K.I.N.E.T.I.K., born Christopher Mitchell, was literally born into the music.  As the son of a singer, even in the womb he was exposed to the magical power of music.  As he grew up, he began to appreciate different genres of the musical spectrum such as Gospel, Soul and Funk but his heart was truly enamoured with Hip Hop.  There was something about the beats, the rhymes, the fashion and the entire culture that he identified with and embraced.  Realising that he had a way with words, he penned his first rhyme at the age of eleven and “instead of turning back, he turned his hat backwards”.

The name K.I.N.E.T.I.K., in relation to “moving energy”, was bestowed upon him by a school friend because he could “move you mentally, physically and spiritually”.  In order to enhance his individuality, he also created the acronym “Kultural Instinctiveness Nurtured Into Effectively Tackling Incorrect Koncepts”, further reinforcing his steadfast intention of having something worthwhile to say in every verse. Influenced by the classic work of The Notorious B.I.G., Wu-Tang Clan, Nas and Jay-Z to mention a few, he continued to develop the witty, detailed and honest approach to his musical style which is still his benchmark today.

Following this, he started to showcase his skills throughout the U.K. as one half of rap duo Twisted Thoughts alongside fellow emcee Jamieson, quickly moving through the independent circuit.  Over the years, K.I.N.E.T.I.K. has been privileged enough to perform at some of the most famous venues in the U.K. namely The Royal Albert Hall and Hackney Empire as well as in countries such as France and the United States, leaving audiences amazed with his passionate and heartfelt expression.
