Discovery Project Releases: Kyle Walker “HD” [Free Download]Kyle Walker
Kyle Walker’s “Claude VonDeeper” wowed the Discovery Project team this past June, earning him a coveted spot at EDC Las Vegas 2016, where he dropped his diverse blend of all things house. As the sun disappeared Saturday night, Walker’s beats banged out from upside-downHOUSE, finishing off a monumental weekend for the L.A. resident. Like many of our Discovery Project winners, Walker has made several attempts for the big stage. Prior to this year, he had entered the Discovery Project competition a total of nine times, proving that oftentimes talent must be coupled with persistence to make it anywhere in the music industry.
His star has continued to rise in recent months, picking up support from the likes of Dr. Fresch and Borgeous, the latter giving Walker the nod on his bootleg remix of the Borgeous and tyDi tune “Wanna Lose You.” Walker also helped close out the weekend at Nocturnal Wonderland last month, bookending one of the biggest summers in the young artist’s burgeoning career.
His latest release, “HD,” featured in the ongoing Discovery Project Releases series, could be seen as a follow-up to the aforementioned tune, which started it all at the beginning of the summer. On “HD,” Walker lets the sub do the talking with a booty-shakin’ 808 bassline. Taking the ghetto, booty-house vibe one deeper, he’s laced the tune with dirty vocals and some really spectacular sound design.
We chatted with Walker about persistence in the music biz, his other artistic endeavors, and Celebrity Deathmatch.
Besides music, you have some dope ceramic work on your Instagram. How did you get into that, and is it something you still do?
It was a class offered by my high school, so I took it thinking I would just relax during it, but I really grew to like it! I’ve taken a little break from it for now but definitely plan on going back to it later in life.
You’ve entered the Discovery Project nine times and finally got a win this year. What was it like attending an Insomniac event as an artist this time around?
It was incredible; I was treated with open arms, even as an opener at EDC. Something I’ll never forget is being there before everyone else and seeing how empty the Speedway was; within an hour, it was completely packed!
You are public about your love for both Arianna Grande and Porter Robinson. If they were both put in a Celebrity Deathmatch, who would win, and what would be their finishing move?
[Laughs] Wow, never thought I’d have to answer something like this. It’s a tough choice, but Porter would probably come away with it. He’d probably finish her off with the feels.
“HD” has a distinct booty bass feel, reminiscent of the Dirtybird sound. What inspired this tune?
I’ve really grown to love this type of house music, and listening to all the Dirtybird releases this year really inspired me to put this track together.
You have a consistent output of music. What can we count on for the rest of 2016?
I plan to definitely keep up the consistent flow of releases and gigs. I have a ton of original music, new remixes, and a few collabs with really talented producers I’m excited to share with fans. This year has been great thus far, and I’m excited to finish it out strongly.Discovery Project Releases Discovery Project Discovery Music Kyle Walker House Free Download Interview Show more
