Kai Whiston Interview
This exclusive Music Mondays article takes you behind the eyes of Kai Whiston and their undeniable energy that reaches far beyond music. Take a dive into this underground creative's mindset as well as their story that got them where they are today.
Kai has quite literally traveled from nomadic upbringings to the brink of breaking his unique take on music into the mainstream, and he took the long way to get there. Despite Britain's entrenched class structure, he’s managed to gracefully rise above by telling and sharing his unique story and sound. I’ve been following his story for some time now, and from what I understand, he grew up in Bristol, where he and Iglooghost became Facebook friends through a mutual connection between Iglooghost and his younger brother. They bonded over a shared love for experimental music, and around the time they went to university, the two began making music together.
Seeing Kai as not only a great giver and artist, but also as a social architect, is crucial to understanding his creative vision. He has lived a life of struggle and found his way out. By building with an intentional creative vision, he has positioned himself to be one of the most well prepared artists and can elevate his career to the next level. His label, Lux Recordings, just signed a distribution deal with UMG records, and he has yet to release anything with label backing. I am sure he has plans to expand his reach and platform, and he is bringing talented artists with him. I am sure he is one of the most promising creative architects and I would not be surprised to see him change the direction of music beyond his small pocket of the underground.
