Producer Sessions 021: Moore Kismet talk new ‘Revenge Of The Unicorns EP’ [Interview]

15-year-old Omar Davis, better known as Moore Kismet, have released their new project, Revenge Of The Unicorns EP. A clinic in self-expression and unique sound in the bass space, the production has arrived through the NEVER SAY DIE shop.For those unfamiliar, the name “Moore Kismet” means “more than fate,” and serves as a representation of Davis finding success in the industry while sharing their story of who they really are. As Davis explains, being an openly pansexual/non-binary artist is somewhat unique in the music industry, but with much love and support from the LGBTQ+ community, this identity has become a major aspect of Davis, particularly as they strive for greater inclusivity in the music industry and beyond.Making music and growing into one’s own identity are intimately related in the context of Kismet’s creative process. In a press release, Kismet further expounded on this idea and described how the Revenge Of The Unicorns EP was both the impetus for and an emblem of personal progression, stating,Dancing Astronaut spoke with the young up-and-comer, asking production-focused questions to not only home in on the techniques that you hear on the Revenge Of The Unicorns EP, but also celebrate the release of the extended play.Why did you call the project Revenge Of The Unicorns?Do you have a typical production process and if so, what does it consist of?

Without black creators, innovators, selectors, and communities, the electronic dance music we hold so dear would simply not exist. In short, dance music is deeply indebted to the global black community and we need to be doing more. Black artists and artists of color have played a profound role in shaping the sound and culture of dance music and now more than ever, it is necessary for everyone in the music community to stand up for the people that have given us so much. Dancing Astronaut pledges to make every effort to be a better ally, a stronger resource, and a more accountable member of the global dance music community.
