When words fail, music has the ability to depict the deepest of human emotions and once again Kidnap Kid uses his signature emotive and sophisticated production to do just that. He returns to Birds That Fly, the label he founded less than a year ago with ' Brokenhearted' an EP containing two original tracks.
“Brokenhearted is a reaction to the immense sadness in the world. My way of processing endless tragedy and distant despair. Mist, on the other hand, is a more hopeful response; a faraway light at the end of the tunnel” -
Musicians have been making music about love and heartbreak for hundreds of years and Kidnap Kid’s statement on the eternally relevant topic starts with' BrokenHearted',a track that taps into the memory vaults. Next up is 'Mist' whose simple melody is layered over intricate sounds to create an immensely absorbing track.
The start of 2016 saw Kidnap Kid launch his Birds That Fly imprint as a platform for his own music as well as a means to support like minded producers, such as Applebottom and Amtrac, both releasing on the label with great success. The label’s debut release was from Kidnap Kid himself and ‘ Moments’ was met with such high acclaim it collectively reached 10 million streams, 1.3 million of those coming from Spotify and subsequently made the Spotify chart in over 10 countries. It was championed by several Radio 1 DJs and was the closing record for many, including Maceo Plex who closed his set at CRSSD festival with the track.
