KDDK is the brainchild of Russian dance music artist and producer Kirill Dzham. A regular coconspirator with producer Imanbek, "Leck" was released in December of last year, and quickly climbed the TikTok charts, connecting to new listeners with a deep, mid-tempo house beat and an instantly recognizable vocal hook.

Imanbek, born Imanbek Zeikenov, hails from a small town in Kazakhstan province named Aksu, and despite his young age has already changed the history of EDM. He is the first Eastern European musician to enter the top 5 of the US Billboard HOT 100, peaking at #4 with his multi-platinum "Roses." Now Imanbek is nominated for a Grammy in "The best remixed record" category, and “Roses” recently overcame the billion-stream threshold on Spotify to enter Spotify's all time Top-100.

Influenced by Gucci Mane and other Southern hip-hop acts, Fetty Wap first hit in 2015 as a rapper and singer with his #2 peak on the Billboard Hot 100 "Trap Queen." Born and raised in Paterson, New Jersey, Fetty (sometimes known as Fetty Guwap after Gucci Mane's GuWop alias) launched his career alongside Montana Bucks, Khaos, and P. Dice in the hip-hop group Remy Boyz.

In one of Imanbek's legendary international collabs, "Leck" is a gift to hop hop fans from around the world, mixing elements of commercial hip hop, electro house, and gangsta rap with a roster of top talent and some badass groove.

Yeah, ayy, baby, tell me what you want, like the way that you moving

Imanbek, KDDK, and hip hop mogul Fetty Wap present "Leck" as the latest drop on Effective Records, one of the top export labels from Eastern Europe in recent years. You have to mix the most unexpected ingredients to get the perfect cocktail - right?
