EPITAPH SIGNS SHY KIDx NEW ALBUM 5/14

Epitaph Records is proud to announce the signing of Shy Kidx, the Italian electronic dance music sensation who's first EP Orion is set to hit streets on May 14th, 2013. Recently featured in Alternative Press' 2013 100 Band's You Need To Know issue, Shy Kidx is a talented artist on the cutting edge of electronica and he is about to take his unique brand of EDM sound Stateside as one of the most compelling artists of the year.

To get an early look at Shy Kidx and his music go to BeatPort here:

Cutting his teeth as a teenager playing in punk bands, Shy Kidx has since crafted a unique sound influenced by a slew electronica pioneers such as the Bloody Beetroots and Skrillex. With the Orion EP, Shy Kidx delivers a unique brand of EDM that not only draws fans to the dance floor from around the world, but from all realms of music by redefining what is considered "punk."

"To me the attitude in electronica and punk rock are the same even if there are no lyrics in the music because they both come from the underground," he explains. "There's a definite relationship between those two worlds because neither one is doing what we're traditionally supposed to be doing with music—and that's what drew me to both genres in the first place."

From the carefully controlled chaos of title track "Orion" to the shimmering pop gem "Majestic 12," this EP shows the incredible sonic range that Shy Kidx has been able to achieve. Songs like "Final Warning" do the speaking for him via hypnotic synthesizers, syncopated drums and Earth-shaking grooves that are a far cry from the typical drum and bass soundtrack you’ll hear at dance clubs.

"I bring my laptop with me on the road even when I'm not touring so all of these songs were written in different parts of the world which I think gives them their own character, explains Shy Kidx, a fact that he will put to the test when he realizes another dream this summer by bringing his upbeat dance party to the Vans Warped Tour.

Shy Kidx continues, "The most amazing part about electronic music to me is that it's so international and it just seems to keep growing; it's like there's a community all over the world and we're all working toward the same goal."
