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 such events as Southampton’s Pulse Festival, Bristol’s iconic party ship, Thekla, and recent support slots with Finnish Electro-pop artist & Björk-Protégé HK119 in London and the legendary Afrika Bambaataa in Bristol, Kayla has now joined the ranks of London based Electronic Music label Bit-Phalanx.
