What's so good?
By Rachel Skotarczyk | Sep 02, 2012

Too young to DJ in the clubs, Kyogi (pronounced: key-oh-gee,) is doing just fine for himself spinning and producing in the privacy of his bedroom. At 15, with a handful of SoundCloud posts, he's already got a legion of followers.

Sighting Karma Kid, Disclosure, and Bondax as influences, Kyogi is following closely behind these future garage trail blazers.

The original version of "You Were" was posted on Future Garage Forums, but somewhere along the way Kyogi's files got corrupted and he was unable to finish the track. That's when Honest, a.k.a Mason Reno, stepped in to right these digital wrongs. (read more at trnscndntsounds).

What one may not know is that Kyogi is a Japanese word that, when loosely translated, means, "untrue." When paired with a producer called Honest, the title of this track can start to feel pretty self-conflicted. Nevertheless, "Untrue" and Honest perfectly compliment each other, as opposites tend to do, and the creation of "You Were" comes full circle in this enlightening remix.
