Within grime Rude Kid’s worked with a ‘whose who?’ of the scene – including Wiley, Skepta, Kano, JME and Ghetto – making him the go to producer for the top artists. He’s received support from BBC Radio 1, Kiss and BBC 1Xtra – from DJs such as Tim Westwood, Mistajam, Toddla T, Logan Sama, Mary Anne Hobbs and Ras Kwame. His diverse production styles have led to his tracks being staples in many a djs record box – including Joker, Plastician, Terror Danjah and Oneman.
Rude Kid’s productions have a unique sound, a sound which he himself describes as Alien Music. Although he covers the traditional grime staples his sound ventures into funky, dubstep – even techno at times. He’s perfectly balanced to sit amongst the current wealth of ‘what you call it?’ dance music thats currently blossoming within the UK underground – and this album sees him serve up his unique interpretation of this.
On tracks like Jack Daniels Rude Kid experiments with a driving 4×4 beat that wouldn’t sit out of place in a techno set, the tracks was recently track of the week on BBC 1Xtra and even has its own video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H-t9Tm-lnk4. On Electric he delivers his take on dubstep and he doesn’t disappoint – coming up with one of the scenes most popular tracks,UFO and Space Dance allow Rude Kid to develop his signature Alien Music sound – something that is subtly present within all the tracks. The album is a diverse journey yet doesn’t feel incoherent – rather Rude Kid delivers a compelling, fresh take on where British underground music is in 2010.
