Kyle Julian Hall’s dance-floor filling vibes are infectious. When experienced live his schizophonic sets bounce speakers.
Raised on a heady diet of roots, reggae, house and gospel, Detroit producer Kyle Hall spent a lot of his childhood knee-high in krumping crowds at his uncle’s club. Regularly accompanying his Ma to choir for gospel practice, a sense of rhythm and melody was instilled deep in Kyle from infancy. Releasing accomplished, ground-breaking mixes and playing extended sets at sell-out venues before he was even old enough to be served at American bars, Hall has been mentored by integral techno heads Mike Huckaby and Omar S and is a firm favourite with trailblazing imprint Hyperdub. Headlining i-D NOW’s Boiler Room Session last year, ahead of his return to London to play the Glass Table showcase tonight, Kyle recorded a 20 minute house cassette mix just for us, drop what your doing, listen to this.

What are you excited about right now? I’m excited about producing music and collaborating with friends. And about Helena Hauff, Jay Daniel, Manuel Gonzales, Scott Grooves and GB. How important is style to you? It’s not, unless it’s a baby bib or Wild Oats t-shirt (you can buy them here!). What tracks do you carry around with you to every set? Harmnear/Konnekt, Manuel Gonzales, NSNT PRJCT and The Provider, GB. What gets you through an extended set? Quality tunes. What’s getting you through to next weekend? Music, good food, and good vibes!
