Tritonal—the American DJ duo of Chad Cisneros and Dave Reed that have become a rising star in the EDM world—hits Borgata’s MIXX Nightclub June 27 and the timing couldn’t be more perfect.
With their recently dropped track “Untouchable,” done in collaboration with another Multiple DJ force Cash Cash, the duo is back on the cutting edge—as if they’d ever been off. Collaborations between vocalists and DJs are always noted, but lately more and more DJs themselves have been working together producing a string of EDM hits.
“Untouchable” is a melodic, big room anthem that features James Abrahart, also known as J Hart, on vocals.
Tritonal previously remixed Cash Cash’s “Surrender,” but this time the two DJ teams hit the studio together.
“The song came from such an inspirational place,” Reed and Cisneros told Billboard.com, calling the week-long collaboration a year highlight. “Upon finishing, we all felt we’d written a special one.”
It’s all pretty normal for the Texas-raised DJs who have been putting out hits since they formed their duo in 2008 after meeting in an online music chatroom. Of course, back then they were known as producers of trance, but they’ve spent the last six years moving steadily into the EDM scene with a progressive house sound.
“We came up as trance artists and we still love trance,” Cisneros told edmsauce.com in a recent interview. “It just got to a place where it felt like we were starting to do the same thing. At the end of (the album) “Piercing the Quiet” we were doing that electro-trance thing and we were just kind of done with it.”
Turning out to see a two-girl DJ act named KIM KAT—for Kim Lee and Kat Nova—might leave you thinking that maybe, just maybe, their show will be a little girly.
Not a chance.
“We’re just wild and a lot of fun,” explains Lee to ballerstatus.com. “It’s all about energy. I guess ’cause we’re girls people, at first, think, ‘Oh their set is probably girly.’ But, we’re far from that (laughs).”
Ok sure, Lee has done some modeling for Maxim and other magazines and appeared in small roles in films like “Hangover 2.” They’re both alluring, beautiful women. But together they’re DJ KIM Kat and they’ll play mur.mur tonight with Borgata House DJ PS1.
The bond between them is based on a shared passion for music, they explain.
“Kat and I been friends for over 10 years now,” Lee says. “We used to do music videos back then and we met on her second day in LA. She’s got this cool vibe about her and she hustles like me. We both share the same vision with work.”
Since meeting in 2007, DJ KIM KAT have toured across the United States from Scottsdale to New York and internationally from Korea to Vietnam, captivating crowds with their unique electro sets. Infusing EDM, Hip-Hop, Trance, and Top 40, DJ KIM KAT grace any venue that they play at with unrivaled energy and compelling music selection, not to mention a pretty good aesthetic.
Currently, DJ KIM KAT is working on their debut album, but until then, they say they can always be found doing what they excel at—delivering sets to fans across the globe.
“We usually go back to back or I would MC while she’s deejaying,” Lee says. “We just freestyle it and we always get our fans involved at our shows. There’s definitely a lot of alcohol at our shows (laughs), but it’s all fun.”
Advance tickets for KIM KAT with PS1 at mur.mur are $25 and available here.
