Kyle Watson


Born and raised in Johannesburg, and musically trained from a young age in classical piano and music theory, Kyle Watson's foundation has helped him clearly step ahead of the rest in this ‘Garage Band generation’ in which anyone has the opportunity to be a musician. Not afraid to step out of his comfort zone, his appreciation for each and every genre of music has given Kyle his unique and eclectic sound – a sound that one would be hard pressed to find anywhere else – and it is because of this that he has secured himself a spot as one of South Africa’s most successful internationally acclaimed dance music producers.With big support coming from all directions, locally and internationally, Kyle’s music has skyrocketed to a whole new level. Some of the best and most successful producers in the world – top charters like Pleasurekraft, Chris Lake, Eats Everything, Dale Howard, and Audiojack – have shown support.But the buck doesn’t stop there. Producing is one talent, playing to a venue full of clubbers is another. With constant evolution (and a recent move to a live digital setup) it’s no wonder that he has played most of the major clubs across South Africa, holding a guest residency at Truth, one of the longest running and most reputable clubs in the country. In 2009, Kyle took his music to the UK and guested at venues such as Ministry of Sound in London, Mission in Leeds, and many more across the country in cities such as Birmingham, Bristol and Halifax.His sets are smooth and well balanced, and have evolved into a style of forward thinking house music that stems from the smoother side of house, to more energetic garage influenced grooves. For a musician that has clearly taken a brave step forward, there is still much ahead for this young star.
