Kendl Makes “Little Man” His Own
Kendl just dropped a beautiful transformation of “Little Man” by Little Dragon. This new version turns the original synth-pop track into an ambient sounding indie-dance song. He makes a very clever use of vocals from the original, taking a few lines from both verse and chorus. What makes this track so dance-worthy is the addicting bouncy lead melody in combination with the vocal “in-stant-ly.” His impressive take on the track uses the vocals very rhythmically, while other remixes I’ve heard don’t as much. Kendl has produced a rework that couples the memorable lyrics, “Something missing in your smile. Something missing in your soul.” with shuffling percussion that keeps the space open and upbeat during the buildups. This remix flows so smoothly with a deep house vibe, less the wubs, properly embedded into an indie sounding background. Check out the new track below, now released via Soundcloud!

After hearing this flip, you’ll see how it exactly fits into the description shown on Kendl’s Soundcloud profile:
Jesse Kendal is an Australian based electronic music producer who creates under the name Kendl. Kendl’s diverse sound draws from a number of influences such as Bonobo, Jamie xx, SBTRKT and Koreless to name a few. With a huge passion for sound, Jesse’s focus is to bring beat driven dance music laced with textures, unique percussion and immense atmosphere to the masses. With over a year working on a bulk of new music, Kendl has his sights set on 2017 being his year.
Kendl has several originals carrying this focus in a way that make me confident of him establishing a trademark quality. His range of sound is reminiscent of the kind of diversity from producers like Daktyl, Prince Fox and Dirty Chocolate; the last of whom is a member of the same platform/collective as Kendl, Ethereal.
