The spring of 2013 was marked by James Blake's ambient tones in Retrograde. 'This song reminds me of when I was at my previous company questioning whether this profession was for me or not,' says Jamie Kyte.  

Julio Bashmore's Au Seve was the summer of 2013 for Kyte. If you think it sounds repetitive, you'd be wrong, it's clearly a banger. 'This was my "I'm leaving" track and reminds me of when I started at First Wealth,' Kyte says. 

'After passing the last AF exam I was able to become chartered,' Kyte says. 'Four and a half years of exams were over! Or so I thought.' This was the summer of 2016, three years after British duo Disclosure released their feel-good summer anthem with Sam Smith. 

DJ Khaled ft. Rihanna and Bryson Tiller relseased Wild Thoughts in the summer of 2017. 'The biggest song of the year,' Kyte says. And he's right. 'Inspired and sampling Santana's Maria guitar rift, this would get the office going on many occasions. And it has badgalriri, enough said.'
