There are few artists who have as much passion and dedication to the industry as Kevin Knapp. He’s a constant pioneer of the sounds crowds yearn for through his own individual production style and his proclivity for vocal contributions. Having touched down upon some of the greatest labels in his field, he now brings his unique creations to Solardo’s Sola Records with Drug Birds EP.

Drug Birds EP is a gem in Kevin’s musical crown – a delicious blend of forward-thinking beats and old-school influence; the roots of his genre clearly peeking through. Employing some help from Baby Luck, Kevin takes fans on an energetic, percussion-fuelled ride with title track Drug Birds. On the flip, Step Up pairs a commanding beat with a driving bassline, oozing the flawless appeal that brings fans back to Knapp’s music time and time again.

Having played at WMC, DEMF, Sonar, Paradise, Get Lost, Elrow – Barcelona and Sankeys in locations like Beirut, London, Mumbai, Seoul and Malta, it’s clear that Kevin Knapp’s sound is an infectious front-runner in the house music industry. It’s high time we welcomed the established producer to the Sola family – and Drug Birds EP more than fits the brief when it comes to Sola’s output of original, infectious, head-bopping tech house music.

Drug Birds EP is out now via Sola.
