Much like other Bearsuit artists, Whizz Kid sound like they’re in a world of their own but they possess the spirit of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop allied with the sweetly nostalgic noise of Black Moth Super Rainbow.
The Yellow and Blue EP by Whizz Kid is an interesting and compelling piece of work. Whizz Kid make an interesting blend of dreamy funk fuelled breakbeat and smokey electronica that sounds like it came from the back of beyond. [The Sonic Mine Field]
