Kideko (GB)

Having peaked at #41 on the UK Shazam Chart back in June, ‘The Jam’ joins the dots between Technotronic’s classic dance record ‘Pump Up The Jam’ and the fresh, bass-slanted brand of UK house that has revolutionised dance floors over the last 12 months. Bubbling rhythm, deep-set baselines and colourful percussive flourishes - all built around iconic ‘Pump Up The Jam’ vocal inserts - gives the record a tangible sense of rhythm and groove that feel perfectly attune to the demands of 2015’s bustling house & bass scene. Kideko, a producer with official remix work for the likes of Sigma and Shift K3y to his name - as well as current reworks of both John Newman’s ‘Come And Get It’ and Kove’s ‘Hurts’ - has been earmarked as one of the future stars of UK dance music since the turn of the year. With the record enjoying so much early support, ‘The Jam’ feels perfectly positioned to feed into the buzz already surrounding his name and grant Kideko a fully-warranted breakthrough.
