An easy-listening trip-hopster similar in style and intent to his countrymen Air and Dimitri from Paris, Kid Loco has an even stronger kinship with the long tradition of French pop characterized by Serge Gainsbourg.
Otherwise known as Jean-Yves Prieur, he began playing the guitar at the age of 13 and played in several French punk groups during the early '80s. He moved on to production as well by the end of the decade, and moved on to reggae and hip-hop with a band named Mega Reefer Scratch. By 1996, Prieur had built his own studio, christened himself Kid Loco and released the Blues Project EP for Yellow Productions, another kiler Late Night selection with exclusive cover version of Black Sabbaths mighty "Paranoid"

The "Another Late Night" moniker goes out with a flourish, as Kid Loco delivers a sparkling mix. Like all the great DJ's, Loco takes a bundle of songs which shouldn't go together in any shape or form and delivers a seamless mix. So many gems here: The Herbaliser's "The Hard Stuff", John Lydon's rant at "Religion" as part of P.I.L. Aim's "Fall Break" with that violin sample Tranquillity Bass's "Soldiers Sweetheart" over the top of Harvey Madel's "Wade In Water" and the piece de resistance - Flevans "Spooked" followed by Kid Loco's own ridiculously funky cover of "Paralysed" by Gang of Four. An essential purchase
