Whizz Kid - “There’s Conjuring To Be Done” (BS026 - 2014) 

An amazing LP! I really urge you all to get hold of it… you’ll love it! (Phil Vickery - “In-Tune” BCfm)

These whizz kids sure sound like they’re having a blast and you’ll easily find yourself caught up in their happy party tunes. A children’s album for adults? Or maybe it’s an adult album that the kids can get into as well? No matter. Either way, it’s a refreshing concept, flawlessly executed, and a total joy from beginning to end. (Jeff Penczak - It's Psychedelic Baby Magazine)

Whizz Kid and “Kid Santa” from the album “There’s Conjuring To Be Done” - from the marvellous Bearsuit Records label” (Tom Ravenscroft - BBC 6 Music)

Experimental music is often a double-edged sword, but in the case of Whizz Kid, I was positively surprised. Especially the first 4 tracks are pure genius! (Pascal Thiel - DisAgreement)

“There’s Conjuring to Be Done” addresses the child in all of us.  Opening track, “Clones” starts like a lullaby before tripping into the toy box and emerging with a smile. (A Closer Listen)

So delicious. Tubular Bells for toddlers! (Weerthof)

“Kid Santa” the frankly playfully deranged Whizz Kid …step back a spell and listen close and the bonkers brigade of belching horns, surreal cartoonish coos and music box mosaics extract a teasingly disarming and lolloping bandstand fantasia that sounds as though its been cobbled together in a Stanshall-ese kitchen pantry. (Mark Barton - Losing Today)

I’m liking this! (Marc Riley - BBC 6 Music)

Whizz Kid - "Covered In Santa Wheels" EP .

To say that Whizz Kid defy genre categorisation would be beyond the realms of mere understatement. Avant-garde electronic genius might be a more apt way of defining what they're about.

The Yellow and Blue EP by Whizz Kid is an interesting and compelling piece of work. Whizz Kid make an interesting blend of dreamy funk fuelled breakbeat and smokey electronica that sounds like it came from the back of beyond.

Whizz Kid you slyly suspect may well prove to be in time the labels impish enfant terrible. “Summer Bubbles" should first and foremost appeal greatly to admirers of Raymond Scott’s ‘soothing sounds’ library. Impishly inspired.

This really is an EP well worth a listen. "The Yellow and the Blue" is a great window into the darker side of electronic music.

Surreal sound worlds. The Yellow And Blue EP is an experimental indie post rock record that should be accessible enough to reach an audience beyond the arty avant-garde crowd.

A jubilant piano-and-glockenspiel-laden romp from Whizz Kid

Whizz Kid’s tracks all have something seductively foreboding about them.

Child-like melodies (courtesy of bubbly synth and xylophone respectively) with threatening distorted bass vocals. Strangely intriguing.

Sparky's magic piano gets treated with anti psychotic medication after getting trapped in the grooves of a Riuchi Sakamoto record. Curiously unsettling.
