Podcast 142: Kyle Hall

When people talk about The New Detroit, it's a safe bet that 18-year-old producer and DJ Kyle Hall is going to be a major part of the conversation. Born into a musical family, Hall grew up in the same Motor City neighborhood as techno legends like Robert Hood, Kelli Hand, and Anthony "Shake" Shakir, was later mentored by guys like Mike Huckaby, and now sits at the forefront of his hometown's next generation. He's already dropped releases on high-quality labels like FXHE and Hyperdub, and also helms his own imprint, Wild Oats. Not bad for a kid who's not even old enough to drink yet. Fresh off some tour dates in Asia and prior to his latest European jaunt, we pinned Hall down long enough to put together an exclusive mix for the XLR8R podcast series. Combining masters of the craft with similarly fresh-faced new artists, the mix makes clear that with folks like Kyle Hall taking the reins, the future of Detroit is in good hands.
