DJ SETS | LIVE APPEARANCES
Hailing from the small market town of Kettering, Northamptonshire, Just Kiddin have placed no limitations on their sound. Having already gained props from industry heavy weights such as Duke Dumont, Tensnake, Gorgon City and The Magician, the last 18 months have been nothing short of defining for this on-form UK duo.
Having grown up together from a young age, Lewis and Laurie have created a unique production recipe that is firmly focused on the art of creating organic, multi-dimensional music. 2013 saw Just Kiddin make their introduction via Nurvous Records with the ‘Intimacy’ EP. Their follow up release ‘Time, Space & Honey’ came on Ministry Of Sound’s underground imprint HK Records. The online support was overwhelming with features on Clash, Noisey, Sub Soul, Topman CTRL and Eton Messy, which saw Just Kiddin starting to play shows around the UK alongside acts such as Bohdi, Second City, Leftwing & Kody and Cause & Effect.
Just Kiddin’s breakthrough came when they were invited to remix Claptone’s summer hit ‘No Eyes’ on Exploited Records. Their remix was premiered exclusively by Mixmag and went on to feature in their Top 10 Exclusive Downloads of 2013 at #4, garnering a cool three million views on YouTube channel The Sound You Need along the way.
Closing the year with a double feature on Black Butter Records’ ‘Spread Love Vol. 3’ compilation, Just Kiddin laid the foundations for a glittering 2014 with their bona fide summer anthem ‘Thinking About It’ via an exciting partnership between Parlophone’s burgeoning dance imprint FFRR and leading UK tastemakers Eton Messy Records.
After being secretly premiered as the opening track on The Magician’s ‘Magic Tape 41’, and featuring as an untitled track on Soundcloud channel #Unknown, ‘Thinking About It’ instantly caught the attention of music lovers worldwide and went on to receive over two-million plays online. The support continued on radio with the record receiving over 50 plays across BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra including Annie Mac, Nick Grimshaw and Pete Tong. It was also internationally recognised with national airplay in the US, Australia, Germany, Belgium, Sweden and Spain.
With a growing worldwide fan-base, Just Kiddin have exactly what it takes to be the UK’s next breakthrough act.
