A Recent signee to Black Butter Records (home of crossover phenomenon Rudimental and Gorgon City), he’s got some big remixes already behind him (see Emeli Sande and Rudimental) – most recently producing the new Lulu James track with Dave Okumu.
‘Thin Lines’ is yet another sublime single from Kidnap Kid following the release of ‘So Close’, which racked up a staggering 100k Soundcloud plays in just one week. It’s backed with b-side ‘Survive’, a 7 minute rolling track that offers a glimpse at the other side of the Kidnap Kid coin.
