Exclusive Premiere: KIZ – Fiction (Renaissance Records)

Renaissance Records announced an exciting start to the new decade with fast-rising DJ & Producer Kiz Pattison, who makes a dual-debut as he releases on the label for the first time under a new alter-ego, KIZ with the ‘Insane’ EP, out on 24 January.

“I’m delighted to join the Renaissance stable,” says Pattison, “When they approached me they asked if we could look at a larger picture, so we decided to call our releases KIZ with a view to expanding to an album project, meaning the ‘Insane’ EP is merely the beginning!”

And what a beginning it is. The two-track ‘Insane’ EP perfectly captures KIZ’s unique, twisted-techno sound; a hypnotic, melodic groove which blends Chemical Brothers anarchy with Cox-like energy to standout aplomb. Underpinned by meticulous production, the EP delivers peak-time sounds with the sort of rare cross-genre appeal that will see it played far and wide. From the festival fields of the southern hemisphere to the world’s best dancefloors, expect those sought-after videos of crowds going, well, insane to happily clog the usual social platforms. “Both tracks have been designed for clubbers and dancefloors,” explains KIZ, “That hair-tingling, hands-in-the-air-euphoria is always at the back of my mind when I’m in the studio.”

Look out for KIZ’s album which is expected to drop early summer on Renaissance Records.
