Kai Whiston is one of those artists whose presence can be felt across the pop landscape. Having produced tracks for the likes of Shygirl, VTSS, Coucou Chloe, Tommy Cash and Dorian Electra, the 23-year-old has already scored a distribution deal with Universal for his label Lux Recordings, while his educational platform Lux Cache boasts alumni such as Oneohtrix Point Never and Jimmy Edgar.
His third studio album, Quiet As Kept F.O.G., is an intimate reflection of his experiences growing up as part of the New Age Traveller community. Across 10 tracks, Whiston takes listeners on a beautifully atmospheric journey of self-discovery as he reconciles himself with the childhood he spent his teenage years resenting, combining elements of 90s rave with fantastical soundscapes and orchestral interludes. Part documentary, part myth, Whiston bares all – and it’s worth every moment.
