Kill Them With Colour is an inspired term to describe vibrant art that takes a form of music, as if the spectrum of sound can be visualized in colour.
French-born, DJ and producer, Wes, a.k.a. “Kill Them With Colour” started mixing music as a kid while growing up in Trinidad. He got swept up in the island’s music scene and it wasn’t long into his teenage years before he’d developed an insatiable thirst for sampling — flipping through record after record picking out the dancefloor gems that would further ignite his passion for music. What started out as a fascination for music at a young age, soon grew into an interest in the recording process, which then led into production and remixing.
Today, Wes focuses on pushing an infectious fusion of percussion-laden Afro, Tribal and House. With influences such as Disclosure, Pablo Fierro, The Deepshakerz, Silvano Del Gado and DJ Chus, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a lack of diversity within his sets, which comprise of both his own productions and others. His tracks go from the deeper end of Tribal and Afro through to the tougher grooves of House and Tech.
With over 30 million combined plays across multiple platforms, he's also become well known for remixing artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Marian Hill, ZHU, ASAP Rocky, Lana Del Rey, Drake, Bon Iver and many more. In 2018 he was approached by singer "Kapri" to produce her single "Deeper" which went #1 across Canada and earned them a Juno Award nomination for "Dance Recording Of The Year". His "Apanawa EP" was featured on Beatport's Staff Picks and Closing Essentials 2021 and his most recent single “Rico” is featured on “Beatport’s Best New Afro House: January”. A forthcoming EP will be released on Hurry Up Slowly this spring.
Wes has toured with top DJs such as Pete Tong, Felix Cartal and Troyboi, received support from Malone, The Deepshakerz, Annie Mac, Joseph Capriati, Paco Osuna, Loco Dice, Vanilla Ace and has opened for artists such as Dom Dolla, Diplo, Gorgon City, Moon Boots, Cut Copy, Classixx, Dr. Fresch, Fred Falke, Cashmere Cat and many more.
