THE KDMS Short Info

The KDMS is an international supergroup – or rather super-duo. It's first half is Max Skiba, Polish native, Silesian-bred electronic wunderkind and massively talented producer and musician well known for his solo releases on labels like Prins Thomas Internasjonal records or Under The Shade. The second: Kathy Diamond, prolific British singer, the true disco diva for the 21st century (also known for her solo work with Maurice Fulton on Permanent Vacation).

The project is currently taking the world by storm through a string of hit singles: The KDMS combine hypnotic rhythms with addictive pop melodies carrying clever lyrics – a rare achievement in today's formulaic world of club-inspired pop music. Singles "Never Stop Believing" or "Tonight" are definitely bound to please for more than one season, successfully fusing a sort of Slavic sensibility and ambiguity with a typically British sophistication and peculiar sense of humor.
The band was unexpectedly supported by artists like Snoop Dogg (on his one and only disco DJ mix "Snoopalicius") and the prolific band Hot Chip (several remixes by band-members, notably Alexis' Taylor “Wonderman” cover). The KDMS was also remixed by disco day one pioneer and legend Nicky Siano (The Gallery, Studio54), Soft Rocks, Morgan Geist (Storm Queen), Nick McCarthy (Franz Ferdinand) among others.
The duo recently completed their long-awaited second album “The New Old Normal” (release to be announced soon, cover art above). The first single “Terminal One” will be out in autumn via KingOfKong records. Be prepared for a new show full of deep new music!
Darshan Jesrani / Metro Area about the upcoming album:
"I'm getting late 70s radio AOR/soft rock vibes from these songs! The references are great – late 70s strong female leads. I don't think anyone has really explored this."

SELECTED PRESS:
Boiler Room performance (film still)
THE GUARDIAN / PAUL LESTER
"Though they don't reinvent the form, this duo make disco seem less like a museum piece and more like a contemporary genre. Yes sir, they can boogie."
RESIDENT ADVISOR / STEPHANE GIRARD
“...the kind of non-ironic, let's-slap-that-bass-like-there-is-no-tomorrow disco”
DJ MAG UK / PAUL CLARKE "Dive right in"
ELECTRONICBEATS / DANIEL JONES
"They obviously know their stuff when it comes to making a party their own."
GROOVE / BURKHARD WELZ
"Der slicke Disco-Funk und die Piano-Disco gehen hier eine zwanglose Verbindung ein, die durchaus länger als einen Sommer halten kann."
MAGNETIC MAG / YOSH
"Watching them double down on their already notable careers is a welcome excitement."
DJ MAG IT / GIOSUE IMPERIEZZI "KDMS: la risposta disco ad Adele"
GOTTADANCEDIRTY "Modern disco classic."
OUT / ALEX PANISCH "Drag diva’s dream"
FLAVOR-MAG
"Le groupe le plus feel good du moment."
FLUX FM
"Die große Popgeste der schon erwähnten Eurythmics mischt sich mit 70er Jahre Disco, Club- Beats und manchmal, wirklich nur manchmal, mit klitzekleinen Spice Girls-Momente."
POPSERVATIONS
"The KDMS’ revelatory revision makes me wish Madonna would take a break from tour rehearsals and re-record “Give Me All Your Luvin’,” copying their new template in full."
VULTUREHOUND MAGAZINE / CLAUDIA FOXCROFT
"The KDMS have paved the way for a new wave of modern electronic pop, combining such genres as funk and soul with their own distinctly glamorous sound. It’s well worth a listen, you’re in for a real treat."
FLATCOMMINICATION
"Ce premier album des KDMS les propulse sans aucun doute au coeur du mouvement indie- disco-house qui émerge en ce moment, avec une touche de glamour et de pop qui les rend irresistibles."
SALACIOUSSOUND / MELISSA SERANO
"The Duo gained praise for their stellar remake of Madonna’s “Give me all your luvin”, putting th original to shame, they continue to impress with their uber cool LP Kinky Dramas & Magic Stories."
BEATSANDBEYOND
"With this album ‘The KDMS emerge with genre-defying personality, embracing an array of underground electronic styles with their uniquely deep, dirty but glamorous pop sound’."
PAPAERBLOG / TURNER "Grupo a seguir”
FANTASTICPLASTICMAG / JOSE A MARTINEZ
"Su disco “Kinky Dramas & Magic Stories”, que ya lleva en el mercado casi dos meses, ya debería haber girado en mil y un reproductores de música, sin importar el formato; y sus mejores cortes, en clubes y discotecas de medio mundo."
DANCELIKE SHAQUILLE O'NEIL / TONY D ONGHIA
"È in uscita anche l ́ album di debutto di The KDMS e si preannuncia come una delle novitá piú ghiotte per questo inizio d ́estate 2012."
MUSIKEXPRESS
"Die Kunst des Understatements: Disco-Funk von einem englisch-polnischen Doppel."
CULTURMAG / CHRISTINA MOHR
"Typisch britischem schwarzem Humor dem üblichen Dancefloor-Herzschmerz meilenweit voraus. Don ́t miss!"
YESTEFINDEQUE / IVAN
"Sin duda The KDMS presentan un sobresaliente debut con este "Kinky Dramas and Magic Stories.""
