Hailing from Australia's beats & bass capital Perth, Maaike Lebbing aka Kito has had a momentous rise to fame. Her innovative and diverse take on bass music was championed by dubstep man Skream and he was quick to release her debut self titled EP on his Disfigured Dubz imprint in 2009. After a move to the UK, a second EP on the aforementioned label followed, which drew on the sultry sounds of fellow Australian vocalist and friend, Reija Lee. Now with a rapidly growing and equally intrigued audience at her feet, Kito's next assault was on Diplo's Mad Decent Records, notorious for purveying forward-looking and explorative artists. 2011 saw two stunning releases, with Kito once again teaming up with Reija Lee. Now with a firm stamp on the nu-bass scene and a clearly defined identity, she's set to release more music this year and we were recently treated to a highly anticipated project with Feadz on Busy P's Ed Banger Records. Check it out!



Don't blink or Kito will pass you by! Her jam packed schedule means a 'quick-fire' interview is in order, so here we have 10 questions for the gal ahead of her set at Saturday's Shogun Audio rave at Cable. She talks about bacon & eggs, blowing up Batman and Napoleon Dynamite.

1. When I grew up I always wanted to be...
A drummer in a rock band and a ballet dancer. 

2. You wouldn't expect it, but sometimes I listen to...
"Kim Kardashian - Jam (Turn It Up)". There's a great line in the song where she says "i'm going to work like I'm paying my bills - biiiiii-iiiiills!".

3. My signature dance move is...
The 'Bad Drunk Voguer' and 'Butterfly' a la Napolean Dynamite. Also been dabbling in a bit of 'French Street Mime Artist' as of late.  

4. My favorite YouTube video at the moment is...
See below, thank me later.



5. My next release is...
A single with Reija Lee on Mad Decent which will be dropping late May with a music video. It will be the first release under our new name which we'll be announcing in a couple of weeks! 

6. After I finish my set you will find me...
Hugging people

7. My perfect hangover breakfast is...
Bacon and egg sandwich and a milky tea.

8. If I get a weekend off I like to...
Jog in the park, drink coffee with friends, go to markets, do pilates, plant vegetables in my veggie patch and pretend to be a normal, civilised human being.  

9. I love...
Zebra Katz



10. I fear...
Nothing
