Oliver Sabin, also known as Unicorn Kid is a Scottish electronic music/chip music composer and musician from Edinburgh. When asked about the name of the act, Sabin states "There’s no real story behind the name, it just kind of came about and fitted in with the fun, magical nature of the music." Sabin first started writing electronic music when he was 15. By the time he was 16, Sabin started recording under the name “Unicorn Kid”. Emerging in 2007, Unicorn Kid helped spark the brief revival of chiptune, a genre which involves making dance music using the sound chips from old game consoles. This was alongside such performers as Anamanaguchi, RushJet1 and Dubmood.
He first started producing and mixing seapunk-styled music, inspired in the sea and the space. After his considerable first success, Pure Space, he changed his style into more hardcore tunes. Now he is considered on the of the main representants of the come-back of raving, a music movement which features electronic music and light or laser shows.
