A welcome female addition to the usual boys club of Electronic producers, Bristol based musician, producer and visual artist Kayla Painter has spent the last few years carving a solid reputation herself around Bristol and the South West with her distinctive, layered soundscapes and compositions.
Heavily influenced by Bristol’s legendary bass heritage, Kayla’s sound has often said to been compared to that of Burial, Nicholas Jaar, Mount Kimbie and Four Tet, while her hypnotising and unique live AV shows combine her pulsing basslines and delicate sample and textures over her own bespoke visuals.
After self-releasing her eponymous debut EP in 2012 to a warm reception, and having played some renowned festivals, – Pulse Festival, Simple Things, Supernormal, Dot to Dot etc.. She has also played support slots for HK119, Barbara Morgenstern, Nite Jewel, Blondes, and the legendary Afrika Bambaataa. Kayla spent 2013 working towards a release which was seen by a London based Label, Bit Phalanx in October 2013.
Kayla has recently expanded her live set to include visual artist Jason Baker, (who also produced her latest video), Jason crafts live visuals in sync to Kayla’s set, drawing on the popular orb and baron landscapes seen in her artwork.
