Interview with Kris Kemist

Kris KemistNiceUp talks to Kris Kemist, founder of Reality Shock Records, UK.

What is your own musical background?

I grew up in a musical family still and started playing guitar from young. I caught the reggae bug as a teenager and started collecting records and selecting on a local sound. Eventually started producing when I was about 17. I later went to college and studied music production.

Can you tell us a bit about how you started Reality Shock – what gave you the inspiration to launch the label and when and how did you launch it?

It came about naturally really.  I was making riddims and started working with local artists and friends like Deadly Hunta, Mikey Murka, Prince Livijah and Aqua Livi.  Later Afrikan Simba and Errol Bellot came on board.
