The soulful smooth grooves of “Reds”, by London/New York newcomer KIDEPO, is the type of great song that immediately grabs my attention with an interesting and unique blend of musical tones and textures. The simple beauty and deliberate tempo allows the song to oscillate all around me, expanding and retracting as if mimicking refreshing breaths of fresh air. I love how the track slowly builds in emotion and intensity with each abstract layer of sound. Culminating in a scrambling pile of sporadic vocals that are somewhat chaotic but unmistakably intriguing at the same time. “Reds” is a solid debut for the up-and-coming singer/producer and I can only hope more great music is just around the corner. KIDEPO is a name to keep an eye on in 2014!
