Premiere: Kidnap ‘Aurora’

Kidnap’s new EP is a melodic exploration of personal growth…

Matt Relton spent the past six years producing under his Kidnap Kid monicker. Now, however, it seems he wants to move on from his musical nascence into a new era of maturity and intent.

Operating simply as “Kidnap” since last year, Relton steps further into this phase with ‘Ashes’ a melodic, crisp three-track EP on his own Birds That Fly imprint, his second under the new alias. On ‘Aurora’ – premiering below – the Sheffield-born DJ/producer crafts a polished, emotive track with nostalgic trance flavours, warm, plucked synths and resolute energy.

The EP’s triptych of tasteful productions is a strong move for the producer and one which signifies a newfound purpose and progression. Check out ‘Aurora’ below. ‘Ashes’ is out on 16th March. You can pre-order it here.
