The Kiwi music scene has been growing steadily in the last five years, but there has been a huge leap in technology over the last couple of years.
KitchIti, the Kitch tango, mumbaika, KITCH IT, KIKKIT, and KITCH KITCH are all synonymous with the Kiwi dance music scene, but are now bringing the art of the dance to iOS and Android.
The apps will be available in the App Store and Google Play in the coming months.
The first app to launch, Kipitit, features a live DJ, live DJs, a live host, live live hosts and live DJs.
Kipiti’s live DJ will also be able to upload a video of himself performing a song to YouTube.
The app features a host of new features including a live chat room where the host can share all of their songs, and an interactive video gallery that shows off the performances from the hosts.
New features to the app include a ‘Live Artist’ section, which allows the host to upload their own music for the app, and a ‘New User’ section which will allow the user to upload any songs they like.
“We wanted to provide a platform for people to be able do whatever they want, from just uploading songs to creating their own live shows, to uploading videos of themselves performing, to sharing their own artwork and creating a live video of themselves,” said Kitchi co-founder, John Sargent.
“That’s something we’re really passionate about.”
New features will include the ability to upload multiple videos, which will enable users to remix their performances to their hearts content.
New live artists will also feature on the app including the iconic John Sargeant.
Kikkit will feature live performances, as well as live DJ’s and live hosts.
It will also offer the ability for users to purchase tickets, and sell tickets to friends.
KikiTango, Kiki Kip, KikkiTango KipTi, and other Kitchit apps will also support Apple Watch as well.
New to the platform will be the ability of users to post and share videos of them performing, and uploading their own visuals.
“It’s really exciting to see what’s possible in terms of the ability and the capability of this new platform,” said Sargeth.
“There’s definitely going to be a lot of possibilities for users, and there’s a lot to discover as well, which is exciting.”
The app will be free to download, but users will need to pay for the service, as the app will also cost $2.99 per month.
The company is targeting an initial release in September.
