Vocalist, producer & songwriter Kid Fiction came to electronic music after several years spent busking and playing in roots reggae bands in his hometown of Sydney. Blending a wide variety of musical influences, from Dub and Afrobeats to Footwork, Future Beats, and Warp styled IDM, his music is full of animation, melody and memory, grounded in tradition but with eyes to the horizon.
His spirited live sets have brought him to stages at Listen Out, Subsonic, Yours & Owls, as well as events by Red Bull Music Academy, Club Gretchen in Berlin and Vivid Live. 2018 has seen Kid Fiction break out of the box with a debut EP, received with widespread acclaim from XLR8R and Indie Shuffle to Double J and Unearthed.
Pilerats described it as “a gripping release from start to finish… one of the most interesting sounds we’ve heard in a while”
Forever restless, Kid Fiction is already busy finishing his follow up EP. Due in September, the 6 track release will spotlight a more energetic and uplifting side to the artists music that’s sure to keep Australian crowds moving over summer.
