out (call them what you want) projects.

The lives are a team effort

The success of his recordings with the groups Shakta and Digitalis led to Seb performing around the world on a regular basis, which gave him the opportunity to absorb different musical cultures. While on tour in Mexico , Sebastian met Irina Mikhailova singing with Medicine Drum, and on a subsequent trip to London Irina recorded vocals at Seb's studio. The resulting track, "Labess," sung in Moroccan Arabic, became the first Kaya Project song.

2017 and there are numerous albums, EPs and scattered tracks from Kaya Project. A lot of them available only online. Digital Reprints steps in again to bring those digital albums on your library. 3 albums (The Elixir Remixes, The Ambient Mixes and So It Was) and 4 EPS (Oummah Oum Remixes Ep, Firedance EP, Sema Yaka and Crossing The River) presented in 2 8-panel High Quality digipacks encased in a slipcase.

​The design will be provided by Nick "Interchill" Edell.

The release will be limited to 200 copies worldwide.

Risks and challenges

This is our second project and with the experience we accumulated we expect everything will be done faster and better :)

We have secured the mastered files.
Nick Interchill is waiting for the successful conclusion of the campaign to start work on the graphics.
And we are happy with the quality of the cds produced from the pressing plant.

All parcels will be sent with tracking code, signed for and insured for the whole amount.
The only aspect we don't have any direct control on are the signed copies, so we cannot provide a definite delivery time.
