An internationally-celebrated artist, Quentin Beauvois, best known as Kidswaste, cut his musical teeth during his formative years as a bedroom producer in the elegant region of Northern France. With his graceful dexterity, Kidswaste broke into the indie-dance space with his debut single “Underwater” – a memorable genesis track that garnered over 2 million streams on Spotify alone quickly followed by other breakout fan-favorite cuts like “Free,” “Tonight,” and “Time,” taken from his 2017 EP Spleen. Following his recent singles “Fall In” featuring Lizzy Land and “Time is Mine” featuring Olivia Reid, Kidswaste’s discography (including his Beauvois side moniker) now boasts well over 200 million streams as he simultaneously draws the curtain back on his forthcoming 2022 EP, Colors of Your Heart, and prepares for a headlining tour across North America.
Since his debut, Kidswaste has meticulously accelerated his artistic evolution without skipping a beat. Lauded by tastemakers by the likes of Billboard, Apple Music 1, Magnetic, Dancing Astronaut, Atwood, Chill Nation, and more, Kidswaste is a proven trendsetter in both the electronic and alternative landscapes. His cozy, signature sound spins in frequent rotation across exclusive Spotify playlists like creamy (750k) and metropolis (792k) alongside Apple Music playlists like Today’s Chill, New In Electronic, Electronic Pop, Today at Apple, and more. His enchanting, nuanced sound in the studio translates seamlessly on stage as he’s swept away crowds opening for household names like ODESZA, Chet Porter, and Chelsea Cutler, just to name a few.
A vanguard of his own creative growth, a new era of Kidswaste blossoms on the horizon as he celebrates his core musical identity by expanding its poise with new songwriting styles and techniques. Armed with intentional sound design and meaningful songwriting, the Kidswaste project is an open-ended letter devoted in equal parts to individual introspection and fellow-feeling.
