It's been a good year! There's been some ups and downs but 
deffinately more ups! At least I remember them more anyway!
I'm gonna say a lot, but to keep your attention I'm gonna post pretty
pictures. Hope you guys had a good 2011 yourselves and have a good 2012 :)

lol I made myself a CV

this amazing track which I'd been coveting got released FOR FREE

Beasts In the Basement V I P by Reso 

I got a job that paid me seven quid an hour handing out leaflets
and I could pretty much pick my own hours, or if I wanted to work 
any hours at all, that was pretty cool! Elderly woman who would have
smoke breaks near my spot was pretty jokes too, good times!

 Started doing interviews with artists, first act being Cutline

My flashgun which I got for christmas (had to wait longer than that for it to
actually get here from china though) goes kaput on it's 2nd or 3rd fucking gig
  Got really sick and missed a couple of gigs, got an infection on my finger!
Doctors had to operate on it and everything, you don't want to be 
in the theatres where no one is acting...
February wasn't all bad got a few bookings as well as my interview with
Elite Force sorted which I was pretty happy about, but some parts did suck...

 first practice shoot with my friend the Queen!


had my worse gig ever :( Was taking pics and set for my first DJ set
at Cable but someone spilt their drink on my camera and I didn't get to
play because they shut early as not enough people came down. Lord that hurt.

Saw Stephen Fry at work!

Played at a squat party for the first time. 
Hope it doesn't end up being the only time...


got my camera replaced and got new lenses which I tested out at this massive event :)


played my first set at cable :) 


did jury service on my birthday :(
got let off it early because I fell asleep in court though :)

saw jakes play, he was sick!


people rioting because a drug dealer got shot :/ 

lost my job :(

nottinghill carnival! pineapple tribe smashed it again!
lost all my friends then met them later at a houseparty
good times :)


 had my best set of the year at cable after winning a mix competition :)

got myself a not nice t-shirt :)

best mix I've heard this year, period!

who've done so consistently and even more so to those who have paid me ;)

My first ever released attempt at making music is finally here!
And due to the technical side of things you can kind of tell...
I do like the ideas though, could have spent forever perfecting 
them but I thought getting them out there to see what people
think was healthier. Hopefully the as I keep on going the 
improvements will be noticed! Anyway enough talking the EP is
bellow for you to listen to as well as the mediafire download
link (let me know if it expires) or whatevs. Bellow all that I'll
let you know what was going through my head on each tune,
if this isn't enough of me talking for you...

Angeroo was an efm1 (I use logic) exercise, all the sounds minus 
the drum samples being made with that one synth, on the next EP
there'll be a tune which started off as an es2 exercise.
Wanted to make a straightforward dubstep track that has heavy but
simple and not tear out, think I achieved that without keeping it
overly repetitive which I quite liked, the sounds switch around alot
Too Much
Really enjoyed playing about with the drums on this, just wish I
was better with manipulating the bass, the idea I had for this track
by far surpassed my current ability! Side chain shizz was pretty fun
too, Submerse aint got shit on me...
Too Cool 
This track was fun, think I got too excited over the finger snaps 
sample, hence the name of the tune, which should probably be
really called too fast, I don't think it has even one slow section...
If you've gotten this far thanks for reading, It's appreciated!
Got my stuff on youtube too if you're not into your soundcloud
or whatever. Big shouts to everyone who gave me a hand here 
and there, this EP would be a lot worse without you!
Also put out a mix recently, if you've still got enough space left
in your throat for me to shove my stuff into on my mixcloud
If you wana get at me check my facebook
Right hope you guys enjoy it, feedback positive or negative is welcomed!
thanks for reading and listening, cya!

upgrades :)

Finally got some upgrades sorted out! Didn't even take that long,
I just took long to get around to doing them... Finally got a photography
tab up, as it's not like it's what bring most of you revellers here anyway...

Soundcloud has also been revamped, in preparation for my first EP! 
All the tunes I make will now be uploaded onto my soundcloud,
with my mixes going onto my mixcloud, even made a new mix to
celebrate this (any fucking excuse to make a mix is all I need)

give it a listen, it's 30 minutes long and as heavy as fuck!
If it were a person, it'd be morbidly obese :)
also has some of my tunes on there :D

 The EP will be out tomorrow, cya then!

Thursday, 22 December 2011


Really happy that someone's finally been interested enough in my 
stuff to want to give me an interview! Today, Dubheadz, tomorrow
The Daily Mail (soz had to keep the alliteration going) and the day 
after, the world! Soon Khris With A K shall rule all! WAHAHAHAHAA!!!!

