Remember the movie Purple Rain how Prince’s character was simply referred to as “the kid?” That was so cool. Apollonia had no choice but to fall for him with his mysterious moodiness, dope jackets, and funky dance band, and so it will be with you when you listen to the equally mysterious and funky love-makin’ music from this producer known simply as k?d.
Who is the k?d? We’re not sure, but his single “Discover” featuring panty-dropping vocals from RKCB is all we need to know he’s cool. It’s got a space-traveling romance vibe to it, really grand like the feeling of good things to come. These synths are bigger than Jupiter and shinier than the Milky Way, and there’s just enough rough texture to keep things interesting.
