Let’s be honest, Kid Kenobi has always been about the party!
Back in the olden days (when he first started DJing) he would throw down sets of earlybreakbeat mixed with party hip hop, old school rave, and jungle. Though he’s journeyed near and far in search of the perfect beat, the close of 2013 seesthe Kid going back to his roots and bringing some of that early flavour back!
‘I want to write the kind of music I actually like to DJ: fun, bouncy, party music! I want there to be less of a gap between my studio and my dancefloor,’ he says.
With that in mind comes his latest jam ‘Bounce!’, featuring the equallyold school party talents of legendary US rapper Bam of the Jungle Brothers. It’s party time, 2014 styleee! ‘Bounce!’ is a bassy bouncy party club bomb featuring the pure hype and rhyme of Bam cut up with the club and bassbeats of the Kid, while the bonus ‘Bass VIP’ sees the Kid flippn’ the script withsome bad ass party trap cut up with a heavy does of old school electro (nothouse) and breaks (it’s coming back peeps!).
On the remix tip come thekingpins of Melbournian bounce Orkestrated with some ravey, techy, jumpy, bounce biz, newcomers Burgs & Reecey Boi who deliver a humungousbouncy bounce-bounce-bounce anthem, COMBO! who jams out a bouncytechy gem, Alex Preston who takes his bounce to the main room, and lastly -but by no means leastly as it’s the Kid’s blood brother and partner in TooFresh crime after all – comes Myli D with a dope 90’s flavoured bass house mix!
