Some of the greatest artists in history have a spot in the musical hall of fame for being the pioneers of a brand new sound. Dreamkidd is one of these people. Uninterested in following the generic formula of UK hip hop, he incorporates synthpop and new-wave into his mix of powerful yet smooth sound. Dreamkidd describes his music as being dark, different and dirty. He brings together an eclectic range of different musical genres, to create what can only be described as alternative hip hop.
Dreamkidd has a great affinity for 80’s, house and new wave music, citing Phil Collins, Duran Duran, Softcell and Kavinsky as his personal favorites and influences. He has combined his love for the aforementioned artists into the production of his music to give it that enigmatic and inexplicable sound. He’s a rapper that likes mixing it up.
Primarily focusing on detail, Dreamkidd likes his music to be graphic and uses carefully constructed lyrics and complex wordplay that leaves listeners hanging onto his every word. He is inspired by rappers, Kanye West, Eminem, Drake and Joe Budden.
“I don’t believe that I could be similar to anyone, being that my music comes from inside my own head. It’s better to leave it up to interpretation’.
Dreamkidd has already written and produced an album and is in the process of recording a palette of new material with a kaleidoscope of sounds. He plans on making his mark in the Music industry and show people something different; the type of sound that is rarely seen in mainstream hip hop.
