New Music Friday: Kidswaste & Manila Killa

Making his North American  touring debut, Kidswaste teams up with Manila Killa and vocalist Chelsea Cutler for “Tonight,” out now via Counter Records.

Arguably one of the industry’s most forward-thinking imprints, Counter Records has a proven knack for finding and cultivating dynamic, superstar caliber musical talent. Names like ODESZA, RAC, and Giraffage come to mind. French producer Kidswaste fits that mold perfectly, having successfully built a brand and sound so original that it supersedes the territorial restrictions that may hinder a lesser creative force. Having worked with both Manila Killa and Chelsea Cutler on separate occasions in the past, Quentin and the aforementioned artists display a natural stylistic chemistry throughout their newest single. The release of “Tonight” and launch of Kidswaste’s debut U.S. tour are bonafide indicators of how far he has come and his overwhelming promise coming to fruition.

Through both his solo work and his work with production group Slow Hours, French producer Kidswaste (Quentin Beauvois) has spent countless hours uncovering and discovering his sound, which can be described as a dance between indie, folk, electronic and pop. His first official EP, Spleen, released in February of this year, garnered support from VICE/Creator’s Project, Billboard, This Song is Sick, Dancing Astronaut, Nest HQ, Earmilk and more. Fans have proven their support with over 14 million streams on Spotify, 10 million streams on YouTube and 10 million streams on Soundcloud.
