Things are looking rather good for Scottish DJ and producer Kerr Slaven, aka KC Lights. The artist has been building up his reputation over the last few years after a big break in 2015 following huge support from Annie Mac, while also delivering collaborations alongside the likes of Mike Mago. With a new single released on Danny Howard’s Nothing Else Matters Records, KC Lights looks like he has a right good ole Summer ahead, with supporting duties for MK on a number of gigs. Keep an eye out for the name, it’s our little tip for the future. Check out what KC Lights had to say below.

Getting started, how did you find yourself involved within the scene and was it always something that you wanted to do?

I’ve always known I wanted to have a career in music, no matter what it was I was doing, but it wasn’t until I graduated with a music degree in 2012 that I decided it was music production I was going to pursue. After teaching myself all of the technicalities I found that it came very naturally to me and so I haven’t slowed down since.

Some stand out moments to date for KC Lights have been the likes of Annie Mac including your track ‘No No No’ on her AMP 2015 compilation and also receiving a lot of support from various other DJs and producers. To get your track on that compilation, how did that encourage you to continue to make music?

Getting support like that, which is on such a global level, is an incredible feeling and I think more than anything else is a bit of a relief, I have a lot of faith in myself with regards to achieving what I want to achieve but there are naturally always going to be doubts so I guess it kind of cements that faith in a little more.

As mentioned, the likes of Danny Howard, Annie Mac, Rudimental and many more have been supporting your tracks. What’s this like for you to know that people are enjoying your music?

I think I’d be writing music whether people were enjoying it or not but to see and hear other people share your excitement for a track you have written is really special.

On the topic of Danny Howard, you have recently released your track ‘Temptation’ on his Nothing Else Matters Records label. How did the track come about and get signed to the label?

Yeah I’m really excited to be working with Danny and the team on this one. I never write a track with a particular label in mind, I just get into the studio and work on whatever is in my head at the time and then think about where it would be most at home after. With ‘Temptation’ it was an easy decision, Nothing Else Matters is doing big things at the moment and it felt like it would fit well with them. So I was obviously delighted when Danny got back and said he loved it and wanted to sign it!

Will there be more tracks along the lines of ‘Temptation’ soon from KC Lights?

I have loads of new music waiting to come out! The follow up is nearly finished and given how well ‘Temptation’ has been received I’m even more excited about the next one!

With the Summer basically started and a number of festivals taking place, do you have anything planned for the Summer months or will it be hard graft in the studio?

A bit of both! I’ll locked away in the studio working on lots of new music but I’m really excited to be joining MK and Patrick Topping for the Area 10 BBQ on 6th of August in Portrush NI. I’m also playing with MK on July 1st in Aberdeen. I’ll be updating my socials with any more forthcoming gigs so keep an eye on them!

Rounding off the interview, what is the aim for KC Lights over the next few years? Is there anything you really want to achieve or make happen?

I just want to keep pushing KC Lights as far as I can! I have lots going on at the moment I can’t wait for but yeah maybe an album at some point and I’m already putting together some initial ideas for a live show at some stage down the line.

And finally, who would be the artists you would most like to collaborate with on a track in the studio?

There are loads of artists I’m loving at the moment so it’s a tough one. I’d love to get into the studio with MNEK and write some songs, he’s such a natural songwriter and an amazing singer and producer. Also I’m a big fan of MK so it’d be really cool to work with him on some new stuff as well.
