Self-proclaimed “kawaiistep” artist Keyboard Kid started producing in 2011 and released music under a different name until changing it in early 2014. The French producer has since released two great singles, “Spread the Colors” and “The Awakening Of Legends.”
What is your driving force behind producing EDM music?
I’m not only producing EDM. I’m working on different styles, like Trap, Chill, Funk etc… I’m inspiring myself with all types of electronic music to create something original, that’s not usual. What’s inspiring me to make music is the fact that I’m free, that I do not have any limits nor rules. For me, it’s the best way I have to express who I really am.
What does your family think about your producing?
My family is very supportive and they’ve always been there to share their opinion. It’s a bit because of them that I am where I am now.
If you would wake up as a donut, would you consider eating yourself?
I would become a cannibal.
What do you like in EDM?
I like the melodies, the chords. That’s what awakens imagination and creativity. Beyond the words, music has the advantage of being emotionally direct.
What do you like about producing?
The link that it creates between the music and the artist. It’s always exciting to have a new track to work on. It’s kind of the same relationship that a kid might have with his new toy.
Do you have any producers you look up to?
Favright and Mord Fustang. I’ve always followed their work and they inspire me a lot.
Would you be interested in doing a livemix?
Definitely. I’ve already received livemix offers, and I really plan on doing one soon.
Which style of video would you use for your music?
It would be similar to Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s “PONPONPON” clip. It would be happy and full of colors and dancing and joy.
Any producers you would want to collaborate with in the future?
One more time– Favright. He’s an ingenious and innovative artist whom I would have the most fun with.
What would be your answer to the claim that EDM is not music?
“Stop the music and go home.”
