2014 has unfolded with considerable gusto for British house trooper Kidnap Kid. He took the BBC airwaves twice under the wing of Annie Mac and confirmed UK tour duties alongside Clean Bandit later in the year, building enough positive hype to make the unveiling of latest single “Stronger” an ear-pricking affair. For his sixth appearance at Black Butter Records, the versatile talent makes serious headway on his firm yet undeniably mellow house tendencies. The collaboration of full-bodied keys, sharp grooves and distant vocal work is a haunting take on the buzz sound of the time, pitching Kidnap Kid once again at the forefront of the European talent pool with a track that is sure to make the road to WMC all the more fruitful for the UK’s latest organic house contender.
