Thundering forward we arrive at our 81st show and what lies ahead is loud and direct as we present a live showcase from a London duo. Kidchameleon, a producer learning fast and delivering some killer cuts is joined by a long time friend and part time studio partner Casual Breakin’. Together they’ll be laying down a live session broadcast from the Darkfloor HQ in south London dishing out their 140 jungle heavy bass.
Finding his way from a farm in Suffolk to London to Nottingham and back to London, KidChameleon‘s first release as a producer came on Hardcore Lives Records back in 2009. Everything Starts With Letters was his tribute to the old skool hardcore of yesteryear. Following it up with remixes for Definition:Breaks and Held II Ransom. Rather than develop a formula, the Kid likes to try something fresh with each new track, injecting where he can a slice of humour. I’ve been warned he’s not afraid of sheep noises.
He’s nurturing his style at On A Break after remixing Walking on Water by Enough Weapons. Already 2011 is shaping up to be a productive year, 3 EPs are lined up for release and his forays into jungle have caught the attention of the mighty Mulder.
the future is bright, the future is chameleon shaped
Casual Breakin’ (Jim to his Mum) started DJing (badly) way back when in ’92 alongside John Grief (the man responsible for Definition:Breaks) who was responsible for getting him into jungle.
He’s played many an illegal rave as well as regular appearance at established club nights Spectrum; Nottingham’s Detonate and Ambus. Casual has been a stalwart on the award winning NSB Radio since it’s very early days giving Chris Screwface some of his early airtime, debuting breakbeat classics such as Flesh Eater.
When not gigging he can be found spending his days in the Peckham Zoo Studio with KidChameleon.
