La Kinky Beat

La Kinky Beat, is a Barcelona's band emerged in 2003 as a result of the union of multi-influenced musicians and it rapidly became a reference in the mestizo style. The group, consisting of the original foundation members (Chalart 58, Willy Fuego and Mata), has been, since the very beginning, an open field for other musicians, such Madjid Fahem, David Bourguignon, Rude MC Italiano, Manel Cabello or GZK, to develop musical ways and languages that have brought the band to a constant investigation and change.

La Kinky Beat's debut album "Made in Barna" (Kasba Music, 2004) incorporated sounds of rocksteady, reggae and punk, and it was praised by both, critics and audiences, bringing the band to a massive tour around Europe. It was during this hard-work period that the band released the remixes album RMX Made in Barna (Kasba Music, 2005).

In recording their following work, ironically called "One More Time" (Kasba Music, 2006), the band introduces drum and bass echoes and reinforces the electronic sections. This work was backed again by a tour around Europe, including festivals such Glastonbury, and the release of the compilation 04-06 (Grabaxiones Alicia, 2007) in Mexico, supporting the exhausting "One More No Sponsors Tour" around South America (Brazil, Mexico, Colombia...)

Continuing their electronic research, the band drops their third album "Karate Beat" (Kasba Music, 2008) where break beat and jungle rhythms meet their original reggae and punk rock style. The album received the UFI (Union of Spanish independent labels) 2008 Award for Best Urban Record of the year. For the first time, the "Karate Tour" brings the band to Eastern Europe, collecting the best reviews with their powerful show.

This 2011 the band releases their fourth studio album "Massive Underground" (Kasba's New Beats, 2011) undergoing a new reinvention that puts together their personal achieved languages, such drum and bass and reggae, with the dubbing kick by Chalart 58, and will introduce, aside of the general tour, a new reduced band format to perform some selected underground dub sessions.
