Droppin' Science w/ KidKanevil 05.03.11

After killing it at Droppin' Science with us back last June, were happy to welcome back First Word record's Producer/Dj extraordinaire KidKanevil.

Hailing from Tokyorkshire, 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. His lively dj sets often span many genres, from hip hop to reggae to dubstep to old school jungle/dnb, with plenty of lazers thrown in for good measure!

Now three albums deep, his latest LP ‘Basho Basho’ was released earlier last year to great critical acclaim, & followed up by a remixed version featuring some of the most talented producers out there today.

Kidk is also an integral part of the group 'Stateless' who's critically acclaimed album has just dropped on Ninja Tune records!

Earlier this year he also dropped a free 7-track EP titled 'freebeeatsnbleeps' - we recommend you go download that now if you haven't already, get it at

“By far one of the UK’s most original producers.” – Hip Hop Connection

“5/5″ – DJ magazine

“Something truly memorable.” – URB

“Hip-hop genius.” – ATM

“A sonic visionary.” – iDJ

“Basho Basho deserves to put kidkanevil right up there with Flying Lotus.” – Knowledge Magazine

“Thunderous…a vivid display of dexterous beat construction and cultural experimentation. An incredible amount of character bubbles at the surface of evey track.” – okayplayer

“Sparse constellations of lethally-sharpened drum sounds flying around the listener act as a single structure of seemingly impossible strength.” – Wire Magazine

As always your Droppin’ Science heavyweight residents Matman, Nickname & Daredevil will also be on-hand to tear up the dance!

Don’t sleep on East London’s liveliest Hip Hop party, every first Saturday of the month @ Vibe Bar, 91-95 Brick Lane, London E1 6QL

R.I.P. Fresh Cuts Radio

It's official! After hosting & mixing my podcast 'Fresh Cuts Radio' every month for close to 2 years, I've put the series on hold for the foreseeable future.

My reasons? well since last summer I've been putting out the monthly Droppin' Science Show with fellow Droppin' Science members Nickname & Daredevil. It seemed a bit silly curating enough good new hip hop releases for both shows, so now you can simply subscribe to the droppin' science show to hear the cream of the latest hip hop, check here for more info.

I've managed to clock over 4500 subscribers to the show since April '09, so it's been a good run, all the shows are archived for you to listen to or download on my podomatic page.

I now have more time on my hands to create mixtapes of more diverse genres, I have love for all good music & when I'm spinning in clubs I play a wide variety of styles, & want to reflect that in my output. I will now use my existing podcast to regularly drop the listeners a more varied selection of mixes of different genres & themes, which brings me neatly to my next post...
