Kidnap Kid reinvents himself as Kidnap

This post was originally published on this site

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.

Lane 8 & Avoure – Let Me

This post was originally published on this site

San Fransisco-based producer Lane 8 has been a Dancing Astronaut favorite ever since he was first spotlighted by Above & Beyond‘s Anjunadeep label. After delivering on his hotly-anticipated sophomore album, Little By Little, earlier this year, the releases keep pouring in.

Now Daniel Goldstein, the multi-talented musician behind the Lane 8 moniker, has teamed up with unknown talent Avoure for a mellow composition, out on the former’s This Never Happened  imprint. The track flows along in pursuit of it’s title, “Let Me,” in which listeners are taken a gradual journey of self-discovery and yearning for what’s around the next bend. As each new element layers gently onto the next, blending into a beautiful symphonic cacophony, the two artists have their audience begging to let them have their release.

Lane 8 reveals horde of new music in his debut BBC Essential Mix

This post was originally published on this site

Daniel Goldstein, better known as Lane 8, took to BBC’s Radio 1 Essential Mix to heighten an already watershed year in the producer’s career.

The two hour deep/melodic house mix is nothing short of a transcendent expedition through Lane 8’s past, present, and future. Despite his recent album release, Lane 8 showers the listener with unreleased tracks, starting with “Bluebird” a delicate, yet rousing collaboration with fellow This Never Happened artist, Anderholm. Lane 8’s Anjunadeep days seep into the folds via an acapella version of his 2014 “Diamonds” which he mashes with his own delicious rework of deadmau5‘s “Not Exactly.” Selections from his recent LP Little By Little not only makes frequent appearances, but are heavily remixed by the likes of Dirty South, Khaen, and Anjunadeep up-and-comer, Ben Böhmer.

Earlier this year, Goldstein released his Little By Little album via his very own, This Never Happened label. The imprint is predicated on its creator’s desire to deliver raw, authentic human experience and interaction. He is currently in the midst of his international Little By Little Tour, in which no cameras and/or phones are permitted to ensure fans “connect with each other and the music in the purest way possible.”
