Real Name : Jamie Lexton
Combining his love for science fiction, old-school hip-hop and the lush side of Detroit techno and jazz fusion, Jamie Lexton's productions as Kid Loops skirt the edge where raw breakbeat chemistry becomes bland coffee-table fare (a place once inhabited by several fusion legends as well). A native of North London, Lexton listened to Public Enemy, Stetsasonic and Mantronix as a child, and began working in the studio with help from his brother Charlie, who co-owns the Filter label and records as Cool Breeze. His studio prowess and wide-eyed youth gained him the name Kid Loops, and he recorded his first single "Alien Resident" for Filter in 1995. Lexton again worked with his brother on Kid Loops Vs. Cool Breeze, an LP released as Special Projects in late 1996. Singles followed for All Good Vinyl and Filter once again, before Lexton's proper debut album, Time Quake, was released in mid-1997.
