Retro Electro with strong traces of Italo Disco - Kid Machine, is an electronic music composer from North West UK.
The name derives from Kraftwerk's 'Die Mensch Maschine' after someone said he 'sounded like the child of Kraftwerk'
The debut Kid Machine EP was on Sounds of the Suburbs records in 2009 entitled 'Velours '77' for good friend/label owner Mike TV from Beats for Beginners.
In Autumn 2011 Kid Machine's reputation grew, gaining exposure from all over the world with a little help from Kids' Italo Sensai Mr Flemming Dalum. Flemming put 2 tracks (Dragon, Replicants) on the Magic80 mix for Valeriecollective.com, and in return this gained label interest from Danish label &rt; Relux Rimini Records.
Kid Machine also plays live with sets in Edinburgh, Manchester and The Netherlands in recent years. Using Ableton Live and a MIDI controller he arranges his tracks in an improvised fashion, so no two sets will ever be the same. Intergalactic FM in DEN HAAG, NL were quick on the scene to play and promote KM’s music, firstly on the Cyber Dance affiliated MagicWaves show, and then on I-F’s own show – The Bottomless Pit in 2012.
I-F or Ferenc (the owner of Intergalactic FM) was alerted to Kid Machine by a fan Mauro Belpassi in early 2012, and instantly, I-F wanted to release an EP on his legendary, and highly collectable label Viewlexx. Kid Machine is understood to be the first UK artist on this label. The EP (Viewlexx 023) sold out within 4 days of release in July 2012, and is played and supported by some great names around the world. The EP was mastered by another Dutch Underground legend Rude66. The label artwork was designed and Art Directed by Kid Machine.
Kid will continue to collaborate, remix, and produce in 2013 on several labels.

"During my lifelong search for italo and other electronic music from the 80ies - I stumbled over Kid Machine.
His unique sound and style immediately blew me a way - and I had to present his fantastic tracks in one of my mixes.
Dragon and Replicants kick started Kid Machine career – watch out for more !"
(Flemming Dalum – Moustache / Cyber Dance / Roller Disco / Bordello A Parigi / Flexx / Panama Racing / Magic Waves )
Kid Machine is undoubtedly one of the greatest Italo-Electro producers to emerge this year and is in fact so good that he gives even the original classics a run for their money!!"
(James Penrose - Magic Waves Radio / Cyber Dance Records / Casionova)
"I really love Kid Machine's dark Italo-electro-disco-influenced synth sounds. They always remind me of John Carpenter soundtracks. His productions are essential, don't miss them!
He transforms my favorite vibes from old underground Italo Disco tracks into dark, contemporary electro-disco grooves."
(Markus Schneider - The Robot Scientists / Emerald & Doreen Recordings)
"Having had Kid Machine's musical ventures on the radar for a while, I've enjoyed the continued refinement of his unique sound. The passion for Italo flavors and talent has made Kid Machine a strong brand to watch out for."
(Gert Nygaard - Skycreaker / Relux Music Group)
