Kidnap Kid made his name with a string of successful singles, with debut ‘Vehl‘ on Black Butter going on to receive the accolade of US iTunes ‘Best Electronic Song of 2012‘. Follow up ‘So Close‘ racked up over 100k plays on Soundcloud in just one week, and summer anthem ’Survive‘ went straight to the top of the Hype Machine charts. These bonafide club favorites have seen him rack up a 2.5 million strong following on Soundcloud.
Kidnap Kid returns with his newest single ‘Stronger’, which sees Matt Relton apply his singular touch to a six-and-half-minute dark and emotionally charged house epic. Highlighted by expressive piano chords and a haunting vocal refrain, ‘Stronger’ displays the deft musical instincts and production flourishes that have singled him out as one of the UK’s hottest up and comers.
2014 has been filled with a comprehensive list of UK and US solo dates, performances at some of the most highly regarded festivals – Coachella, Glastonbury, Tomorrow World – to name a few, as well as tours supporting Rudimental, Disclosure, TEED and Clean Bandit.
With support coming from both radio and club tastemakers and a loyal and supportive fan base, Kidnap Kid continues to raise the stakes higher with each new offering, promising big things for him across the coming year.
