by Kara-Lis Coverdale He's no spring chicken in the Canadian hip-hop scene, but T.O. based producer Fresh Kils hasn't really spent much time dancing in the spotlight, and it's not because he was born with a hideous gnome face or because he's an ardent agoraphobic or something. No, along with his mountains of production gear, Fresh Kils has simply been dwelling in his studio, grinding hard and banging out beats for artists like D-Sisive and Ghettosocks like he's the Christmas elf of Northern hip-hop. But all that is changing. Or, at least the behind-the-scenes part. As a solo act and as 1/2 of the production duo The Extremities, Kils is stepping up his stage game, and he's doing it by coming hard as one of the most kick ass MPC performers out there right now. In between Easter egg hunts this past holy Sunday, we sat down to chat with Kils to talk about sampling, the state of "live" hip-hop, and how the MPC has not only brought him from the studio to stage, but has changed the way he makes beats altogether.
