I'm really getting into kim fai! From his mix of mad money to Paris is burning remix to pov and some other songs by him, I think his style is sick. It's kinda angello in the sense that it's dark and drummy and kinda unique as well. I think he's here to stay and has a bright future ahead of him in the scene.

What do you guys think ?

Fuck that's what I'm talking about, a great producer to discuss :D

I first took notice of him through Toolroom Records, his album is fantastic and I think Steve Angello is doing a very good job of also showcasing his talent on SIZE. I mean, Mad Money, POV and Isabel are three straight releases featuring him, and he was a guest at the Mafia's party at Mansion, and probably a guest in Ibiza this summer.

Some other tracks I rock from him are:

Giorgia B & Planeta Boracho - Tequila (Kim Fai Dub Mix)
Kim Fai - Excuses
Kim Fai - Embo
Kim Fai - Thing from Beijing
Kim Fai - Rybik
Kim Fai - Blizzard
Kim Fai - Empty inside

He gives techno a very minimal sound that's just awesome. With house coming closer to those genres, I find his music very appealing lately. I hope he keeps producing new stuff cos he's totally killing it :)

(Other techy artists and labels I usually check are Wally López and his FACTORIA/FACTOMANIA releases, Dubfire and his SCI+TEC releases, everything by COCOON which I think it's the best label out there, Steve Lawler and his VIVA releases...)
