"Monkey Tennis feat. The Littlemen @ Candy’s Apartment, Sydney (10/02/07)"

Warming up a crowd who were clearly saving themselves for the headliners turned out to be a hard task, with the atmosphere staying noticeably tepid until regular Monkey player Kyla Sexton took the stage to accompany residents Lummy and the brotherhood, who together constructed a phenomenal force. Layering the heavy synthetic beats with sweet, energetic vocals, Kyla stood out like a foghorn across the floor and blazed the punters with encouragement, successfully awakening the expectant crowd. By the time the decks are flipped in the wee hours of the morning, the dance floor was slick with sweaty anticipation. - Rennie Lee on www.inthemix.com

"Monkey Tennis feat. Inland Knights & Da Sunlounge @ Candy's Apartment, Sydney (11/03/06)"

Lummy and Broadband did the right thing and opened to a rapidly filling room, taking turns and checking all the boxes marked ‘deep’ and ‘sweet.’ Kyla Sexton, who has become a crucial ingredient to the Monkey Tennis mix, knows how to add vocals to a DJ set. By complimenting the tracks rather than overshadowing the work of the DJ’s, Kyla helped to build the vibe for the night. John Devecchis returned in full tennis kit (sweatband and all) for the midnight slot and played more of the same, faultlessly building slowly while leaving plenty of room for the headliners. At the three-hour mark, it was obvious the DJ’s weren’t taking shortcuts with any obvious tunes. - Veebs on www.inthemix.com.au

Bio

Soaring melodies, jazzy scats, catchy hooks, and sexy, laid back entertainment is what you can expect from nightclub siren Kyla. Totally unique and cutting edge, her amazing vocal tone and style mesmerises.

Currently doing shows as a live PA with DJ's, Kyla sings seamlessly with soulful house, nu-jazz and funk. Many people comment that they do not realise Kyla is singing live until they see her, as her performance is so polished and pitch perfect.

The Sydney based vocalist was classically trained before realizing that her love of house music and singing could be combined. Since that revelation Kyla has worked for the last 5 years freestyling with the best of Sydney's DJ's, in just about every nightclub, lounge and bar. She has also just completed a tour of UK and Ibiza clubs, working with the best internatinal house DJ's.

Kyla is known for her ability to sit back and subtly compliment the track, then unexpectedly build up to a vocal powerhouse improvised chorus, making the crowd go crazy.

Kyla has released dance tracks internationally: 'Lonely' -Jaymz Nylon feat. Kyla, 'Dynamite' - W&Y feat Kyla
and soon to be released: 'Can't Deny' and 'Out of Time' - Soulbasics feat. Kyla and 'Vertigo' - W&Y feat Kyla

Kyla is now taking her music in a new direction and is currently writing a debut EP of soul and funk inspired songs. While writing she can still be found most Fridays at her current residency at Zeta Bar, Hilton Hotel, Sydney.
