Producer/Founder, KIDinaKORNER


After partnering with Interscope Geffen A&M in mid-2011 to launch his own label, KIDinaKORNER, producer Alex Da Kid (B.o.B’s “Airplanes,” Eminem’s “Love the Way You Lie”) has found notable success with acts like Imagine Dragons and Skylar Grey. In 2012, the label’s biggest hit came in the form of Imagine Dragons’ debut album, Night Visions, which has since sold more than 1.2 million copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan. “When I sign artists, I really put my whole entire life on hold and focus 100% of myself into giving them the best shot of having a career,” says Da Kid, 31. “So going from creating a small EP with Imagine Dragons to watching them sell out headlining tours all around the world in less than a year is truly an indescribable feeling.” He recently produced and released Grey’s debut album, Don’t Look Down, and added Brooklyn band X Ambassadors, U.K. artist Jamie N Commons and singer/songwriter Candice Pillay to his roster. “Jamie is another situation where I just finished and put out a small EP,” he says. “A few months later, we have some of the biggest icons in music and the film industry who want to help and embrace him. There is no better feeling than believing in an artist early and watching as the nonbelievers slowly change their minds.”
