The 21-year old has been performing since mid-2011, and has already toured nationally with Shapeshifter and supported the likes of Elizabeth Rose and Klaxons during his short career.
Unlike these fellow producers, his sound encompasses the electronic to experimental to hip-hop genre, with his smooth and soulful sound reminiscent of the likes of J Dilla and Madlib. His unique sets are delivered using a laptop, electronic drums, samplers and synths which together accomplish a truly unique, live performance. (See Kilter in action in the Pilerats video above).
Recently signed to the independent Australian label etcetc (also home to PNAU), 2013 looks to be a gigantic year for Kilter. With tracks like “Stars”, “Dunno” and “Treat You Right” already receiving plenty of love, we have extremely high hopes for Kilter's upcoming single 'Hold Me' ft. YOUTH - have a listen...we were completely blown away the first time we heard it:
Unsurprisingly, Kilter has already landed a spot in LYFSTYL’s 10 Favourite Australian beatmakers and inthemix’s ‘The New Breed of 2013: Local Producers to Watch’ after his remix of the Ben Pearce track “What I Might Do” (etcetc/MTA) was added to an A rotation on Sydney’s FBi, and received international attention fueled by BBC Radio 1 and Hype Machine support.
This is just the beginning for the youngster - with his slick production, unique style and skilful sampling bound to gain the recognition this captivating talent deserves.
"Hold Me" featuring YOUTH is due to be released in Australia on November 8th through etcetc
