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 kidkanevil.bandcamp.com

“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!
