Kid be Kid
Whatever metaphors and superlatives one may think of, and even if it is a well used cliché: it is really very difficult to describe the music of the phenomenal Berlin artist who is calling herself KID BE KID. She really is a sensation. Listening to KID BE KID while she is simultanously singing and beatboxing, playing the piano and synths, is simply breathtaking. How does she do that? Where is this incredible power coming from? With such an somnambulistic certainty of style? Speaking of which: It is by no means only just one style that she can be pinned down to. KID BE KID blurs genre boundaries playfully and fluidly. There are jazzy pianos, funky R&B grooves, clubby sci-fi synth pads and electronic patterns, and on top: her expressive soul vocals. Great pop with an exclamation mark. Wow! Is this the future of soul? Future soul? Another well used genre term. With KID BE KID it could actually fit.
