Producing a range of Electronic, Dubstep flavoured epics in the last year, Liverpool’s Kev Willow has been finding his works on the setlist of many a respected DJ of late. With support coming from Heartbreak; Mistajam, Jake Gosling, DJ Play and the mighty Chase & Status, it’s safe to say Kev is a producer in ascension. Kev’s take on Chase & Status’s massive release “Time ft. Delilah” serves as proof of his talent and potential, beating over a thousand entries in an official remix competition, which saw the track included in
the single’s digital bundle. Currently working alongside Hadouken for their latest album offering, as well putting the finishing touches to his latest release, a moombahton stomper called “Hello, I’m Kev”, Willow (formerly The Prototype), is building quickly support and momentum as a pioneer of bass-driven music. With influences and stylistic tendencies ranging from Moombahcore, House and Future Garage, as well as Dubstep, Kev isn’t a producer to be pigeonholed.
The EP heralds Kev’s foray into the constantly evolving world of Moombahton, presenting a range of heavy, throbbing bass monsters, technical acid shifts and a dose of bleepy Dutch-influenced Moombahton alongside some more chilled, reflective works. As such, “Hello, I’m Kev” serves as a diverse, broadminded first step into a brave new genre.