Anyway, till then I will be sorting out some blog upgrades, and will be
dropping my ep inbetween now and new years, just got to sort out the
art work. You can hear some of my up and coming tunes on the mix I
did for dubheadz anyway, just check the link bellow and you'll see it.

 (click on link for tracklist)

That's all from me for now but should have something to say in the
next few days. At any rate, Merry Christmas Movvaluvva's!

I know it's my own photo but that looks so fucking cool!

Was taking shots at what may be my final gig of 2011, and it
was worthy of it being my last one for 2011 if it is, was a really
good night with really good music and I'm pretty happy with the
photos I took down there! Free pints are always welcome too...

I went down to Kings Cross' Big chill House which was holding the 
Rift Valley festival, some seriously good vibes, reccomend you
keep up with them by clicking on the links bellow!

 Right here we have an interview with dubstep DJ/producer Skit who's just 
released a new free E.P.! He's here to give us a few words but if you cba for that,
then you can listen to it bellow in the soundcloud link and you download it 
from his facebook page, enjoy!


Before we start, why the name Skit? 
My friend gave me the nickname skitz when I was like 12 or 13 because I was
just a weird hyper little kid and people still call me that today but obviously
there is skitz beats and DJ skitz so I couldn't just use that for my artist name so
I took the z off. Now I get loads of stick from Swedish people hahaha

Now that we've started, where did you start with music? 
I've been doing music for quite a while. I started playing the trumpet when I was
about 7 or 8 and played in an orchestra for a little bit when I was younger. I 
started playing guitar when I was 14 and played in bands until about 3 years ago
when I lost the passion to do it any more. I took a production course at college
for a year after doing 2 years of music performance and got really into it.

where do you get your influences from, got any interesting favourite
musicians we might not expect? Guilty pleasures included!  

 I listen to all types of music really I'm obviously a huge fan of burial, etched
headplate just does something else to me. I'm also a big fan of noisia, biome,
phaeleh, coven, stumbleine, chasing shadows, koreless, kryptic minds, goth trad,
dmz, I'm missing out loads but I could go on all day. Noisia are the main influence
for my heavier stuff though, the way they manipulate their basses is crazy.

My parents used to play a lot of the 90's dance stuff when I was growing up so I
grew up listening to stuff like everything but the girl, corona, etc. My dad has
always been really into motown and a lot of the overly epic 80's stuff like tears 
for fears and the pet shopboys which are 2 of my guilty pleasures haha

We met when we played at Cable, in London, whereas you're actually from Guildford
which isn't exactly in London...What's the bass scene and clubbing like over there? 
There are a few nights in Guildford and they are all run by the same people
mainly Tim Subterra, George Aston and Mr Fame. They put on good nights but
not that many people in Guildford are into underground music. A lot of the 
music nights around here are band nights, there are only a few club nights.
they are doing a good thing though and kanefm (the station run by Mr Fame)
recently went legal and I'm going to be doing a pilot show for them real soon. 
Surely, being a music student in Guildford means you're into metal and that 
you can play a guitar right? I can see that you've got the flesh tunnels sorted!  
hahahha there isnt a metal scene in guildford tbh.  I think i went to one  
night to sell merch for my mates band and there was probably about 5 people  
in the venue that wernt in the bands playing. I still listen to some metal  
though i spent most of my young teenage years listening to it. 
Back on track now, you're here to talk about your new E.P. which you have  
recently released. It contains two tracks, Intimate, a nice chilled tune and  
Calling which is heavier but still quite melodic and not exactly tearout. 
Both tracks have quite a nice flow to them and I would recommend both! 

What  was going through your head when you made these two contrasting tunes? 

Tbh when I write a tune I cant sit down and be like ok I'm going to make this  
style of tune and if I try I usually end up writing the complete opposite of what I 
set out to. I usually just write whatever im in the mood for at the time. When I 
wrote calling i had just watched american pie for the first time in ages and the
vocal is from the track playing in the background when jim strips for nadia. When I 

wrote intimate i just wanted to write something really deep and emotive. I had 

been listening to alot of chilled stuff at the time i was writing it and I wanted 
the ep to be diverse so people dont think im just a one trick pony. 

You told me you just started making some sounds for a collaboration and  
you also want to make some liquid drum and bass tunes as well. Is it looking  
like 2012 is going to be good to you then? Apart from the end of world of course...

Yeah I just started work on a collab with someone I don't really want to say
who yet but he is an amazing producer and I am always looking up to him 
for inspiration to work harder.

As for the liquid track I just want to make a nice melodic roller of a 
track that's still upbeat and fast paced. I like tunes like that. 

