Artist of the Day: Kidkanevil

DJ/Producer kidkanevil first came to prominence with the release of his critically acclaimed debut album ‘Problems & Solutions’ back in 2007, and has since gone from strength to strength. Described by Bonobo as “like the best moments of RJD2 and Timbaland combined…incredible!” and “a sonic visionary” by iDJ, the kid has earnt the praise and respect of numerous peers and journalists, counting the likes of DJ Shadow and Wire Magazine amongst his fans, and progressives Tokimonsta, Blue Daisy and Illum Sphere amongst his contemporaries.

Now three albums deep his latest offering ‘Basho Basho’ “deserves to put kidkanevil right up there with Flying Lotus” (Knowledge Magazine) and sees him riding into town like a hi-tec hunter-gatherer, spearing, chopping and mixing beats in his own unique style. Both a headphone experience and dancefloor dynamite, it’s an intelligent journey into the creative mind of a truly innovative and experimental producer.

Fresh off this year’s Red Bull Music Academy and ready to unleash a barrage of new music and collaborations on the world, this is just the beginning. Blurring the lines between hip-hop, future beats, jazz, jungle, dubstep and worldwide sounds, kidk’s DJ/Live sets are a force to be reckoned with (Elastic Artists).

kidkanevil is available for one person DJ/Live (Serato and Ableton) sets.
