Kai Whiston has lined up his forthcoming Big Dada-released EP by sharing “Icarus”. It’s a densely packed exploration of disparate sounds and comes with an assist from South London's BUCHANAN. Kai has alchemy-like production skills, twisting and melding beats and styles to create something totally unpredictable, totally unique.
Discussing the new material, Kai said: “This is an unveiling of some of the grim and humorous sounds I've been up to. More than anything, I wanted to portray a playful and juvenile sense of humour that I felt was missing in the music I was making and hearing, which ended up being a total blast to make. I was thoroughly intrigued in using aggressive sound as a mark-making tool and explore the malleability of sonics in a painterly & silly way. Actively running away from my direct influences & creating a universe around this sound was a really great process that had me laughing the whole time."
Aged 18, Dorset-based Kai first got into production age 12, teaching himself “with Google Chrome and 50 tabs open”.
