We’re in a dark nightclub. The DJ slams in a CD, hits play, the beat kicks in and he proceeds to take the roof off the place. The next DJ, one Judge Jules, setting up for his own set, sees the damage done and asks what the hell the track is. The DJ passes it to him and Jules proceeds to put it straight back into the C-DJ and hit play… and then once more, to end his set. Jules plays it on Radio 1 six weeks in a row, making it his “Tried and Tested” and saying on air that K2 is “the best example I’ve heard of really getting the balance right: great chords, huge atmosphere and groovy undertone.” ...
The producer is known only by the name written in indelible ink on the CD-R - Kryder - and the track is K2. By now punters across the nation are clamouring to know who Kryder is. Debates surface on You Tube and dance forums. Labels, managers, punters… they seek him here… they seek him there. Well, this is the only place where you will find him. And find the truth.
Think you can handle the truth? Well fix yourself a glass of something both powerful and medicinal and sit down because here is comes: Kryder is comprised of a man in a wrap-around visor and top hat… and a dwarf in a Mexican wrestling mask. “We don’t just want to turn up with a bag of records and some headphones,” says Kryder himself. “We want to weird people out, disturb them, upset them.” Believe. Kryder marks nothing less than the return of a dark showmanship to the circus ring of clubland.
So how did Kryder begin? Well there’s the mystery – indeed, what dark arts unfold in shadowy corners when the circus comes to town? There’s talk of an East European connection, where the disco amigos of Kryder – Kryder and the diminutive Dokta Kaotika – met… either in a club, in a ditch, or in a brothel, depending on who you talk to. What is certain is that they both live and breathe nightclubs and they know, more than anything, that what’s been missing is the presence of showmanship, of style: “The scene does lack it a bit,” Kryder nods, sagely. “This is a bit Rock & Roll. Or Wrong & Roll.
” While the presentation may well give you nightmares and require a not inconsiderable course of psychoanalysis, the music is deadly serious, as Kryder are already an award-winning DJ and production team: “We’re producing music that stands up in any club,” saysKryder. Tiesto’s label Musical Freedom won a hugely competitive battle to sign K2, proactively seeking out Kryder after hearing Jules’ gushing words on Radio 1. Ricochet is then due for release on Housetrained in the Spring of 2011. Word has even reached Brazil, where Kryder has already secured a record deal and podcast. For that more tribal, Brazilian beat, Kryder create what they callSub Tropical mixes - a more percussive latino style, with Dokta Kaotika handling the beats - and the track M.E. will perfectly capture that, out on Brazil’s Maquina Records at the end of January 2011. Kryder also maintains a more underground edge. It’s not just about signing big deals but keeping care of wonky business, down to releasing cheeky DJ-only bootlegs via their dark and sinister website –www.kryder.co.uk. Just don’t look directly into the screen. Don’t ask, just… well just DON’T.
Kryder are always open to any kind of depravity. Rumours already abound… take your pick: Dokta K has been involved in dwarf porn in Vegas; Kryder lost five stones working out to his own magical music, which has shape-shifting powers; Dokta K is a classically trained pianist; Dokta K has a classically trained penis… the rumour mill grinds on. It’s all about refracting the music through a combination of smoke and mirrors because Kryder has seen the future through the all-seeing powers of his visor and he has a vision of what clubland needs. And what it needs is a top hat and a dwarf and some decent music. What it needs is Kryder. “For me it’s about making good music,” he continues, “caning the airmiles, enjoying ourselves and not taking it too seriously. Well, the music is serious but the rest is utter chaos. I want to turn up to a gig and give them the best party they’ve ever had. I’m always jumping around that much I can hardly keep my top hat on.” Think this is all idle nonsense? Think you’re safe? Well think on this and try to get to sleep tonight: Kryder is a live show and it’s coming to a nightclub near you sometime in 2011. They will leave no stone unturned, leave no base uncovered: they’re big and they’re small; they’re right and… OK agreed they’re mostly wrong. However you shape it, Kryder is revving up for 2011. Last word to Kryder: “Booking Kryder is like inviting a human cannonball into your disco. It’s a carnival of chaos.” You have been warned…
