"Rekid is the alter-ego of Matt Edwards aka Radio Slave, remixer to the stars and dance music's man of the moment whose work with DJ Hell, Kylie Minogue (where he famously mixed Kylie with New Order's 'Blue Monday'), Carl Craig, Talking Heads, Chicken Lips, Pet Shop Boys and even Kate Bush has made him currently one of the most in-demand remixers working today. Rekid is the pseudonym he uses for his more serious/underground work and Made in Menorca is his first album released under the Rekid moniker and released on Soul Jazz Records. With numerous recording projects (Rekid, Radio Slave, Quiet Village, Mathew E, Sea Devils) under his belt, Matt Edwards' music breaks down the traditional barriers of dance music -- house, broken beat, techno, electro, hip-hop, disco cut-ups -- and influences from Walter Gibbons to Andy Weatherall to DJ Harvey to create a truly unique sound. After two extremely well-received singles Rekid's hotly anticipated full-length debut Made in Menorca is already getting support from the likes of Lindstrom, DJ Hell, Tiga, Trevor Jackson and Carl Craig Made In Menorca is quite literally the most refreshing piece of electronic dance music we reckon you'll hear all year. Moving between stark cold European machine music, sophisticated electronic disco to the futuristic hip-hop of the late J-Dilla and the abstract house music of Theo Parrish Made In Menorca is a journey in 21st century electronica in Matt's slick accomplished style."
