KiWi TIME release "Magic in the Air" in time for holidays

Bay area based indie pop group, Kiwi Time, have joined in on the holiday spirit and released a new single titled, “Magic in the Air.” The silky smooth track was produced by All-Star producer Dan Shea (Mariah Carey, Robin Thicke, and Rob Thomas) and fans can check it out here.

The band recently released a brand new single titled “If I Can” which features guest vocals by the legendary hip hop artist and producer, Sir Mix-A-Lot. This once-in-a-lifetime collaboration comes at a time when Belarusian natives Kiwi Time are seeing their stock rise, and the rapper is enjoying a healthy rebirth via Nicki Minaj’s sampling of “Baby Got Back” from the Mix’s platinum-certified 1992 album, Mack Daddy.

Kiwi Time commented on the collaboration with Sir Mix-A-Lot: “The song “If I Can” is about love, freedom, and the ability to imagine a life beyond everyday boundaries. While working on this track the head of our label Granted Access, Yuriy, suggested having a rap artist lay down a verse for the song. Through various connections we were able to meet up with Mix in Seattle. When we heard the news that the collaboration with Sir Mix a Lot was going to happen we couldn't believe it and were so thrilled. As someone wise once said, "Everything seems impossible, until it is possible". We shared some ideas with Sir Mix-a-lot about our song, as well as ideas for the music video we had for the song and when we got the lyrics and verse back from Mix he simply blew our minds with how well he was able to nail our idea of the track in his own words. It is a HUGE honor for Kiwi Time to meet and moreover work with the Grammy award winner and a legend of hip hop music. We are really happy with the final result and can’t wait to share it with everyone.”
