INTERVIEW: Rude Kid talks future collabs & his take on the Grime scene

August 22, 2017 | D&L

UK DJ and producer, Rude Kid, has released his Monsters EP!

Known as one of the biggest producers in Grime after working with an impressive roster of artists, he also has his own weekly show on Kiss, where he plays the best in the genre.

We caught up with Rude Kid to talk music, collaborations, festival season and more…

L’ART: The Monsters EP is out now. How does it feel?

Rude Kid: Feels good. I love releasing music. The best feeling is when people come up to you and tell you what songs they like, but yeah Monsters EP is sick.

L’ART: For those yet to hear the new project, what can listeners expect?

Rude Kid: Expect to hear sick Grime music. Monsters EP is called Monsters because every single tune on there are monsters!

L’ART: You’re referred to as one of Grime’s elite producers. What are your thoughts on the Grime music scene at present?

Rude Kid: The Grime scene is so healthy right now. I think next year it will grow even more and people will achieve some amazing things.

L’ART: You’ve worked with the likes of Wiley and Skepta to date. Who have you got your eye on to work with in future?

Rude Kid: I’m open to working with anyone to be honest, as long as they’re sick! I need to do a tune with Stormzy, Tinie, Dizzee, Craig David, just to name a few, but yeah, I’m open to work with anyone as long the vibes are there.

L’ART: With Stormzy doing so well and Dizzee Rascal soon to release his new project, who are your top three Grime artists of the moment?

Rude Kid: At the moment…. Ghetts, Skepta, Stormzy.

L’ART: Your festival performance schedule is looking great this year. What do you enjoy most about your appearances?

Rude Kid: I just love the crowd reactions when I drop tunes. Also when people come up to you and tell you how much they enjoyed themselves, I love that. As a DJ all I care about is playing the right music for the crowd to enjoy themselves.
