Fresh Kils is a Juno nominated producer, mix-engineer, and MPC wizard from Toronto. From behind the boards to the stage, there's not a spot of ground Fresh Kils' prolific career hasn't touched. With momentum & accolades growing each year, Fresh Kils' is poised for a sound system takeover unlike any we've seen in a long time. You've been warned... Despite the wild performances that he has become known for on the MPC, "Disclaimer" represents the naturally of his production work, resulting in a more sombre, emotive sound, which creates a discordance between the Fresh Kils that people became accustomed to seeing performing on stage, and the artist in the studio. "Artists would see me on stage, rocking these incendiary MPC routines and ask for beats to collab, assuming they'd get that same sound, only to be confused when a folder of downtempo soundtracks would appear in their emails." "Contrary to the larger than life, confident persona I portray on stage, I'm crippled with self doubt in my day to day, possessed of an imposter syndrome which leads to me to under-represent myself, to self-critique my work before it's even been heard. I'd play a song I was working on and describe in detail all the things that were wrong with it, while it was playing: "mix isn't finished", "still not happy with this part", "still needs work", instead of allowing my work to speak for itself. I would "disclaim" away my own value. Making this album has been a process of working through that, of re-claiming my value to myself. I've made the album I wanted to make, and as hard as it is to say, I've made peace with letting it go of it without saying a word." It's my first solo offering, and as such it is a more true representation of who I am as an artist. This album comes with no disclaimer attached, no marketing department, no agenda, no strings. It's simply, the music I've made that I loved the most."
