KIAT

Kiat

Long time stalwart of Singapore’s underground electronic music scene, Kiat has been championing the darker side of electronica for over 17 years. From the decks to the studio, it has always been about quality breaks, heavy basslines & leftfield influences. With tunes sought after by the top shelf DJs in the scene such as Goldie, Doc Scott, and Marky just to name a few, Kiat has been featured as the “Leader of the Nu-Skool” in international drum & bass magazines, KNOWLEDGE and ATM.

In 2009, Kiat took it a level higher by launching a digital music label, Qilin, together with stablemate, The Vortex. Not confining to drum & bass, Qilin is a platform constantly on the lookout for more experimental sounds from all facets of electronica. He also co-founded Syndicate, the most forward thinking music+visual super-collective in Singapore, set to deconstruct and reassemble sound concepts & visual ideas with live performances and installations sets in various spaces & contexts.  With Qilin & Syndicate rolling out nicely for the sugar addict, Kiat is currently finding inspiration from blending his primary love for experimental hip hop together with other progressive electronic sounds from the world over.
