A moment five years in the making, Kidswaste’s sophomore EP Colors Of Your Heart is out now via noted tastemaker imprint Counter Records. Bouncing between dreamy, cinematic shades of electronica, the introspective yet upbeat EP showcases his fluidity and ingenuity as a songwriter, and evolution from self-taught bedroom producer to treasured, internationally touring artist. The release precedes his highly-anticipated, month-long US headlining tour, kicking off on the West Coast in August.
“Kiddy is not Kidswaste. It is only the mask that I wear,” Quentin says. “I wanted to explore the destructive relationship of an artist with their art, from creation to its downfall…I’ve always been really critical of my own craft and try to only put out my absolute best, and I worked really hard to up my production game for this EP. I think this is a more mature presentation of what I am able to do as an artist and songwriter.” – Kidswaste
At its core, Colors Of Your Heart is a story of metamorphosis and creative growth, whisking listeners into an electrifying, uncharted era for the 25-year-old producer—fondly coined the “Kiddy” era. The energetic EP is an honest exploration of Kidswaste’s artistic journey, translating the highs and lows of the creative process into 8 tracks of dazzling, uplifting dance music.
Kidswaste will hit the road on August 8th at Barboza in Seattle, Washington for the first stop of his upcoming national headlining tour. Making stops in San Francisco, Denver, Chicago, Brooklyn, Atlanta and more, the Colors of Your Heart tour will wrap up in Houston, Texas on September 3rd at The Cambridge Room.
