It's no secret that before Loco Dice became one of the world's most revered techno selectors he was brought up on a strict diet of hip-hop.
Clearly, his appreciation of hip-hop and now grime has never gone away as he's announced a new side project, FKD, inspired by both genres.
The collaborative group has been created by Loco Dice with his longtime friends Frizzo and Kobe Hodgson, who all share a strong appreciation of hip-hop and its many forms.
Dice has been teasing his FKD project via his Instagram page, giving his fans a glimpse of who he has been in the studio with in London, including grime artists YGG and Jacques Fugee.
The debut EP from FKD will be released today (15th December).
Hi everybody! Today I want to share with you FKD, my first musical side project. FKD was created with @itsFrizzo and @KobeHodgsonofc, my long time friends and collaborators from my early hip hop days. If you follow me and if you’re familiar with my music, you know that my roots are in hip hop. FKD is a journey from hip hop to electronic music. Stay tuned and connected with @FKDofc for more news and sounds that will follow tomorrow and in the next days. Peace, D
