New kid on the block Unicorn Kid blasts onto the dance pop scene with his rather spectacular chiptune infused pop. After the recent release of the three-track, non-more-aptly-titled 'TIDAL RAVE EP', a debut album has been scheduled for release in 2012. Unicorn Kid is a musician who has helped to define a generation with his music. But determined to avoid any of the cliches that making dance music implies, Unicorn Kid's aim is to infuse his gamewave, chiptune bleeps and blips with a classic music writing style to make big pop tunes. The end result is massive stadium anthems with rousing choruses that are both uncategorisable and also make for an exciting new sound.
Still just a teenager and already with remixes for Gorillaz and Pet Shop Boys under his belt, Unicorn Kid can also name Scissor Sisters' Jake Shears and BBC-1's Zane Lowe as fans. His debut album will feature some interesting vocal collaborations for the first time including Nick Littlemore (Empire of the Sun / Pnau), Kele Okereke (Bloc Party), Nicholas Petricca (Walk The Moon) and Polarsets amongst others.
Recently his tracks 'Dream Catcher' and 'Wild Life' have set imaginations alight with massive praise coming from the likes of Rob da Bank who declared the track as his "best track currently on air" whilst Zane Lowe raved that he was "completely and utterly blown away" the first time he was played the track! He was also invited to play Radio 1's Festive Festival live at Maida Vale in early 2012 alongside other hotly tipped acts for 2012 including Emeli Sande and Dot Rotten.
Unicorn Kid will also heading out on tour in April alongside Major Lazer and Toddla T.
"it's basically music you'd fight ninjas to in Second Life, assuming
there are ninjas in Second Life. Or Timbaland if he took coding classes
with Zomby. Whatever it is, it exists, it's here, it's great, and it
will make you want to put Hackers at the top of your Netflix cue."

"Relying on the sounds of vintage computer games mixed with contemporary
production stylings, the electro prodigy puts out an eccentric sound
that is part dub step, part pop and and part dance music. Listen to
'Dream Catcher,' his latest brew that is pretty darn genius."
