Sunglasses Kid is a British pop and synthwave music producer, freelance composer, performer and DJ based in London, England. 

 

His music takes you out of the daily grind and into a world of pure nostalgia with a mix of vocal-driven upbeat pop and romantic electronic instrumentals, influenced by the music, movies, and fashion of the late 80s and early 90s.

His debut album Graduation was released in 2017 and features artists including Miranda Carey, Rhyme Time, I Am Harlequin, Myrone, Phaserland and more.

Sunglasses Kid has worked with Richard X (Sugar Babes, Liberty X) producing the hit track Beyond Memory for synthwave artist, Nina, and has collaborated with musicians including D/A/D, Highway Superstar, Dana Jean Phoenix, Nina and Kristine.

Sunglasses Kid's signature sound makes him in demand as a remixer, and he has reworked tracks for synthwave artists Diamond Field, Step Rockets, Futurecop! the Backlit Infinite, Phantom Ride and others.   

As a composer, his music can be heard on commercials for Tens sunglasses and Friday The 13th The Game.

Sunglasses Kid is a regular at synthwave club nights and festivals including Outland, Retro Future Fest and Night Arcade, having performed at venues including The Clapham Grand and Melkweg in Amsterdam, alongside artists including College, Time Cop 1983, Robert Parker, Futurecop!, Maethelvin, Daniel Deluxe and Le Brock.

 

His DJ sets are a mix of synthwave, 80s funk and pop that always get the dance floor moving.
