A.K. Paul has a thing for hanging out in the shadows. The brother of Jai Paul has mostly stayed away from the spotlight thus far, content to lend his considerable talent for electronic R&B to tracks by Sam Smith, Big Boi, and Jessie Ware, among others. Up until recently, his most prominent release was a tune he co-authored with British singer-songwriter Nao in 2014, “So Good”. That all changed this week with the arrival of Paul Institute, a new project that finds Jai and A.K. (who also goes by Anup Paul) working together.
Track 6 from ‘Grasscut — Everyone Was A Bird – Remixed’
Radar remixed by Adrian Crowley
Grasscut’s 2015 album Everyone Was A Bird was a critical success, hailed as “Inspiring” by The Wire, “Thoughtful and beautifully reflective” by Electronic Sound and “As much an all-encompassing art piece as it is a pop record” by Q.
12 months later we now have Everyone Was A Bird – Remixed, featuring a hand-picked selection of musicians and producers, including the likes of Fink, John Metcalfe, Mira Calix and Penguin Cafe, who have each reworked the album in their own style.
The album is available on vinyl.
