~~ The K.i.D. (King In Distress)
The K.i.D. (King In Distress); otherwise known as The K.i.D., or The King; is an upcoming Pop-R&B artist based in the USA. Born as Titus Prince Jasper, on October 29th, 2000 in Charlotte, NC; but due to family ties and the nature of his childhood, he claims Jersey City, NJ & Queens, NY as home. The K.i.D., grew up most of his life heavily influenced by ’90’s and ’00’s Pop & RNB artists like, Aaliyah, TLC, Prince, Michael Jackson, *NSYNC, Jagged Edge, Ginuwine, etc. His main influences creatively for music are Tory Lanez, Chris Brown, Kehlani, and The Weeknd respectively. “I’m quietly carving out my path in the industry”, The K.i.D. says.
This is definitely true, for the very underground approach The K.i.D. has had to go in order to get noticed. On December 20th, 2019; he released his first ever song on all major platforms (Apple, Spotify, etc), and amassed over 50,000 streams. Small buzz arose online, and The K.i.D. kept releasing more underground hits. Such as Dragon, and the long taken down song; #SKARYHOURS. It wasn’t until The K.i.D. relocated to Minnesota and dropped Morningstar EP on June 25th, 2020 that we actually got to see what The K.i.D. can do! DIP was a major record & success and still is, bringing in well over 12k views on youtube, 50,000 streams on Apple Music, and over 300,000 streams (AND counting) on Spotify alone! A beautiful sounding record, with awesome tenor vocals, great production, and a wonderful sample of “You” by Lloyd helped put DIP in a mainstream lane all of its own! The K.i.D. in his words wants his own Chixtape story to be told. “These sampled-based songs are just the tip of the iceberg”, he says. In other words, The K.i.D. wants to take over the industry on his own terms. Filtering and blurring the lines of R&B, Pop, and Hip Hop through an ambitious widescreen lens.
Cubilas The MPC Whisperer
If you are a fan of Hip-Hop production then you know the letters MPC. the MPC has been a staple in hip hop production since the 80s and have gone through many models. the current crop of MPCs (MPC X, MPC Key 61, MPC Live/Live II, MPC One) are the most technologically advanced models with what amounts to mini computers inside. they van be expanded with SSD drives and sd cards, and have built in vsts and expansions. the cool thing is these can also be loaded with custom expansions and right now the leader of the custom expansion game is a small company called Cubilas. coming on the scene a few years ago, Cubilas provides custom sounds from other instruments and samplers converted especially for the new generation MPCs. from Korg to Yamaha, Cubilas curates the sounds and gets them right.
Cubilas says is a passion and labor of love to come out with these expansions (there are new releases constantly) and being a producer himself, its always challenging to push the envelope.
