Kaye is arguably one of Singapore’s most versatile and ever evolving musicians. Over the decades, he has morphed across the performance spectrum from bands to DJing to live sets with computers involving anything, and blending everything from his trusty saxophone, to the EWI, vocoder, midi controllers, drum machines, analog synths and more. His love for music technology is responsible for his ever evolving setup, and all this is deeply entrenched in a wide range of musical genres. From deep and acid laden house and techno, to funk and hip hop wrapped in electro boogie vibes, all seasoned in the roots of jazz and soul.
This diversity has led him to being called in as a sessionist for live club acts such as DJ Vadim & the Russian Percussion (with Mr Thing and Yarah Bravo) and Reel People Sessions, and his lightning quick improvisational reflexes have enabled him to jam alongside many other producers and DJs who were open enough to let him, during their sets without any prior rehearsals – KiNK, Basic Soul Unit, Linkwood, Motor City Drum Ensemble, San Soda, Kerri Chandler, Kyoto Jazz Massive, Russ Dewbury and Dam Funk are but a small selection of worthy mentions.
Also one half of Cosa Nostra (with the other half being Funk Bast*rd), their productions have gotten the thumbs up from respected DJs and/or producers such as Phil Asher, Fulgeance, Dam Funk and Lefto, as well as favourable reviews in revered dance music magazines like Mixmag. With releases on their own Darker Than Wax label, only more good things can be expected.
Dedicated to playing and producing the highest quality electronic music with over two decades of experience, DJ/producer and label owner Eddie Niguel first cut his teeth in the clubs and festivals of his native Singapore playing alongside the likes of Adam Beyer, Clive Henry, Dave Angel, Nicolas Matar and Steve Lawler, never failing to work the crowd with his excellent mixing ability and unique style.
In the studio, Niguel’s releases on labels such as HEY! Records, Midnight Shift, Dig Deeper, Get Physical and his own Integrity imprint has left an indelible mark on the electronic music spheres. Releases such as the recent “Back2Basics”, underground ear worm hit “Absolute”, the Journey’s “City 2 City” and the anthemic “The Warehouse” crossed over multiple dance floors, festivals and DJ mixes worldwide including the Essential BBC Radio 1 shows.
Played and supported by a variety of forward thinking DJs such as Laurent Garnier & Dixon, festival favourites KiNK & Sasha to techno stalwarts Chris Liebing & Len Faki, the producer has displayed a diverse sound that amalgamates a wide range of influences from the finest deep house to peak time mainroom cuts and beyond.
Today, Niguel continues to be a regular performer for various parties at home headlining alongside DJs such as Answer Code Request, Deetron, KiNK, Recondite, Redshape, Rodhad and Mike Huckaby. 2017 looks set to be an exciting year ahead for him as more projects unfolds and he looks forward to continue making his mark globally.
