For our second edition of SORTED we are fully stoked out to feature the unique talents of Kid Hops! A tireless champion of forward thinking sounds with deep roots in sound system culture, Kid Hops is a certified Cascadian institution whose taste making influence is truly global.

About Kid Hops:
KID HOPS has been mixing records and curating music for over fifteen years, performing alongside Damian Marley, Horace Andy, Massive Attack, Goldie, Roni Size, DJ Hype, LTJ Bukem, London Elektricity and countless other reggae legends and cutting edge electronic music icons. His rough & rugged selection style is rooted in the booming Kingston soundsystem tradition, but Kid Hops’ expressive programming and seamless mixing keeps him in the present. His kinetic deejay sets and engaging radio shows have earned him worldwide recognition, and stirred Seattle’s weekly newspaper The Stranger to call him “reliable as a Swiss watch.” Representing cutting edge sounds from the streets of London and Kingston, to the clubs
of Paris and Berlin, catch Kid Hops twice weekly on award-winning radio station KEXP 90.3fm Seattle. His Saturday morning reggae radio program “Positive Vibrations” airs 9am-12noon PST, while his weekly exploration of electronic beats, “Expansions”, takes over the airwaves Sunday nights 9pm-12midnight PST. Kid Hops is also a resident at Seattle’s best monthly dance party – TRUST – alongside Seattle heavyweights SunTzu Sound, every 3rd Saturday at Chop Suey.

Kid Hops has played all kinds of crazy sounds alongside…
Massive Attack, Tricky, Air, Ame, Devotchka, Buraka Som Sistema, El Guincho, Ozomatli, Guns ‘n’ Bombs, Rusko, Kode 9 (Hyperdub), L-Wiz, Hatcha (Kiss FM LDN), KJ Sawka, and tons more!
