Hailing from North London, Billy Da Kid kicked off his DJ career at the very young age of 11, with a set comprising mostly of R&B, Hip Hop & House. As a teen, he was also immersed into the Reggae and Dancehall culture and his passion for this sound would help secure him a reoccurring DJ slot on the highly acclaimed ‘Digital Soundboy’ stage at Notting Hill Carnival.
It wasn’t long before Billy was invited to supply mixes for BBC Radio 1Xtra, and he joined the Kiss FM UK line up in 2012 after delivering several great mixes for ‘Carnival Kiss.’ Following a brief but successful stint on Kiss Fresh, Billy was rewarded with a move to Kiss FM UK. Billy hosts a weekly show every Friday & Saturday night on Kiss FM UK, bringing together the biggest and freshest music with a credible underground edge. The shows are not play listed, therefore Billy has to carefully select every track for Kiss’s target 15-24 year old audience; no easy feat! This has heralded great rewards with his “Friday Night Kiss” show being the most listened to show in London between 7-10 pm (2018) according to RAJAR listening figures.
Billy Da Kid’s sound is known for being credible and energetic whether it be a live festival set, or a mix for his weekly radio show. Expect everything from classic Kisstory anthems, to upfront Bass, UK Garage & D&B
Billy’s debut release ‘You Get What You Give (Music In You)’ – released on New State Music – featuring the fire vocals of Natalie Gray, and first remixed by Joel Corry hit the ground running; racking up over 500k streams in a matter of months, and received support of KISS FM, Radio 1 Party Anthems, and Capital FM.
