My favourite UK producer combo (Imperial / Kinetik) return with a brand new single titled “Celebrate”. Uploaded to the Illect Records Soundcloud page, the new track is a party starter and has both a reflective and optimistic feel to it. With plenty in store planned for Imperial and Kinetik in 2016 (watch this space), Celebrate has perfectly ended the year for the UK duo. Look out for more news about the upcoming Imperial and Kinetik album we have been promised in 2016, and in the meantime you can listen to Imperial and Kinetik – Celebrate on the soundcloud player below.
