Proudly flying the flag for Denmark and electronic music, this international producer has had quite the impressive career to date. With productions supported by dance elite such as Fedde Le Grand, Deniz Koyu, Thomas Gold, Don Diablo and Hardwell, Kid Massive’s stock as a DJ, Producer & Remixer is very much on the rise.
KM’s releases have been prominent fixtures on Beatport, Australian ARIA and UK Club Charts, with airplay on national and global radio stations like BBC Radio 1 in the UK and Sirius FM in the US, further cementing the Dane’s position as an important part of the EDM scene.
His signature sound of driving and often vocal-driven big room house has appeared on a host of major dance labels including Revealed, Strictly Rhythm, Flamingo and Harem, whilst also being stamped on remixes for Sony Music artists in the UK, Australia and Japan.
It all started for Benjamin Pedersen back in the early noughties, experimenting with different styles of music before finding his current signature sound. Signing to the legendry label Slip N Slide, in 2008 he delivered his first international hit “Get Busy” which hit number 2 in the Beatport Top 100. Building on this achievement, he reworked several seminal classics “Music Is The Answer”, “Touch Me (In the Morning)” and “Pride (A Deeper Love)” – followed by one of his finest achievements, the debut album “A Little Louder”, a stunning 12 song collection released in 10 different countries. The same-titled first single and two follow ups “Don’t Cry” and “Yawn” received a dizzying array of chart positions, all featuring in the UK Club Chart Top 10 – “Yawn” claimed the coveted #1 spot – plus TV, radio, online and DJ support.
Following on from the highly successful album project, KM dropped the commercial hit “Good Girlfriend” which shot to no 5 in the UK Club Chart and the official video clocked up an incredible 250K views on VEVO in its first week. More originals ensued, showcasing his talent as a skilled producer capable of straddling the fine line between commercial and club success – the thunderous monster “Strong”, “Bring Us Down”, “Smash It”, pop-tinged “Daylight” and heavy hitter “Amrock”.
He can also add production credits to his name, having crafted “Chemistry” for Dutch singing star Eva Simons (the voice of Afrojack’s “Take Over Control”) which became the official Pepsi campaign soundtrack for Beyonce’s Mrs Carter Show world tour in Holland.
Fast forward to 2015 and Kid Massive has come full circle, reconnecting with his house roots as evidenced by the Beatport chart toppers “House Music (Move Your Body)”, “I Feel For You”, “Stand Up Miami” and “Explode”, showcasing his unique sound and championing the big-room house groove.
From Womb Japan, to Wall Miami, Marquee Sydney, Ministry of Sound London and a whole host of clubs in between, KM continues to apply his energetic and passionate sets to dance floors across the world. He is also no stranger to even larger audiences, having headlined the dance stage at Japan’s largest outdoor event Fuji Rock Festival and Serbia’s Exit Festival.
Massive by name and massive by sound, this is one dance act who is ready to live up to his title. We can all quite literally, expect big things in the future from Kid Massive!
