Huntington Beach, CA (PressExposure) September 18, 2013 -- The music artist from the United Kingdom known as Kenny Hectyc has released his long-awaited debut record, the "Inside Outer Space" EP. The EP includes six original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 26 minutes. These tracks include Kenny Hectyc mainstays "Let Loose," featuring the talents of Liquid Architek, "Fly Tonight," featuring the combined force of the Scribes, and Hectyc's slam-dunk closing track, "Back 2 Bassics." The EP also includes three "Let Loose" remixes, the "Mainline Mussy Remix," the "Embassy Remix," and an instrumental remix, all of which also feature the inimitable Liquid Architek.
Hectyc cites as main artistic influences the music of old-school legends such as Donae'O, Mobb Deep, (the original) Artful Dodger, and DJ Shadow. His music is indicative of his fine taste in house music and British hip-hop, but also blends other flavors that are less typically found in the subgenre.
Speaking candidly about the style of his debut record, Hectyc writes, "My EP is rooted in house, which also reflects a combination of my musical influences from UK funky and deep house to hip hop. The tracks range from instrumental, deep, moody, heavy bass lines to summery, uplifting, UK funky house, and round off with a track featuring a rap from The Scribes."
The themes of the EP's anchor single are also important to Hectyc's mood and tone.
"The first song and lead single, 'Let Loose,'" he writes, "features Liquid Architek and is about realizing that life is not just about work - it's also about having fun and letting go and being uplifted."
Kenny Hectyc was originally born in Nigeria to parents from the UK and Africa. His family introduced him at an early age to classical, pop and Makossa music. He has been producing music since the age of 15 and is now a resident at the award-winning Thirst Club/Bar in Plymouth, UK. When he is not making music as a solo artist, he performs with the Scribes, an eclectic hip-hop group who have been signed by Dizzy Dustin's (Ugly Duckling) Record Label, Kamikazi Airlines.
The "Inside Outer Space" EP by Kenny Hectyc is available online worldwide.
