Adored by listeners from all corners of the internet and festival goers alike for his euphoric, energised sound, Kilter is the moniker for 24 year old Sydney rising star Ned East.
Having amassed 33 million streams online, multiple visits to the Top of Hype Machine charts and triumphed in the triple j Like A Version studio, Kilter’s just getting started. It’s a pretty good indication of a young artist’s trajectory when they’re being selected by the heavy hitters of the game like ODESZA, Mø, Duke Dumont and London Grammar to remix their big singles on the back of just a handful of originals. Having quickly developed a reputation as a gun producer in the studio, Kilter’s thrown us a juicy plot twist and keenly stepped up his game as an accomplished live performer too.
Flanked by electronic drums and synth-gear galore, Kilter’s live set delivers on the promise of an actual, well, live performance with limbs flying fast between keys, sample pads and drumstick duties. Kilter’s track record of collaborations inspires promise for what’s ahead; there’s the signed and certified banger ‘Fool For You’ with Sydney singer Micah Jey, dusty hip hop-inspired beats with GRMM (‘Look At Me’), ‘Gravel Pit’ with Matt Miller that got an almighty Flume remix, and the euphoric bounce of his team up with Porsches on ‘Want 2’.
