In the year that saw Kill the Noise and Kayzo slay at Villa, Hiline rounds out the year with the biggest one yet, our Touch Bass hero, SLUSHII and introducing – K?D.
When Slushii started trickling into the trap scene not much was known about who he was – but those innovative sounds ‘n styles on remix after remix (Kaskade, Galantis + I See MONSTAS and Botnek) were future-bass-delicious. A year in, we got the full reveal and after a phenomenal performance at TOUCH BASS earlier this year, he is officially our FAVOURITE.
Hailing from New Jersey, you would never guess such a prolific producer is just 20. Slushii’s explosion over the least year has seen him adept at everything from trap to ambient drum & bass and has delivered an onslaught of records and remixes. He has quickly gained the attention of some of the largest international DJ’s & tastemakers including Skrillex, Diplo, Jauz and Marshemello just to name a few. His first EP, Brainfreeze, accumulated almost 2 million collective streams, had plays on Electric Area, with various tracks reaching top 3 on rotation, and reached number 4 on the iTunes dance charts. Now he arrives on the heels of the release of ‘Out of Light’ and we could not be more AMPED.
May the slush be with you.
Pronounced ‘kid’ this 19 year old producer is being hailed as the next Porter Robinson – his remix of Porter’s ‘Sad Machine’ track is pretty damn tasty. In an expanding web of all too similar sounding future bass producers, K?D’s raw and eclectic touch to surging synths and clashing beats have been delivering electrifying tracks which have refreshed the mundane tastes of many. The young producer combines future bass and trap to create intricate, intriguing soundscapes and always brings an interesting new perspective to each track he touches – check his remix of The Weeknd’s ‘Starboy’ ft Daft Punk. K?d is currently on his first national headlining tour of the US and we’re thrilled to have him in Perth on his first Australian tour.
