Nathaniel Williams a.k.a. Kibou is a creative and versatile DJ and producer from the capital city of London in the United Kingdom. Known predominantly for his unique take on big classic sounds, and engrossing live sets, his popularity has risen, gaining fans throughout Europe and beyond.
Although many DJ’s have a musical background, Nathaniel’s father was also a DJ, playing raves around London in the early 90’s. While other kids were listening to the latest chart hits, Nathaniel grew up listening to underground music. Artists of inspiration included Armand Van Helden, The Chemical Brothers, Daft Punk, Faithless, The Prodigy, Justice, Alan Braxe & Fred Falke.
Kibou’s sound can best be described as feelgood music. It’s the fun and uplifting side of house, often taking influence from disco and 90’s electronic music; with the mood he creates being one of energy and happiness.
As well as being a talented DJ and producer, Nathaniel has also learned to play keyboard, drums and guitar and has worked as an actor, a skill that has assisted with his confident and animated stage performances.
Since his first DJ booking at 14, he’s gone on to wow crowds at venues such as XOYO, The Nest, Be@1, Bounce, Tonight Josephine, The Lost Alhambra, Patch East, Luna Springs and other venues in and around the UK.
As a producer Kibou has featured on Solid State Disco, Fst n Fwd Records, Juiced Music and more with his tracks reaching high positions in Beatport and Traxsource disco and house charts, some with over 200k plays.
Currently Kibou has joined the team at Exigo records, a new and exciting house music label with the first 10 releases all charting highly. And with new music already signed and worldwide DJ bookings for next year being discussed, 2021 is set to be a promising year for Nathaniel and Kibou.
