We met up with Kiks of July Child earlier in the month, poolside on the rooftop of the Ace Hotel in Downtown LA to be exact. Within minutes of meeting the multi-faceted songwriter / producer, we sensed a genuine humbleness and compassion.. two traits that are rare in this industry.
You would have no idea he was affiliated with SONY music. You would have no idea he was best friends with industry notable Wes James, aka Le Youth. Accomplishments and affiliations that would normally lead a conversation, were maturely not flaunted. We asked him what it was like working with his other half, Amber Clara. He simply said, “she’s one of the most talented individuals I’ve worked with in this industry”, adding…”and it doesn’t help that she’s super hot!”.
Six months ago the duo released a tropical r&b cover of J.Cole’s “Power Trip“, which has amassed over 600k plays to date. Their soulful, melodic and catchy productions have won the attention of Paper Thin Records Ltd and Armada Music.. to name a few. Aside from evident talent, it helps significantly when you have a sense of humility. That is why we believe July Child will do big things in this industry.
Just yesterday they gave us their newest production, a stunning house remix of Next’s 90s hit “Too Close”. Preserving that classic 90s dance sound, while adding their own modern aesthetic, this one has up and moving while reminiscing about our younger years.
