Kidd Madonny is no stranger to the entertainment industry. As the former half of RKM Future Boys, the Miami-based twosome known for their unique & visually stunning performance, Kidd has combined his performance art and DJing skills into a new circus themed show called "The Kidd Show". On November 17th, Kidd will partner with NightlifeGay.com for the Philadelphia premier of that show at Voyeur Nightclub.
Kidd has spent over a decade immersed in
almost every aspect of nightclub production: décor, costume design,
performance. His talent has taken him across the globe - from Tokyo to
Montreal to Acapulco - landed him in the world’s hottest nightclubs
& given him the opportunity to work alongside the most sought after
DJs in the industry. It also set the stage for what has become one of
his greatest passions.
Born with an immense love for
music, Kidd was naturally drawn to each DJ’s talent. Fascinated by
their modern day Pied Piper capabilities, he easily recalls the first
time a DJ floored him. "We were dancing (as RKM) at Arena & Junior
Vasquez was spinning. He had a song sitting on a loop for five
minutes." The crowd’s reaction mirrored his own, an enthusiastic
momentum that continued throughout the party. By the end of the night
the light bulb had turned on. "I was like, Wow! This is what you can
do with mixing!"
Describing his musical style as a blend of vocals, a little bit of
"disco house remixes", progressive house, electro & the
all-important tribal, says Kidd of his music on any given night: "You’re
always going to hear something new. I think as a DJ you should always
educate the crowd." That philosophy, coupled with what Kidd declares
the best piece of advice he ever got from a DJ - ("Guido told me, ‘Have
fun with it. Don’t be afraid to experiment.’") - is the foundation upon
which he builds each & every time he sets foot in a booth &
slides on his headphones. His favorite part of being a DJ is the
buildup: getting the crowd on the dance floor, getting them excited
& keeping them there dancing. He includes himself in that grouping
as the main person you should always see moving for the simple reason
that, "If you don’t see me dancing, why would you be?"
