We caught up with Shift K3Y at The Nest in London. Shift K3Y is a producer, singer, songwriter and DJ. This multi-talented guy’s career blew up in 2014 after the release of his track ‘Touch’, which reached number 3 on the UK Singles Chart. The same year saw him release another successful track, ‘I Know’.
After receiving significant support from BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra among many others, Shift K3Y has seen a meteoric rise to fame. Last year, he released two standout tracks ‘Gone Missing’ and ‘Name and Number’ that saw him blend bassy house influences with a bouncy UK Garage sound. His most recent track, released just a few weeks ago, is called ‘The Underground’ and is definitely worth checking out.
The last few years have also been littered with outstanding remixes of artists that have been given the Shift-K3Y treatment; from the likes of AlunaGeorge, MNEK, Tove Lo, and most recently Tommy Trash.
It was a privilege to interview Shift K3Y on his home turf; we spoke about inspirations, tour life, future releases and more. Check it out below!
