Kid Culture

Kid Culture

Firmly rooted in Amsterdam’s vibrant and ever evolving scene DJ and producer Kid Culture comes with some of the finest flavours on offer. It all started when Kid Culture got his first set of turntables at the age of 12 and started spinning funk and jazz records from his parents vast vinyl collection. It didn’t take long before the Kid got infected – as a lot of Amsterdam DJ’s at the time – with the hip hop virus. The big turning point came in 1988 – the second summer of love – when Amsterdam got its first taste of Chicago house and Detroit techno. Kid Culture instantly got hooked and his musical heroes up to today were the same culprits responsible for introducing these new sounds to Amsterdam way back then: Roxy’s (RIP) resident DJ Dimitri, Detroit legend Derrick May and the French master Laurent Garnier.
By the mid nineties Kid Culture already had residencies at iconic clubs such as Paradiso and Mazzo (RIP). It didn’t take long before he got booked for one the first editions of Awakenings at Amsterdam’s Gasworks, the Borealis festival (FR) and oddly enough several times at the renowned jazz festival of Montreux (CH), which really underlines Kid Cultures broad musical scope. By the turn of the century Kid Culture was producing his own material. Already being a highly skilled DJ the following decade he would dedicate lots of his time and energy to master the craft and become the prolific producer he is today.

2011 was the year when things really took of for Kid Culture. In Holland you’re considered one of the big Don’s once you get booked for Awakenings Festival, Soenda Indoor, Solar, Static at the Beach and Extrema Festival and your records get spinned by jocks of the likes of Steve Lawler, Laurent Garnier, Carl Craig and Pete Tong. His big break abroad was the direct result of the full support his first release on Suara ‘It’s green on the other side’ (2010) and ‘So addictive’ on Remote Area (2011) got from Ricardo Villalobos and Luciano. The heavy rotation of these two tracks landed Kid Culture on the bill of Spanish label Suara’s showcase at Barcelona’s Sonar Festival. To top things of Kid Culture got booked at Berlin’s Tresor. Another Kid’s dream that came true.

By 2012 Kid Culture was an established DJ and producer and together with his stage and studio partner René Engel he has been rocking dance floors nationwide weekend after weekend. His longtime friendship with Engel amounted into the highly acclaimed ’Visions’ EP on the Sincopat label in 2012. Resident Advisor gave a raving revue and rated Kid Culture into the same league where musical connoisseurs such as John Talbot and Kalabrese reside.
Kid Culture got lots of airplay and support on Dance Department – Hollands no.1 EDM radio show – for his Bob Marley remix of ‘Exodus’. Kid Cultures ever ongoing ride of musical awesomeness accumulated into opening for Paul Kalkbrenner at Extrema Outdoor 2012 and 2020 Vision Ralph Lawson firmly claiming the ‘Exodus’ remix to be the pinnacle of his sets at Ibiza’s hallmark club Pacha.

And Kid Culture’s future looks even brighter with the release of his debut solo album set for the summer of 2013 and the collaboration with the We Are E agency. So, look out for Mr. Culture and always remember: today’s kids are tomorrow’s citizens.
