Liverpool native Kevin Williams got into music production as an adolescent, inspired by the U.K. hardcore tunes played by his older brother. A little over a decade after Kokiri started to make electronic dance music, he had a breakthrough hit with “Turn Back Time (Retrospect)” (2015), a single released on Ministry of Sound in the U.K. and on Big Beat/Atlantic in the U.S, taking the radio airwaves by storm. Annie Mac & Pete Tong (BBC Radio 1) simply couldn’t get enough. Williams continued to release more A-sides for an assortment of labels including Love & Other, Perfect Havoc, and Armada Deep, including the Adam F collaboration “Harmony” released on Danny Howard’s Nothing Else Matters imprint as well as the solo productions “Chasing” and “Other Side of Love” (all 2016-2017). His productions have quite rightly courted a whole host of tastemaker champions from David Guetta & Afrojack, Oliver Heldens & Sam Feldt, Annie Mac & Danny Howard.

The last couple of years have seen him rack play after play on BBC Radio 1 with MistaJam making releases “Adolescence” and “Joy” both his Future Anthem in each case. Further huge wireless support has come from Scott Mills on Radio 1 Party Anthems and the love also grows ever stronger across the Kiss Network with tastemakers from Joel Corry, SKT to Ben Malone all putting their weight of support behind one of Liverpool’s finest.

Walk On Water is written by Kokiri, George Kwali (best known for his hit Crank It), Aiden Martin and Yasmin Jane. Kokiri adds in his signature synthesiser sound mixed with a lush and catchy vocal performance from UK singer/songwriter Aiden Martin.

‘Walk On Water’ marks yet another huge release for Perfect Havoc, also a management and events company. The label has hit over 300 million streams on Spotify, Apple and YouTube, holds platinum sale awards and two UK Top 10 Platinum records with Joel Corry and its roster of breaking talent such as Tobtok, Karen Harding, The Aston Shuffle, PS1, Oliver Nelson, Freejak to name a few. The label A&R’s have an acute ear for both underground and mainstream hits, licensing to labels including Atlantic Records, Big Beat, Columbia Records, RCA, Ministry of Sound, Polydor, Toolroom, Thrive and Astralwerks. Perfect Havoc is also a dab hand in the club world, throwing pop-up parties around the globe in London, Norway, Sweden, LA/San Francisco, Paris and South Korea.
