#sxsw #SonofKick


Listen to Playing The Villain

Producer, DJ, vocalist and multi instrumentalist Son Of Kick is making waves with his bumping, super-charged live set. A bass-feast packed full of electro, dubstep, heavy grooves and the insanely unpredictable. Catch him dropping acapella’s from Method Man or rocking snippets from the Violent Femmes alongside his own productions. On a playing field of his own right now, it was friend and vocalist RQM that recently coined his new ‘bass’ style, ‘Psychostep’.

Based in West London, S.O.K.’s sound & style has already been picked up by various labels including the Stanton Warrior’s own Beat’s and pioneering London imprint Botchit and Scarper. Recent remix credits include work for labels such as Equinox Records and Man Recordings in Germany, ESL Music (Washington DC), Civil Music (UK), and Om Records (San Francisco). Out early December 2k10 his single “Guacha” on Equinox (Germany) has received major props from Rob Da Bank at Radio 1 through to Emynd (Mad Decent) and smashed air waves and dancefloors across the glob.
The same year he has remixed tracks for musos such as: Bassnectar, Jil Is Lucky, Nfa/Roots Manuva, Talen and Dj Troubl/Foreign Beggars and also has produced tracks for Grems “BrokaBilly” album.

In 2011, S.O.K. has co-produced an album, alongside the French dj/producer Simbad for the new collective project “Klub Sandwich” with Grems & Disiz La Peste (ex-Rouge A Levre). Also producing tunes for the next Foreign Beggars’ EP.
His solo EP “Playing The Villain” featuring: Machinedrum, Chris De Luca, Jantsen and Bang On! Came out last April on San Francisco top Glich label MUTI Music and hit a huge 3 million+ views on Youtube and his new EP “From Here” featuring: RQM has just dropped again on Muti Music.
