KMT’s always been part of the FBBB family, he’s been involved with members of the team since before we even began(!), DJ’d live slope-side at our events, run the music workshops we had at MK and been a constant source of inspiration and amusement! There is only one KMT, time to find out why…
How and when did you first get into music?
From my childhood, my Mum and family always played music at home and had a huge collection as diverse as Fela to The Police.
When did you start to DJ?
I was making mixtapes from the age of 8 and got my own record player when was about 13. Made a conscious decision to play DJ much later as I was dancing, when I wanted to hear a lot more political Hip-Hop from the UK.
Who were you major influences?
My mum, we used to hold lots of blues (late night parties) and they were very male dominated. The male Djs would always try to play or trying to outshine my Mum but I observed very quickly that she would always move the crowd much better than her male counterparts.
How would you describe your style?
Afro-Pop – AfroBeat to Pop and anything in between.
What are you working on/looking forward to?
Being the No.1 DJ on the Afro Beat scene, breaking more artist’s, playing abroad a lot more. Making the music and social movements seamless
Where can we find out more about you/hear you play?
ICA, Passing Clouds
You can also add your email to my weekly mailout which is firstname.lastname@example.org
Many thanks to KMT for these words and we hope to see him DJing for us slope side very soon!
