We won't front like we know all that much about Australia's Kimbra, but she's clearly got a good head on her shoulders, going straight for the crème de la crème of remixers when she hit up our dude Penguin Prison for a mix of her latest single "Settle Down". While the original finds Kimbra intent on settling down, Penguin's all about shaking things up on his remix, upping the BPM and breathing new life into the track via churning synthesizers and the buoyant booms and bips he's become known for. All frenetic minimalism and soulful swagger, it's just another step away from the rest of the pack as Penguin further establishes himself as the freshest new remixer in the game.

Dude I haven't done much research but it sounds like Kimbra was born and bred in New Zealand?

Saying she is from Australia might be a bit of an insult!

Kimbra was born/grew up in NZ but she calls Melbourne, Australia home now.
