The Best of 2012: Kid Color

Here to close out our Best of 2012 guest series is none other that Chicago playboy Kid Color. Coming off of a great year of having played both Lollapalooza and North Coast Music Festival, Kyle has switched gears to focus on production; both remixes and originals. His newest piece “Pacemaker” was received extremely well, with positive feedback from the likes of Gavin Russom (The Crystal Ark, LCD Soundsystem), Juan Maclean, Jacques Renault, Tim Zawada among others, and will more than likely be in my Best of 2013 chart; yes, I already started a list.

Check out Kyle’s top tracks, remixes, edits and albums after the jump and if you missed our previous guest spots from Jake Guidry, Nick Redthreat and Gro, you can recap all of those here.
