With over two decades of experience and an impressive collection of his signature soul-infused releases on some of the most formidable labels across the drum & bass spectrum including imprints such as Shogun, Chase & Status’ MTA and Skankandbass, since signing to Hospital Records back in 2018 Mitekiss has become a staple figure in the scene crafting out his very own unique sonic identity.
From the tender age of 15, the London-native has been sculpting his sound through the exotic experimentation of other diverse genres that eventually lead him to a steady heartbeat of 174BPM. Mitekiss began to pick up momentum when ‘Void’, a free track on Skankandbass caught the attention of Shogun Audio head honcho, Friction. Among dropping his own sonic gems Mitekiss also runs his own label Goldfat Records with Mr Porter, which continues to grow year on year whilst nurturing some of the most promising future talents in the world of drum & bass.
In 2018, he dropped his debut album ‘Crate Six Seven’ which further proved his musical versatility as he explored the sounds of ambient, jungle, liquid-jazz and soul across 14 stunning tracks. 2020 saw the release of his incredibly curated ‘Objects To Push’ EP home to the widely popular single ‘Matter (feat. Ruth Royall)’. Moving into the following year Mitekiss stepped it up a notch with the success of his anthemic ‘City Angels (feat. Milo Merah & d.e.o.n)’ which garnered support from the likes of Shy FX, LSB and DJ Ron. Most recently, he began the lead up to his second studio album with the acclaimed singles ‘Seventeen (feat. Pixie Cola)’ alongside deep stepper ‘Grief In Puddles’ on the B-side, not forgetting the René LaVice favourite ‘Mortala’ (feat. Emiko & Duskee)’.
With his next big project ‘Bolivian Hotel Bistro’ on the horizon for early 2022, don’t take your eyes off Mitekiss as he continues to trailblaze his way to the top of the liquid drum & bass sphere. His multi-faceted approach to drum & bass as an artist, label-owner, mentor and all-round tastemaker prove his commitment and love for the sound.
