Coastal Kid is a 18 year old beatmaker from the sunny-beached coasts of Wollongong, Australia. He got his first taste for producing at age 12 from the free version of any program he could get his hands on... and probably still does. Taking a no-holds-barred, 'anything is possible' attitude to music creation, Coastal Kid takes inspiration from a wide variety of sources and scenes such as Hip-Hop, Chillstep, Electronic and the 'never-gets-old' hardcore Dubstep, distilling into melodic bass and keys with a heavy style of his own.
After having realised the lack of dance-heavy EDM presence in Australian music, Coastal Kid has set out with energy and determination to make a name for himself in this empty space and expand the scene of Australian music.
Perhaps it’s the combination of drive and ambition, perhaps it’s the early realisation that he has a gift and the potential to really make something out of this. Ether way, Coastal Kid is definitely one young artist to keep an eye on.
