One of South Africa’s biggest electronic music exports, Kyle Watson has talent and sound big enough to carry him and his music across the globe. His music grooves across huge festival stages and sweaty dank clubs alike, and can find a home in your earbuds for both study and shuffle sessions. Watson has released his delectable blend of dark and light melodies on impressive labels like Ultra and Dirtybird, a sure indication that he’s been well-received in the US. His EP, Landmine, is a delicious two-track treat to get you started before you dive into his full discography. Listen below.
Landmine is a great EP to give you a taste of what Kyle Watson produces. The first EP titled track “Landmine” blows up “like a landmine” with low trembly sounds and dark, cool vocals. “The Sample” is a sample of Watson’s chill/groove blend and has a smooth acidic sound with a growling bassline. If you like what you’ve heard so far, catch Kyle Watson at Goldrush on September 27 & 28 – get tickets here.
