Hailing from a small town in Latvia, Blood Groove & Kikis consists of Edmunds Kasperovičs and Kristaps Kārkliņš, who initially met on a party in which they both performed. They quickly discovered that they not only shared a similar taste in music, but also common career aspirations. Soon thereafter, they formed the duo that we now know as Blood Groove & Kikis.
Their collaborative work as DJs started back in fall 2006, and since that date, they have always performed together, typically playing back-to-back sets. Since 2009, they have also been producing their own original tracks and remixes – in their own words, these tracks are inspired by emotions, personal experience and different events from all around the world.
Today, you can hear their tracks on many acclaimed international radio shows, including Armin van Buuren’s “A State Of Trance”, Above & Beyond’s “Group Therapy”, Max Graham’s “Cycles”, Matt Darey’s “Nocturnal”, Andy Moor’s “Moor Music”, Jaytech’s “Jaytech Music”, Solarstone’s “Solaris International,” and more.
One of the world’s most famous magazines, PEOPLE, selected Blood Groove & Kikis’s remix of Claes Rosen’s “Starlight” [Spring Tube] for their “Hot Songs You May Have Missed in 2013” chart. Blood Groove & Kikis also released their debut artist album, “Wonderland,” in 2014, which reached the top of Beatport’s Trance and Progressive House Charts.
