Kidnap Kid returns with a new single 'Stronger', released March 3rd 2014 on label Black Butter.
'Stronger' sees the award winning young London via Sheffield, producer, real name 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.
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 favourites, alongside official remixes for Disclosure, Emile Sande and Rudimental among others, have seen him rack up a 1.4 million strong following on Soundcloud.
