Biography

After falling into the river Tees during a stevedoring incident in 1998, Ste McGregor washed up on the fair shores of Brighton in early 1999.
With a ramshackle pile of vinyl and old calculator bits, he set about changing the music world forever. These formative years were creatively fruitful, nailing tonnes of animated promos for Midfield General (Midfielding), Lo Fidelity Allstars (Sleeping Faster) and a whole host of lousy tribute acts.

At the dawning of the new millennium, the now fledgling Kidda saw his musical attempts committed to wax. Under the guise of Gadji ( “‘cause that’s what you call a bloke from the north”), the mighty Puma Strut label released a 7”that was soon to be hoovered up by the baying, vinyl-obsessed-hip-hop-clowns of the world.
This initial foray into soul/funk/Latin/underpant breaks saw the young idiot cut his musical teeth. With an obvious devotion to hooks, drops and hard (fucking) party vibes, Gadji moved crab-like on a sideways tip away from the limitations of hip hop (Stunts, Blunts and far too many fronts). Flying from the Gadji nest and feeling the summer sun on his new found wings, he emerged as Kidda (“’cause that’s what his brother calls him”)
The first to look up and catch a glimpse of his magic was Catskills Records, who, on hearing a demo of 5 new tracks, ‘loved all of ‘em’; and so it was to be that 2004 and 2005 saw birth of the Shoe Cash and Word Booty E.P’s. Both received worldwide love from the likes of Radio 1 (The Blueroom/ Zane Lowe) and Norman Jay (Carnival, N.Y.C., the Big Chill…everywhere).
