Kidz With Toyz certainly made themselves known in 2003. Hailing from Cardiff, South Wales, a current hotbed of twisted humorous hip-hop,
the collective's first concoction of cool beats and twisted vocals 'Cokeboy', got instant recognition from Radio Stations.
With DJ's such as Mary Anne Hobbs, Eddy Temple Morris and Colin Murray getting into the Kidz, the foursome of Knowledge, Rich, Lindsey and
Jaffa quickly got down to working up more tracks that poked fun at the world around them.
Mary Anne Hobbs - 'we absolutely love it!'
Thought up by production partners Richard Adlam and Lindsey Martin, with the help of respected scratch dj, DJ Jaffa, the Kidz followed up
'Cokeboy' with the distasteful 'Brush Strokes' and electro party 'K-dubtastic'. Knowledge added the humour injection with his wry
observations on the state of our world, along with comedy writers Mark Williams and Ben Potter.
Justin Rushmore (Finger Lickin) - 'its Pitmen meets the Streets, Eminem meets stranger in an alley high on amyl - its brilliant!
Made me laugh many times over...just a lil thank you (good production too!)
It was their bootleg of the White Stripes 'Seven Nation Army' and their own 'U Can't See Me' that really created a stir. Winning a BBC Radio
1 vote as the most requested tune, the track ripped up indie club floors with its tough beats and filth-ridden guitars.
Recently the Kidz have completed a collaboration with the Goldie Lookin Chain, in which the two crews battle it out to the backdrop of Pop Will
eat Itself and Boomers Chicken in Newport. The track is already kicking it off in the indie clubs.
The amazing fact is that none of these tracks have actually ever had a release. All copies were either passed by hand or copied.
Currently working up new tracks, the Kidz will look to release their as yet entitled first mini album as well as continuing to feed DJ's more
of the weird and the wonderful!
Colin Murray - 'Definitely interesting!'
Eddy Temple Morris - 'a total winner of an original track - this will raise some laughs! Absolutely brilliant!'
Mary Anne Hobbs - 'great to have such hilarious and inventive tunes to splash about in the show this year!'
