KIDDY SMILE (Defected - Paris)
Kiddy Smile was raised in a housing project in Rambouillet (Yvelines) to the southwest of Paris. His teenage years were rather rowdy, but he soon acquired a taste for dancing. He appeared in a few music videos, especially George Michael’s An Easier Affair, and moved from Rambouillet to Paris. He took dancing lessons and discovered Sylvester and Grace Jones – who, he says, shaped his personality.
Before beginning his musical career, Kiddy Smile was a fashion stylist (a love passed on to him by his mother). Among his influences, he cites African-American genres such as gospel and hip-hop, 90s Chicago and Detroit music, the voguing movement and the New York house ballroom scene.
In 2016, he dropped two tracks, Teardrops In The Box and Let A B!tch Know, on house label Anglais Defected.
Kiddy Smile will be releasing his first album, One Trick Pony, on August 31, 2018. It explores more intimate, personal subjects such as unrequited love, paternal desertion and acceptance of one’s body.
The artist also plays in the new movie directed by Gaspard Noé, Climax, which won critical acclaim at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2018, when it featured as part of the Quinzaine des Réalisateurs (Directors’ Fortnight). The first single from the album, Dickmatized, is on the original soundtrack of the movie.
