kidKANEVIL - Back off Man, I'm a Scientist


Back off Man, I'm a Scientist

First Word Records

Released: 20th October 2008 | 10 track instrumental (east coast) album
kidkanevil is back! Following on from the massive success of last year's 'Problems & Solutions' the talented producer returns with another great set to get your head bouncing. kidkanevil has a crafted a diverse, mature second album - ten tracks of pure quality: all-killer-no-filler. The album takes in a variety of styles including soul (Stomp), hip hop (RIP), afro-reggae (Yuki's Hometown Hifi), downtempo (Ketto Revisited) and beats (Tokyorkshire / Real Wild) all imbued with that unmistakable kidkanevil sound. With a whole host of global musical talent cueing up to work with the kid, the collabs on this are of the highest quality. The UK is represented by the mysterious Double D Dagger on the relentless anti-rap rap anthem 'RIP' - a swaggering critique on the current state of the hip hop world. Germany's electro soul brother number 1 Taprikk Sweezee weighs in on lead-single 'Black Bug' with a jawdropping vocal performance over an unstoppable up-tempo club stomper - this is crazy! Elsewhere Sweden's Kissey Asplund and the highly-acclaimed Californian emcee Blu (doing his finest slick rick English accent!) combine on the sultry 'When I Dig' and kidkanevil's Stateless bandmate Justin Percival lends a fantastic soul-drenched performance to album opener 'Stomp'. The album closes with the brooding Ketto Revisited featuring Ninja Tune's Bonobo, where the two minds meet for a remarkable re-interpretation of the monkey man's original.
"Building on last year’s impressive debut, kidk continues exploring the boundaries of digi-hop. By far one of the most original producers in the UK."
