Inspired by the golden age of house music combined with his pop music collaborations and Latin roots, Cid D Kid’s refreshing Tech-House and Progressive fused sound (occasionally infused with soulful, female vocals) seamlessly bridge the old school and new school of dance music. Cid D Kid - also known as Brian Cid - was raised in the Dominican Republic, later moved to South Florida and is currently residing in New York City where he produces and engineers a variety of genres ranging from Dance, Rock to Hip Hop.
In a short period of time behind the commercial music scene, Brian Cid has produced and engineered projects for Lady Gaga, Beyonce, The Disco Biscuits and Snoop Dogg – just to name a few. With continued success proving his talents behind the scene, in March of 2011, Brian Cid validated his multi-genre talent when he remixed Rihanna’s chart topping single, “What’s my Name” released on his SoundCloud. Impressed by Brian Cid’s talents and success of the remix, legendary House music DJ and producer, Todd Terry, humbly offered to mentor and work with Brian Cid. Later that year, Brian Cid released his first original record entitled “Slave to the Beat” with little to no marketing under Terry’s label, In House Records, and surprisingly it received much support.
Keeping his momentum and expressing another one of his many talents, Brian Cid began Dj’ing at well-known, intimate NYC clubs and venues resulting in a steady growth of appreciation for his unique approach, style and sound. With generous offers to appear and perform at the Winter Music Conference '12 [WMC], known as the ground zero for electronic dance music creators and fans from around the globe, Brian Cid (a.k.a Cid D Kid) is shaping his space on the center stage.
Currently working on various releases with different labels, Brian Cid continues to produce and engineer notable, multi-genre projects. However, paving his own lane on the house music scene as a Producer/DJ, Brian Cid is truly inspired by the legendary Erick Morillo. “Besides the fact he makes timeless music and we both grew up in the Dominican Republic, we share a similar aesthetic. We both appreciate vocal heavy dance tracks, although I’m here to carry on tradition while providing a breath of fresh air to the music that influenced me growing up,” says Cid.
