The origins of Kevin Follet, multi-instrumentalist and experimental electronic artist, have their roots in the Verona (ITA) area. The seed was planted back in 1992 with the first experiences in the electronic music world but its path has been the most varied and complex:
DJ at first, then producer, drummer, keyboard player, sound designer and only recently also “builder” of electroacoustic instruments.
His music can be defined as “crepuscular”, the dark and obscure tones are predominant in his compositions, with connotations between the delicate, the abrasive and the infected.
A fundamental characteristic of KF is the reluctance to restrictions, to be able to freely explore the sound panoramas without any preconception or direction of any sort is fundamental for him. His compositional approach is in fact visceral, at times mystical and archaic, not influenced by aesthetic canons and predefined goals. The unknown has always had a strong influence on his music as well as all that is unusual and out of the ordinary.
The immense curiosity, the scientific imprinting and the transversality of his knowledge, allowed him to generate a wide range of sound experiences, below a list of the fundamental stages of the artistic path of KF:
In 1997 he released his first self-produced album titled “Harvest People”, following a long series of productions including EDM, IDM, breaks, ambient and pure experimentation. From 2003 he started a live Trip Hop project “Bristol Style” with his singer friend Iris FreeForm and under the supervision of DJ Afghan, titled “Dark Inc”.
In 2008 he decided to collaborate with his drummer friend ElectroJJ in the EDM live project “Toxic Music”.
Since 2010, together with DJ T, Marco Novalis, ElectroJJ, djzood and Davide Zambelli, he has conducted his own independent label called “Drummond Records”.
