Many know UK native Matt Relton as electronic music producer Kidnap Kid thanks to hit releases like “Vehl” and “Aba” with Lane 8. Relton sat down with Mixmag during an episode of their On Rotation podcast, where he discussed that he would be changing his artist name because he was “ending this chapter and starting with refreshed intentions.”
The producer will be moving forward with the artist name “Kidnap” as opposed to “Kidnap Kid” to symbolize this change. Next time fans see a new track out by Kidnap, it’s not an artist ripping off of the UK heavy-hitter’s artist name, but a reinvention of the producer himself.
