Not wasting any time, Sydneysider Kid Fiction releases his much anticipated single What Defines You after the success of his critically-acclaimed debut EP that was released earlier this year.
In a media release for the new single, the producer, vocalist and performer says, “What Defines You was like wrestling a gorilla. It’s really big, the themes, the concept and production… it was actually quite intimidating. No place for half measures.”
Being heavily influenced by musical styles from Dub and Afrobeat, to Footwork, Future Beats and Warp-styled IDM, Kid Fiction mastered a sound that is uniquely his. Since finding his artistic voice, he has created a discography that is full of animation, melody and memory. The newly-released single, which is a combination of sweetly sung melodies and provocative lyrics, is a mature and patient electronic think-piece.
Lucky for you FIB-readers, Kid Fiction has some upcoming Australian gigs. If you want to hear more from the artist who is a rising name in the Australian electronic music scene, you can see him, hopefully near you, on the following dates:
November 30 @ Subsonic Music Festival – Monkerai Valley, Australia
December 7 @ Rael Haus – Newcastle Australia
