cktrl – yield | A COLORS SHOW
In recent years, South East London-based multi-instrumentalist, producer, and DJ has reimagined classical music under the moniker cktrl, which stands for “can’t keep to reality”. In 2020, the Lewisham native released his debut EP ‘robyn’, a raw and potent exploration of heartbreak told through the artist’s jazz-infused piano, saxophone, and clarinet arrangements. Last year saw the release of ‘zero’, an equally impressive body of work which features collaborations with COLORS alums Mereba, anaiis and ANNAHSTASIA.
For COLORS, cktrl shares a breathtaking rendition of his latest single ‘yield’, which is taken from his new EP of the same name. Opening with an exquisite saxophone solo, the track also features gentle piano chords, sensual clarinet notes, haunting backing vocals, and birdsong. Experience the mesmerizing moment above.
