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.
Uniquely dressed with the power to say things in ways that have not been said before, Dreamkidd is surely one of a kind. With no comparisons or similarities to current UK rappers, he stands alone.
“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.

The Black and White album shows you that a grime MC can transform into an established uk artist. Wrecth 32 recently secured his first uk number one with “Dont Go” ft Josh Kumra giving the driving force for the album. Many people say that Grime Mc’s Can never hold a track without a Featured artist, the black and white proves this statement to be true by the amount of Ft’s on the album. In defence to the album and to counter act the statement, i would say that this allows the artist’s to cross over to many genre’s.
Back in 2007 you can only see that wretch 32 would be destined for great things, off the starting block with a different outlook on music and visuals
