Boy Kid Cloud

Boy Kid Cloud is riding the tail end of the wub-bassline dubstep train, but he’s doing it with some pretty good falsetto vocals, and an upbeat tone.

Boy Kid Cloud has picked out his current top 5 tracks for us – so check it below. Also, it seems that his brother is in the Fun Lovin Criminals?! That was a new one to us…
