Y’all missed our artist spotlight? We did too! Today we are switching it up by featuring up coming DJ and future superstar Kevin Nitcheu (aka Heavy K) about his story.
Bytown Blog: What inspired you to become an artist?
Heavy K: As I first got into the rave scene I was always fascinated by the music being played. Then I thought it would be fun to learn how to DJ and share that passion with others. I’ve also been playing the piano since I was 4 years old so music has always been big in my life.
BTB: How has your work evolved over time?
At first, when covid happened I was mostly DJing in my bedroom. I would mostly play Dubstep. As I gained more confidence in myself I started DJing at different parties that my friends were organizing for a year and a half.
I started mixing for Ottawa Shufflers back in 2021 where I found my love for Bass House. I’ve started playing actual shows this year at different venues and have been booked for more shows this summer.
BTB: What are your future goals and aspirations?
My future goals are to grow as a DJ, being more present in the rave community and connecting with other artists. One day I want to release my own music.
Bonus BTB Question: What is your favorite song/album?
When it comes to bass house, there’s this song called “Over” by Cooky that I’ve been listening to everyday for months! He’s probably my favorite bass house producer at the moment.
