Kid Drama started buying vinyl at a young age as he watched techno fuse into hardcore, mutate into jungle and splinter off into various Drum & Bass forms throughout the 90’s. This experience played a major part of spawning his own sub-genre as one half of Instra:mental.
After connecting with like-minded Exit Records boss-man dBridge they formed “The Autonomic Podcast” aimed at showcasing a more stripped back form of Drum & Bass with punchy drum machines and vintage synthesizers, echoing back to 80’s film scores blended with a heavy Warp Records and Detroit influence.
Instra:mental won DJ Magazine awards two years in a row with ”Best Breakthrough Producers” and then “Best Compilation” for the legendary Fabric Live 50 mix alongside dBridge, and club night of the same name at London's infamous Fabric. With an untouchable catalogue of synth driven D&B, Electro, Techno and Bass music, Instra:mental ended the chapter to pursue solo careers.
Kid Drama returned his focus to Drum & Bass, spanning the full spectrum and having fun with it again; from Boards of Canada inspired washed out soundscapes, 90’s golden era tech step to Trap infusions on the Kid Drama produced EP for Alia Fresco. Constantly switching up his studio set ups for the fear of sticking to a formula and going stale, Kid Drama also frequently collaborates with like minded producers (read geeks) splicing styles with long time collaborator dBridge, Skeptical, Ulterior Motive, Om Unit, Fracture, DLR..
After releasing on prestigious labels such as Exit Records and Goldie’s legendary Metalheadz, Drama returns to his own CNVX imprint to build solid foundations with an array of respected artists and visual direction from Mr.Penfold.
