Is There Nothing This Kid Can’t Do?
Rude Kid surely is one of the UK’s most influential producers right now and this track continues to underline exactly why. For many Rude Kid is still seen as a newbie but given the continual ways this guy innovates, creating iconic sounds means Rude Kid is in serious demand and ‘Please Don’t’ is another statement of intent.
Providing a spellbinding fusion of nostalgia as house and garage currents pulsate along together with a shimmering and soulful vocal from Nahli, this latest offering is distinctly Rude Kid and an exemplary offering at that. ‘Please Don’t is impassioned, crisp and has a soft undertone that blankets the bouncy beat. Piano melodies are sprinkled in to the mix, while soft symbols chime in to the hook to give the record a multitude of layers and depth crafted perfectly together.
Having become a vital component in the rise of the UK urban scene, Rude Kid has put his sound to remixes for the likes of Marshmello, Laura Mvula, Gorgon City, Chase & Status and Wilkinson. His own productions are probably some of your favourite records by the likes of Skepta, Wiley, Kano or Ghetts whilst his passion and understanding of musical genres has seen him take the helm at Kiss FM’s destination grime show #KissGrime. Yet although “his tag will be instantly recognizable to anyone who listens to underground UK music, he is much more than “just” a grime producer” (PIGEONS & PLANES). His compelling DJ ability has awarded him with main stages and festival bookings including Strawberries & Cream, We Are FSTVL and Snowboxx, and after being being head hunted to join the Eskimo Dance crew on their Australian tour, he’ll be hitting the decks around Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane later this year, alongside household favourites DJ Target, Wiley, Lethal Bizzle, Devlin, P Money, Big Shaq and more.
With the likes of DJ Mag forecasting Rude Kid’s future and recently stating that “it’s time for the producer to have his moment to shine”, ‘Please Don’t’ is at the forefront to deliver their statement.
