futuretense: Kai Whiston

Part of futuretense

There’s something painterly about 20-year-old producer Kai Whiston’s hyper-surrealist beat music, with each sound contorted and manipulated.

After exploring the ideas of adolescent fury on Fissure Price EP, Whiston’s rupturing abrasion refuses to take its foot off the pedal on debut album Kai Whiston B*tch.

Across 40 minutes, his maximalist approach draws influences from Arca, Hudson Mohawke, Death Grips, Timbaland and even occasionally nu-metal.

Whiston returns after a plethora of co-signs from the likes of Iglooghost, Noisia, Skrillex, Danny Brown, Kanye West, Anthony Fantano, Mary Anne Hobbs, Mike Shinoda from Linkin Park and many more.
