London-based, Welsh born siblings Trutopia play the sort of sets made for sunny day raves. With releases on labels like Love & Other, CR2 and Get Twisted, they have been steadily building a profile over the past couple of years while their sets in some of the UK’s finest clubs have consistently been going down a treat.
Earlier this month, the duo – real names Ash & Kris – released their remix of A-Minor’s ‘Fluid (feat. Iris Gold)' on Love & Other and it was quite a gem and which is sure to find a home in many a festival set this summer. Now, the pair have served up a sizzling hour-long mix for our Fresh Kicks series, which you can hear below. With a tracklist boasting the likes of Josh Butler, a remix of Kerri Chandler and some of duo’s own work it’s an ideal companion for the coming sunshine.
