For some reason Kidkanevil is one of those producers who remained in my guilty pleasures filing cabinet - I love you lot but I don't actually share everything I listen to with you, (I have seem to have DJ mentality, just not the skills). It's time.
Check him out, I truly cannot find a single thing he's made I'm not feeling - you can download his first album Problems and Solutions from his myspace but you need to buy his second Back Off Man, I'm a Scientist, ft Blu, Kissey Asplund, Bonobo, Justin Percival & Taprikk Sweezee. I'm going to take it further - I think he might be one of my top 5 favourite producers around at the moment (I will not divulge who the others are, dangerous territory).
Here's a mix he made recently for Wax Poetics, and you can catch him DJing at Herbal on 6th Feb for the Frank n Dank Doctors Orders Party - which we'll all obviously be at.
