                                                        IN THE SPOTLIGHT

                                    MR KITO - THE MIDDLE OF EVERYTHING

MR KITO is the musical solo project of Eric Michot, a French multi-instrumentalist and producer living in Cape Town since 2008.

Having played extensively in the local indie music scene, Eric began writing and recording his own songs during 2012.

The MR KITO project launched in March 2013 and success came quickly due to a very innovative approach to marketing. MR KITO immediately made four albums of music freely available across various online platforms, BandCamp, Myspace, and Soundcloud to name a few.

The albums (Pretty Nothingness, Pack of Egos, The Weatherman and Who We Believe To Be) showcased the eclectic mix of influences that make the MR KITO sound, from alternative rock to electronic.

Added to the mix of musical influences (including Radiohead, Muse, Beck and Sparklehorse) is a heavy dose of experimenting and an enigmatic approach to lyrics.

By featuring on several online platforms at once and focusing on simply getting the music out there rather than sales, MR KITO was able to get to the enviable response from music fans worldwide. Playlisting on Sweden’s alternative station, Radio Andra, Network Radio in South Africa, Australian’s New Tribe Z Radio and KMS Radio from France, featured in online magazines such as MRU TV (Ireland) Trike’s Trax of Fame (Canada) and 110 000 online fans were just some of the highlights of the last few months.

MR KITO has now debuted on the iTunes store, with the release of the 5th and 6th album, My Tattooed Self. and The Middle of Everything . A music video for the first single “Little Sun” is currently in production.

                              The 6th release for Mr Kito is "The Middle Of Everything" !! It features 9 experimental but accessible songs from singer/songwriter and only band member Eric Michot , who not only plays all instruments but also provides clean crisp production as well !! Michot provides intriguing lyrics and a unique vocal style sometimes reminiscent of Syd Barret(Pink Floyd) or Jim Reid(Jesus&Mary Chain) !!
                             Attacking many musical styles experimental , progressive , noise pop , psychedelic , electronic , rock , 80's alt with influences from Jesus & Mary Chain , Brian Eno , King Crimson , Lou Reed , T Rex  , "The Middle Of Everything" becomes the "Center" of  everything ! XXXcellent and recommended !!
                             My stand out pics are : Little Sun , Wake Up , Wait And Turn , The Witch and The Hunter , Time On My Hand and Nowhere Else To Go !!
