Squid The Kid
If you’re a fan of Anderson Paak, Mac Miller or Tyler the Creator, look no further than the 24 years old hip-hop and R&B phenom Squid The Kid, who is quickly solidifying his name as one of South East Melbourne’s hottest artists in the game. Hailing from the South East’s infamous suburb Hampton Park, the humble musician rips through funky beats with slick flows – reeling listeners in with a unique sound that keeps heads bobbing and melodies flowing.
Taking the leap of faith and dropping out of his studies, Squid decided to hit the ground running and pursue his dream of being a musician, with his debut single ‘Wintertime’ seeing an abundance of local praise. Squid thrives off his surroundings, so co-founding the humorous collective Kozy Kids was always going to be a fun idea – reminiscent of the early days of Odd Future.
With Squid never been hesitant to experiment with a new sound, there’s a little something for everyone within his growing discography. Having been a finalist for the ‘Vans Musicians Wanted’ competition – Squid was judged by the likes of Denzel Curry and Sean Miyashiro from 88rising.
Bringing in the new year with some heat, the summery vibe of Squids upcoming track ‘Getaway’ is bound to bring you a dance-vibe similar to superstar producer Kaytranada.
