Kideko and Clementine Douglas team up for ‘Playin’ via Make Em Move 


Returning to his label Make Em Move for the first time this year, contemporary powerhouse Kideko teams up with coveted vocalist Clementine Douglas for hypnotic club lullaby ‘Playin’. 

Since exploding on the scene in 2015 with smash hit ‘The Jam’ which now has over 38M Spotify streams, Kideko continues to catch the attention of the entire industry. The Brighton-based DJ has since been released on respected labels such as Toolroom, Solotoko, Ministry of Sound, and Gorgon City’s label REALM. As well as collaborating with heavyweights such as Armand Van Helden, Tinie Tempah, Sonny Fodera, Becky G, Friend Within, The Magician and more. 

Known for fresh house music packed with pure, unadulterated energy, Kideko regularly charms the airwaves. He’s accumulated backing from the likes of Pete Tong, Mistajam, Danny Howard, and Diplo on BBC Radio 1 whilst landing Annie Mac’s celebrated title of Hottest Record for George Kwali collaboration Crank It (Woah). 

His background in drumming has informed a hefty percussion style and rhythm mastery that is showcased on releases like Beatport no.1 The Music alongside Saffron Stone. Meanwhile, Kideko’s first single Cubanito for his Make Em Move imprint marked an incredible launch with over 1M streams.

Now uniting with in-demand vocalist and singer-songwriter Clementine Douglas, Kideko brings the heat with the enchanting anthem ‘Playin’. Defined by bumping, piano-driven rhythms, bewitching vocals, and rhythmic pulsations, ‘Playin’ is the perfect product of Kideko’s tireless club-focused expertise.    

Kideko & Clementine Douglas Playin’is out on 15th April via Make Em Move – we premiere it on Data Transmission, check it out here and grab it on Beatport.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
