KDA released Die A Little Bit VS. Tinashe and featuring Ms Banks & Karnage Kills.
Like all modern romances, Die A Little Bit started in the DMs. Having previously worked together on his Just Say smash, KDA messaged Tinashe to let her know how much he loved the track and she immediately sent him the stems. He then enlisted Ms. Banks and the unstoppable Grime talent [Vice], Karnage Kills – who refers to himself as The Grime Barbie – to add some bars.
Within hours of KDA leaking his version of Die A Little Bit to Annie Mac, she was hammering it on her Radio 1 show. Cue a massive and overwhelmingly positive reaction, and a flurry of demand for the track to be released. It fell to the legendary Pete Tong to seal the deal, and Die A Little Bit was confirmed to be released via his ThreeSixZero label in the US and powerhouse British label Black Butter in the UK.
Die A Little Bit is the lead single from KDA’s forthcoming KDA Live Club Show EP and sets the tone for what is to follow. With an emphasis on energy and diversity, it fuses the worlds of RnB, Grime and the Black gay underground, highlighting KDA’s daring, lawless approach to music making and passion for bringing daring and different elements into the same space, purely to see what can happen.
A broad, scintillating collection, a mini-manifesto, KDA’s forthcoming KDA Live Club Show EP, is centered around his coming of age in London’s Soho. Steeped in his own personal history, it brings out the colour he remembers from iconic LGBTQ+ nightspots there.
I came to realise that I spoke about Soho in the past tense, says KDA. London has changed; it was all bright lights, neon signs, there was a danger to it. And when you walk around in Soho now, that’s not there anymore. I want to talk about those stories, with some of the friends and musicians that I’ve met over the past 10 years.
Kris di Angelis, (KDA), has led one of British music’s most remarkable careers. A shy South London kid who found his identity amid the debauchery of the city’s network of underground gay clubs, he’s renowned for his 10-year-long DJing stint alongside Jodie Harsh at Soho’s wildest clubs and spending two decades at the top, notching up more triumphs than virtually any of his peers. He’s been named official DJ for London Fashion Week three years running, scored a number one single with Turn The Music Louder (Rumble), (crafted alongside Katy B and Tinie Tempah), and, more recently, released a torrent of projects during lockdown. This includes his Honey Dijon refix, his sought-after Moi Renee Miss Honey VIP edit, his universally beloved The Human Stone ft. Angie Stone, and his stellar take on the hit Rudimental x Annie-Marie and Tion Wayne link up Come Over. KDA has earned his place in the spotlight, and he’s done it while staying true to the passions and beliefs that first fired his clubbing imagination.
