With the help of a mysterious shadow government called Cinco he was cryogenically frozen as a safeguard for the future’s wellbeing. Despite a great many years of pursuing peace on the planet, a new threat began to loom on the horizon and the commando was brought out of sleep by the Committee of Five.

Kito & Reija Lee are a producer and singer duo from Perth, Australia, now based in London.

The duo created the wonderfully vibrant ‘LFO’, a track that defined an era of transition from the murky to the melodic, demonstrating a side of such music that was much more uplifting and soulful that its sparse, half-step predecessor.
