About Kidd G

Born and raised in the small Georgia town of Hamilton, Kidd G first gained widespread recognition through TikTok and SoundCloud. Kidd G posted some songs that he recorded online with his friend Nolie Beats, and in 2020 Rebel Music signed him. Though his preliminary single “Sorry” had a modern hip-hop flare, he soon after began adding in his Southern roots to his songwriting. Continuing his music on SoundCloud, his fans became loyal and fond of his southernly appeal.

Kidd G’s first viral hit came from his song “Dirt Road,” with its video amassing over 5 million views on YouTube in a little over one month. Hank Williams Jr. serves as one of Kidd G’s leading inspirations, as he states, “I love country because it feels so natural to me, and you can really tell stories in the songs.” Now emersed in his music career, he accumulates around 1.5M monthly Spotify listeners. His music has been played across KIX Country Radio in Australia, as well as country playlists involving Amazon Music’s ‘Country Heat’ (rose to No. 2) and Spotify’s ‘Hot Country’ (rose to No. 3).

Now embarking on his introduction solo tour and his partnership with Big Machine Label GroupsThe Valory Music Co., Kidd G heads in the year of 2022 with the sky as the limit.

Following a string of buzzing singles in 2019, he forged an ironclad creative partnership with Bino Rideaux on their first critically acclaimed Sixtape.

“It is a song that I really enjoyed with Emilia, beyond that is something that has happened to all of us, it connected us right away and we gave it our all when we sang it,” says Mati. “I am a dreamer who seeks to identify with many people in the world. I love different things and with this song we want to propose something very fresh and vibrant, something that will change moods! A song that I dedicate to couples who are having unnecessary bad times, this is the song that will remind you that the good often prevails and that it is worth trying and trying even more so when you know that this person is your weakness.”

The project comes after the release of “Verte,” which has over 452 thousand views on YouTube. He also dropped “Mi Viejo” in June which has reached over 522 million views.

The Chilean singer was signed by Juan Diego Medina “El Ciego” for the label La Industria Inc in 2019.

aldn × midwxst – Go Away

Reston, VA artist aldn has been consistently rolling out incredible visuals from his debut EP, predictable (released November 17). The music video for “Go Away” is released. The collaborative track with fellow hyperpop artist midwxst is sullen and captures the emotions and feelings around a deceptive love and relationships that drag on beyond its expiry date. Directed by John Peterson, the video is shot in the streets of New York and features the real-life best friends in reverse. Watch the video above or via link HERE

midwxst and I shot the video the same day as the Overcast N Friends show, had a fun time running and gunning different shots basically planning the video out as we went. So happy with how it turned out,” said aldn.

Fans will be able to catch “Go Away” live as aldn joins Glaive’s upcoming national tour that will kick off in February alongside midwxst. 

About aldn

Twenty-year-old aldn has been prolific in the hyperpop community for his production skills, but it wasn’t until he started laying his own vocals to the self-produced beats that it took off for the Reston, VA artist. aldn’s music turns pop songwriting on its head and finds a way to get stuck with the listener for hours on end. With its glitchy production and saccharine like melodies, aldn’s dark world is inverted through his music. While growing up in the urban jungle of Reston, he was exposed to the work of The Smiths, Radiohead, Skrillex, and deadmau5 through his brother and father. At the age of 11, he taught himself how to use an Ableton launchpad and imitate lo-fi beats. From there, he began making lo-fi and rap beats and releasing them on Soundcloud while quarantining with friends at Virginia Commonwealth University. As the whole world transitioned to a virtual existence, he turned to Discord for a sense of community which is where his breakout hit “glittr” gained massive traction—the remastered version now racks up over three million plays on Spotify. In 2021, he dropped the greenhouse EP which saw collaborations with glaive (“what was the last thing u said”), midwxst (“happy ever after”) and renforshort (“dog eat dog”). Finding inspiration in filmmaker Gaspar Noé to shapeshifting artists like Crystal Castles, Yung Lean, and Bladee, aldn’s upcoming debut EP switches gears in favor of being even more experimental in a lane of his own.

Speaking of the single, Jax said System.Inc and I bonded over a shared love of X Presidents ‘Diamond Rings,’ and earlier in the month we made this track in the studio. I played it to Steff, and she loved it. We went into the studio the next day to write the song and cut the vocal. The way she delivered both the hard rap and the singing elements were amazing.
