Kidd Mike Makes a Dizzying Dirtybird Debut with 'Boom Beat Heart Box'

We love finding a fresh new banger. We especially love discovering a fresh new artist behind that banger. This week’s Track Of The Week, “Boom Beat Heart Box,” is a head-spinning tech house cut from up-and-coming producer, Kidd Mike. The UK-based producer first emerged onto the scene in 2009 under the alias, Stealth Labs, but retired in 2013 to focus on fatherhood. Seven years later, the South African artist began pouring himself back into his passion during the Covid-19 lockdown, and the Kidd Mike project was formed.

While the project is still in its growth stages, Mike undoubtedly demonstrates the power of quality over quantity. “Boom Beat Heart Box” is not only a Dirtybird debut, it’s served as a secret weapon of label head, Claude VonStroke’s, Your Dad Plays Great Music Tour. Press play and it’s easy to see why.

This track is deep. This track is weird. This track is filthy. And we absolutely love it. The thumping kicks set a buoyant tone to match the tight claps and razor-sharp kit. The distorted vocal entrances listeners, otherworldly fills spiraling in the background, while the rolling bass line and unwavering beat serve as our only tethers to this reality. You may feel inspired to dance. You may feel inspired to chant. We encourage you to do both.
