BIO I am not really a story guy, it feels so difficult to force myself into a couple sentences but here are some key elements of my story: I am Kid de Mooi a.k.a. the SNGNGDCK based in London/Budapest. I started this songwriting shit with rapping in 2012 but my shit was way to abstract and immature so I gave upon my dreams of becoming a rap superstar. I got back to songwriting in 2014 when my little brother Tonye sent me beats to ask about my opinion. Instead of giving an opinion I fucked up these beats with some freestyle jazz singing. Tonye & Glott! are From The Shadow who provide my production ever since. I experimented with 80’s new wave style and electropunk. I made my debut EP ‘Man In The Broken Mirror’ (you never gonna find that. I’m hiding that shit).
Who are your top 5 influences? Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Wonder, Maverick Sabre, Childish Gambino & the afrorock movement as a whole but Osibisa is the best. When are your new projects coming out? I dropped my second EP
#eNERGIES on the 8th of December so right now Im trying to draw attention to it and tryna get it to a wide audience but I started working on my debut LP. A real psychedeluc funky shit. A trippy funk journey ála Kid de Mooi.
What helped you get into music? Well Im gonna tell you who got me into songwriting. I used to do rapping but for real… it was my little brother, Tonye Adesida a.k.a. one half of the ‘ From The Shadow ‘ producer duo. He sent me a beat back then and I started vibing to it and ended up writing singer shit.
What is one thing you would tell your fans? Never trust a politician!
What are your biggest goals for 2017? To get more recognition for my EP
#eNERGIES , to shoot two music videos, release at least two singles from my debut LP, start selling my merchandise and to have a famous feature for my LP. It will be a hella busy year fosho lol.
