Ki:Theory (pronounced “Key Theory”) is the alias for American recording artist and producer, Joel Burleson, who specializes in alternative rock and electronic.
Ki:Theory’s original music is consistently compared to crossroad between Radiohead, Ratatat and Nine Inch Nails. Ki:Theory’s most recent double album, KITTY HAWK Deluxe (Kringer Records), features a version of Ben E. King’s hit “Stand By Me” that exploded on the scene in a 2014 Super Bowl ad and episode of FOX’s hit TV show, THE FOLLOWING starring Kevin Bacon. “Stand By Me” was also featured in the movie trailer for BRICK MANSIONS starring Paul Walker and RZA along with TV spots for DALLAS (TNT), and BATES MOTEL (A&E).
Ki:Theory has done commissioned remixes for Daft Punk/Tron: Legacy, Kings of Leon, Queens of the Stone Age, Cypress Hill, Rob Zombie, ODESZA, UNKLE, Rodrigo y Gabriela with Hans Zimmer and Brazilian Girls amongst others. Ki:Theory’s remix for Daft Punk’s “The Son Of Flynn” for Tron: Legacy was featured on the official remix album, Tron Legacy R3C0NF1GUR3D.
The Ki:Theory live show is mysteriously electrifying drawing comparisons to the energy and performance of Nine Inch Nails. Previous Ki:Theory tours include Phantogram, Passion Pit, DJ Shadow, Sparta and Baths.
