Kidnap Kid closed last year with the accolade iTunes US 'Best Electronic Song of 2012′ for his debut release 'Vehl' on cutting-edge indie, Black Butter Records. Now Kidnap Kid returns with 'So Close' as his second release on 25th March 2013 (available to download from 4th March).
Whilst creating his own award winning releases, Kidnap Kid aka Matt Relton extends his talents to remix and production duties, smashing official remixes for Emeli Sande and Disclosure, and recently co-producing tracks for Lulu James. Out of the studio, Kidnap Kid will be heading off on a 16 date US Tour in March, supporting Rudimental, TEED, AlunaGeorge & Disclosure.
With support coming from both radio and club tastemakers plus a loyal and supportive fan base, who's interaction with his recent SoundCloud upload can testify, 2013 looks to be a big year for Kidnap Kid.
Caleb Cornett was born and raised in the small town of Morehead, Kentucky. Bluegrass and psychedelic rock were key components of his early years in the South long before Daft Punk and Giorgio Moroder took over. "My dad was really into bands like Pink Floyd, Yes, and Tangerine Dream," says Cornett. In high school, his musical projects were modeled from the aesthetics of "more dramatic music" like Sigur Rós and Explosions in the Sky.
Cornett's exposure to indie acts, and eventually to house music, came from spending Friday nights watching MTV's Subterranean. During the half-hour chunk of indie programming, he fell in love with songs like Dirty Vegas' "Days Go By" and Prodigy's "Breathe" and the "kick drum… high hat… snare" notably absent from classic rock and folk. With the then-nascent Napster, Cornett feverishly downloaded and digested records from the likes of Fatboy Slim and the Chemical Brothers…Caleb had found the sound.
A decade later, a 25 year old Cornett is known to the world as Amtrac. With a few year's worth of incredibly diverse remixes and originals under his belt, Amtrac has come into his sound at the convergence of deep house, garage, and disco. The vibe is part poolside, part lounge, part mainstage, depending on where the needle runs. If you've ever warmed up to house from a cautious distance – Amtrac is an opening to rediscover the genre.
With a background in film scoring, Eno has made a scene for himself soundtracking the upscale rooftops and chic bunkers of New York City. With a love for luxurious deep-house flavors and future soul, he fuses a seductive and rich blend to make the high class sweat and the undergrounds shake. His vast resume includes residencies & regular appearances at Soho House, Norwood, Morgans Hotel Group, Equinox & Sleep No More among others. He has played Berlin, Toronto & seven cities in the US, opening for a slew of names including Amtrac, Plastic Plates, Sevnth Wonder, Chris Malinchak, Bufi & Grammy Nominated Genji Siraisi of Groove Collective. He has gained support for his original productions and live shows from Do Androids Dance, Okay Future, NYC VS TOKYO & Undrgrnd Sound.
