Escape Into The Park - Spotlight on Kutski and Alex KiddWith less than a week to go until Escape Into The Park, we caught up with hard style supremos Kutski and Alex Kidd on their Welsh exclusive B2B performance.

So how did the exclusive B2B show come about?
Alex Kidd: It started with our B2B mix for Mixmag coming out this Autumn, which showcases our concept 'The Kidd & Kutski Experience' that we are touring this summer at all the major festivals starting with EITP. We have a few tricks up our sleeves and are the first DJs in hard dance to use new equipment from Pioneer & Vestax. It will be very special and full of energy with lots of shenanigans on stage!

What makes Escape Into The Park such great event to play?
Kutski: For me, the one thing that stands out is how 'up for it' everyone is right from the start! Some festivals, people chill at the start and it takes a while to get going, but at Escape Into The Park, everyone gets there early and goes full pelt right from the start. The atmosphere is amazing!
Alex Kidd: EITP was one of the first British festivals I was booked for, so has a special place in my heart and the Welsh crowd is always one of the best around.

Which other artists at Escape Into The Park would you like to see if you get
the opportunity?

Alex Kidd: Darren Styles, Andy Whitby and Bionic's Brian M & McBunn, they know how to get a party going!

Who or what is it that influences your sound?
Kutski: I listen to all different genres of music, from abstract hip hop to hardcore, from turntablist DJ's to death metal bands. I just love music in general, and I think all these different sounds and textures influence me in what I do as 'hard dance' DJ. I guess that is what gives me my unique sound and style.
Alex Kidd: Carl Cox and Dave Clarke were my childhood heroes and I like/appreciate all genres of music so my influences come from them all. Old Skool, DnB, Trance, Techno and even Minimal - variety is spice of life.

Are there any other artists who you would like to collaborate with?
Kutski: Other than Alex Kidd, Jaguar Skills and I are looking at putting together a mix tape later in the year. It would also be amazing to work with DJ Spinbad or Yoda, as they are two of my idols.
Alex Kidd: I would like to collaborate with Scot Project, ASYS & Kamui, they are very talented German hard trance pioneers with their own sound.

Who are the next big acts in hard dance?
Kutski: Bioweapon / BRK3. They are my close friends from Australia who are smashing it at the moment with the hard style and tech dance sounds. They are only going upwards!
Alex Kidd: My protégé Kidd Kaos, Argy & In2ition are definitely ones to watch and are all Kiddfectious All stars and part of Inspired artists which I founded a couple of
years ago.
