kidkanevil & Blue Daisy's Lehgo Bricks Mix for Outlook by Outlook Festival published on 2011/08/08 15:46:25 +0000 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. Kwesi Darko a.k.a Blue Daisy has been a name fluttering about for a while, first found his breakthrough via pioneering DJ and living musical Heroine Mary-Anne Hobbs over a year ago now and having been championed by many as UK's answer to Flylo he prefers to stick with "UK's Answer? No, Just a London boy with a passion for music" and this clear as a blue sky in his sound, creating music that is so forward thinking it can leave you pretty confused as to if this is really a brain of a 24 year old at work or a far more experienced individual. His music influences stem from everything such as hip-hop to gospel, Grime to Dubstep, psyche rock to drone, Black Sabbath to Pink Floyd and more, far to many to mention. A young artist in his own domain without a doubt and a man with a lot more surprises up his sleeve for the future. 2011 will also see his debut LP release, “The Sunday Gift” via Black Acre featuring guest appearences from the likes of the critically acclaimed vocalist Heidi Vogel(Cinematic Orchestra) , Wah Wah 45′s Stac and more.. Keep Watch, this is no one hit wonder.
