Adored by listeners from all corners of the internet and festival goers alike for his euphoric, energised sound, Kilter is the moniker for 25-year-old Sydney rising star Ned East. Having amassed over 35 million streams online, multiple visits to the top of Hype Machine charts and triumphed in the triple j Like A Version studio, Kilter is gearing up to reveal the first taste of his debut album.
While keeping mum on just who we can expect to show up on the LP, Kilter’s track record of collaborations inspires promise for what’s ahead; there’s the certified banger ‘Fool For You’ with Sydney singer Micah Jey, dusty hip hop-inspired beats with GRMM (‘Look At Me’), the euphoric bounce of his team up with Porsches on ‘Want 2’, plus his latest single ‘Count On Me’ featuring Melbourne singer-songwriter LANKS.
Having quickly developed a reputation as a gun producer in the studio, Kilter’s thrown us a juicy plot twist and keenly stepped up his game as an accomplished live performer too. Flanked by electronic drums and synth-gear galore, Kilter’s live set delivers on the promise of an actual, well, live performance with limbs flying fast between keys, sample pads and drumstick duties.
