Kidnap Kid Details
White Noise Special Edition
with Pat Lok & Wmnstudies
Kidnap Kid closed last year with the accolade iTunes US ‘Best Electronic Song of 2012′ for his debut release ‘Vehl’ on cutting-edge indie, Black Butter Records. Now Kidnap Kid returns with ‘So Close’ as his second release on 25th March 2013 (available to download from 4th March).
Whilst creating his own award winning releases, Kidnap Kid aka Matt Relton extends his talents to remix and production duties, smashing official remixes for Emeli Sande and Disclosure, and recently co-producing tracks for Lulu James. Out of the studio, Kidnap Kid will be heading off on a 16 date US Tour in March, supporting Rudimental, TEED, AlunaGeorge & Disclosure.
With support coming from both radio and club tastemakers plus a loyal and supportive fan base, who’s interaction with his recent SoundCloud upload can testify, 2013 looks to be a big year for Kidnap Kid.
