“Go Up To Get Down” is a collection of remixes taken from Kidda’s debut album “Going Up”. “Going Up” was released in 2008 and received warm praise from the press:
“insanely funky beats, shiny happy melodies and hooks that reel you in like a mackerel” DJ Magazine Album Of The Month *****
“a refreshingly accomplished debut, and most importantly it’s out there” DMC Update Album Of The Week *****
“Ste is the creator of beautiful hip-hop-based, soul-drenched tunes. He’s a DJ but he also animates and directs the videos that accompany his tracks” The Sun ****1/2
“feelgood, soul –drenched party album” Zoo ****
After the release of the album, Kidda’s DJ bookings took off and subsequently he has DJ’ed at festivals including Glastonbury, Loop & Beautiful Days and club nights such as Stealth, Fuzzbox, Chew The Fat, Razzmatazz, Angel Breaks and Impending Delight.
Most of the remixes were personally commissioned by Kidda himself and are reflective of his musical style when DJ-ing.
The remix that really took off was the for the track “Under The Sun” which was remixed by Herve. The combination of Herve’s production and Kidda’s hooks turned “Under The Sun “into one of the biggest dance tracks of 2008.
High profile champions of the track included Annie Mac who made it her “Track of The Year”, Fatboy Slim, Kissy Sellout, and Dave Spoon. “Under The Sun” was then licensed to compilations including Ministry of Sound – The Annual 2009, MOS – The Underground 2009 and Godskitchen 2009.
Other remixes that have received Radio 1 airplay and strong DJ support are “Feel To Good “(Jack Beats Remix),”Strong Together “(Heavy Feet Remix),”Smile” (Detboi Luvs Me Mix) and most recently “Doo Whot “(Jaymo & Andy George Moda Mix)
Kidda was invited to do a “minimix” on Annie Mac’s Radio 1 show in February 2009 which he managed to squeeze 61 tracks into 5 minutes!
Kidda finishes off 2009 by playing the Australian touring dance festival Stereosonic (http://www.stereosonic.com.au/) with Deadmau5, Crookers and the Bloody Beetroots amongst others. Work has started on the second album with co-conspirator Lee Baker and is slated for a release at the end of the summer 2010.
