Kid Be Kid
Everyone agrees on one thing: "I've never seen anything like it!" Since the release of her debut "Sold Out", KID BE KID beamed straight to the big festivals and gave intoxicating concerts to the audience. Be it at the Elbjazz in Hamburg, the legendary Fusion Festival or the important Monument National in the context of the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal - one of the most prominent stages in the world - KID BE KID fascinates the audience with unconditional dedication and unbelievable skills.
The new EP “Lovely Genders” further establishes KID BE KID’s place among today’s great Neo Soul artists. Her songs are characterized by depth of sound and maturity of content. A unique skill set of beatboxing, vocals, piano and synthesizer meets poetic lyrics and rhythmic virtuosity.
Everything about KID BE KID is remarkable. Before she appeared on the scene, it was hard to imagine an artist playing four instruments simultaneously without a loop station, grooving and touching to the max and splitting her voice into several tones. She embodies coolness and vulnerability, structure and freedom, hip hop and jazz equally and makes everything in the room come alive.
Nearly two years have passed since Niklas Paschburg presented his critically acclaimed debut album ‘Oceanic’ in February 2018. Niklas’ musical ideas have crystalised and become cogent through a combination of extensive live performance - playing over 100 shows in the last two years - and experimentation in his Berlin Studio. Written between 2018 and 2019, his second album ‘Svalbard’ was released in February 2020 via 7K!. Niklas’ use of the piano; electronics (synth and computer) and his Grandfather’s piano accordion allow him to communicate via a number of musical traditions and languages. This versatility has allowed him to work on a variety of projects ranging from an inspired reinterpretation of Bach’s Preludes in C Minor (“Blooming”), to well received remixes for pop artists such as RY X and Asgeir.