Hopefully 2012 goes well for me, I can't wait for my next release to show
people how much more I can do. I wrote calling like 5 moths ago and I have 
tightened up my production a lot since then.

Lastly anyone out there who you want to put on our radar?  

You should definately check out Coven , Dark0 and Relay and Front. 

All of them are criminally underrated and making some amazing music 

 Please keep up with Skit and myself on the following links!



And that is all! Hope you all enjoyed Skit's new E.P. and what he had to say about himself! For my regulars I'm on break from uni so gonna hopefully  have a shit load to talk about over the days, and if not hope you all have a merry christmas plus a happy new year!

Was another great Z-Shed as per usual, crazy bass all over the place!
First time I'd been to Hidden as well, interesting interior and nothing
like heaters and shelter in the smoking area, specially in this weather...

Was down there taking pictures instead of doing uni work, it's not
like I have a deadline on thursday or anything, I'm totes in control.

I'm going to leave you to the pics as I try to get on with some other work!
Also should have some musical goodies for you this month if all goes well,

THEM! fukken smashed it more than I smashed myself last night!
It was a massive night at corsica. I think my favourite thing about
that venue is that you can hear the bass shaking the walls in 
the toilets! Their spacey green room ain't half bad either...

Headliners MJ Cole and Wookie fully brought it to whichever raver
so much as thought "Come at me brah", every dj was keeping it 
slick, spesh with a sweet afrobeat sesh from Gordon Wedderburn.

As you've probably guess I was there taking pictures!
Check the details bellow for all of your pictorial and
contact details enquiries.

peace muvaluvas.

khris with a k keepin 'em moovin ;)

Urgh! Barely been posting coz I've not been about as much due to uni! 
I do intend to show you some of my design work by the way, just you wait!

Anyway, last week I was a bit busy as I warmed up for Dub Chemistry in
Gravesend, Kent! Was my first set outside the city, which was a cool
experience, hopefully wont be the furthest I travel out to play though!

After that I was in more familiar territory as I played for Wuja Wuja's Dub 
Juice in Brixton! My favourite part was when the promoter told me that
during my set people were going to the bar saying it was the best music
they'd ever heard! Yes, probably a slight exaggeration but I'll have it!

Will be playing for them again on the 10th of December, with the
up and coming Dream headlining, so make sure you come down!
click on the picture for deets

As for this weekend I will be taking some pictures 
down at Corsica for THEM, with MJ Cole headlining!

I think that just about covers everything I have to say
 cyars, latars
hatars, playars
and of course

p.s. if you're reading this thanks, you've helped me reach 6k views, safe n ting

The London Borough Of Bass smashed it again, absolutely ramming the 
venue with rotting carcasses and the worst excuse for music you'll ever hear!
The bar couldn't even hack the music, they started moaning coz apparently 
the bass was shaking the bottles off of the shelves, was a hectic night indeed!

Was a sweet variety of music with the DJs in each room keeping the genres
as unpredictable as they could get and I'd challenge anyone to recall a track
they heard twice! Crowd was also sweet with everyone putting good effort into
dressing up and dancing! Hope to see a bit more of this before the end of the
year and I hope even more to see more nights like this in the new one!
not too much though, don't think I'll be able to keep up, mad unfit D:

I was down there bouncing around and taking pictures as you might of guessed!
Check the links bellow for all the info on the night, the photos etc, etc!

 link for full tagable gallery inside

for all that I know this night was mainly promoted
by THEM & Z-SHED but THEM's facebook page is full

so that we can make sandwiches

Was another sick night down at Idiosynphonic!
Big shouts to all those who came down yet again,
especially the early birds who rinsed it out during 
my warm up set, very much appreciated as ever!

As well as spin a few tracks I was also taking several 
pictures so check the links bellow for those details!

This'll be my first interview with someone who I've never seen before,
as well as my first one with a female! Two birds with one stone...

Amara Por Dios is a Swedish Illustrator who's work I discovered via a
friend liking her page over Facebook! Funnily enough they are both
trainer fanatics so I will be crediting my friend Jess for this, will be
putting her tumblr and website at the bottom!

Anyway back to Amara! Well tbh as I don't know her too well personally 
I think it'd be best if I shut up, and let the interview do the talking!

This is my first interview with someone who I haven't met face to face in 
London! Where exactly are you from and how many languages can you speak?

I'm born and raised in Sweden. My both parents are from Chile. So I’m Swedish with Chilean heritage. I'm from Stockholm but at the moment I live in Uppsala. I speak Swedish, English and I understand Spanish but I can't speak it fluently. I understand a little bit of French because I studied back at school but I never continued. I regret it now because I love Paris and I travel there a lot.

