Interview: Retro Kid

Indie artist Retro Kid joins us for an interview to talk about his sound and origins.

Hi, how are you?

Hi, Jake here. Just recovering from a couple of DJ sets in London from the more dance based side of the project.

So, how did you come up with the name Retro Kid?

The name Retro Kid comes from the idea that basically you are never too old to enjoy electronic music!

When did you decide to start working on music?

I have been working on various projects for about seven years now, but Retro Kid basically came out of a bar called ‘Jolene’ in Copenhagen’s meat packing district. This is where I met one of the singers Christian and it all kicked off from there.

Do you have anything exciting in the works?

At the moment I am working on music without the band. Taking it down a bit more of an electronic production route to get the name out. Will pick up with the band after summer, but now the dj stuff makes more sense. It is nice to have many options open.

Outside of music do you have any hobbies that you like to escape to?

I personally love to cook, I find it very meditative!

Describe your music in one word.