What I've gathered from your blog is that you're into your graffiti, trainers, stickers and dance. Your life basically seems to revolve around hip-hop! How much of an influence 
would you say it has on you?

I would say that hip-hop have been in my life as long I can remember. My big sister listened to hip-hop when I grew up. I had a freestyle with a recorded cassette with 2pac and mob deep when I was 8 years old. I remembered when I came home from school and my big sister screamed 2pac is dead 2pac is dead! I think she had a lot of influence on me.
Now she thinks I’m listening to too much hip-hop.

I wrote my first rap lyrics when I was 11 and I wanted to become a rapper. When I was 12 I began with breaking and at the same time I started with graffiti. My cousins are graffiti writers and I wanted to be like them. Breaking and graffiti were the only things I did for a few years. I gave up breaking when I was 16 and started with popping (electric boogaloo) instead. I also stopped with the graffiti because I got stuck and didn't get any inspiration. After I while I realized that I had to just paint and create from my own mind and not to try to be like anybody else. The last 
2 years I’ve been very creative. I have come up with a unique and different style and I think I have found my thing.

One cruel person (like myself) makes you pick between your 
loves that are paints and your trainers. Which one's it gonna be?

What a dilemma. Haha.

Sneakers are a huge part of me but art is everything I am. I can't live without it. 
I think I would get mentally mad if I couldn't paint, draw, design, and create.

Seriously I think sneakers are a drug and I’m addicted to them. It's hard to 
not get the sneakers I want sometimes but I can be without them for a while.

How would you describe your work? The abstract characters you use as well as the fact that you love your cans reminds me of the graffiti artists over here in London who'd rather paint pictures on walls rather than just their name.

Two artists from London that I love are INSA and Banksy. I get a lot of inspiration from them. I only used cans regularly for two years now. So I’m a beginner still. I think I’ve 
only done around 15 pieces. I really want to learn more and develop my skills.

My grandmother was an artist. I spend a lot of time in her studio when I was little. We painted a lot together. I was a tomboy growing up I loved monsters and slime. I always drew characters with their tongue out and crazy eyes. When I got older I drew a lot of faces. Now I paint a lot of patterns and characters in bright colours. I think I get inspiration subconsciously from the Inca/Aztec culture. A lot of people think my work reminds them of Indian artwork. I understand their point of view and I see similarities. Now I’m interested in getting influences from the Asian and African culture.

What's the illustration scene like in Sweden? I'm not even sure if any of the Swede's I know can draw so I am pretty clueless as to what it's like over there!

I think it's quite big here. There’s a lot of great artist in Sweden. 
My personal favourite I would say is FINSTA.

What's the likelihood of seeing your work in London? I'm pretty sure it'd go down pretty well! You got any exhibitions abroad planned?

Actually I tried to find some art galleries in London couple of months ago. I would 
love to have a show there. So if you know any place please let me know.

In December I will have a show in Sweden with Infamous JeanClaude from the US. I'm 
very exited and it's his first international show. I hope I will have my first 
international exhibition soon as well.

You won a t-shirt competition for Flying Lotus who you're a fan I believe, which saw your designs sell out when he toured Japan! Also more recently I noticed that your tumblr got posted up by non other than the official Nike Women's facebook page! What other proud moments have you had?

Yes I still can't believe it. It means a lot to me.

Girls got kicks just released. It's a sneaker documentary book about girls who 
have a lot of sneakers. And I’m in it. I haven't seen it yet, I can't wait to see it.

I'm also in a Swedish documentary film about sneaker collectors in Sweden. 
The documentary are still in process and it will be finished in a couple of months. 

Finally is there anybody out there that you think the whole world should get to know?

Check out Infamous JeanClaude I’m having the art show with.

Amara also left us with a video if her images weren't enough for you!

Amara @ AOTS 2011 from Leif Egnell on Vimeo.

Big thanks to Amara for doing this interview, and also thanks to Jess
(she doesn't even know she's helped me yet!) for helping me stumble upon her!
Please look bellow at the links for the both of them!






(it's a website for people with small feel (s1-7) who have a hard time getting good kicks)

yes I know I just did brackets within brackets. and what?



Amongst all this trainer luvin I may as well say I got me somenew kicks. It's normally 
such a pain buying trainers when you have size 12 feet as stores normally go up to 11
  and run out of size 12s quickly.I do like my trainers but I only ever have 3 pairs of foot wear at a time. Smart shoes, football studs and trainers. I'm poor and unfussy like that. When I get my trainers the first thing I do is redo the laces, takes hour but it's worth it!

hate it when the laces go all lopsided...
