Matt Relton, known professionally as Kidnap Kid, is an English electronic dance music record producer and DJ from Sheffield, Yorkshire. He is perhaps most notable for being awarded iTunes US’s ‘Best Electronic Song of 2012’ for his track “Vehl”. Relton was educated at Silverdale School in Sheffield before completing a degree in Politics and Crime at the University of Leeds.
Whilst creating his own award winning releases, Kidnap Kid 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 kicked off the year with a 16 date US Tour, supporting Rudimental, TEED, & Disclosure. This summer, he’s adding many a notch to his proverbial festival bedpost, gracing the likes of Glastonbury, Hideout, Creamfields, Osheaga (USA), Wakarusa (USA) including dates at Space, Ibiza for the Black Butter residency. 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, it looks to be a big year for Kidnap Kid.
Eli & Fur
Since breaking onto the scene in 2012, Eli & Fur have been perfecting a sound built around infectious, electronic melodies and seductive vocal lines that have been hypnotizing dance floors from London to Los Angeles. Their production techniques are as on point as ever; drawing from anything House, with an obsession for old school Chicago and touches of Detroit Techno mixed with influences of RnB, Garage and Drum and Bass.
Eli & Fur are known for their captivating sets, which have seen the duo playing alongside the likes of Maceo Plex, Hot Since 82 and Dusky. Appearing on line ups for Chibuku, Sankeys, Bugged Out, Digital and Ants, Ushuaia, with their Festival highlights including Creamfields, Leeds Festival, Bestival and the ultimate of all festivals, Glastonbury.
The duo’s debut track, ‘You’re So High’ reached the top 3 on Hype Machine and has since received over million plays on youtube. ‘Seeing is Believing’ saw the girls collaborate with Shadow Child and release on Defected, gaining almost half a million plays on Soundcloud. ‘Feel The Fire’ came on Anjunadeep and again has seen an impressive half a million plays across platforms.
2015 is shaping up to see the rise and rise of Eli & Fur. Already tipped by Beatport as 2015 Artists to Watch and supported by Pete Tong on BBC Radio 1 Dance, the girls are set to unleash an impressive collection of productions that include collaborations with the talented Joe Hertz and hot new producer out of Amsterdam, Poupon.
Their touring sees them playing in Ibiza consistently throughout the summer and Festival plays include Lost Village (UK), Secret Garden Party (UK), IMS (Ibiza), Electronica Festival (Turkey) and the Mad Decent Boat Party in Miami (US).
The girls plan to roll out the year embarking on a Thelma & Louise inspired road trip through the States. Taking on the challenge of driving across three states in two weeks to play ten cities whilst dropping into radio stations, TV networks and fan hangouts along the way. An unusual way to approach the US market but a life time dream inspired by quite possibly the coolest chics ever to grace the big screen.
So with all this to come, 2015 is looking like the year Eli & Fur will make a fresh, exciting and impressionable mark on the dance-floor and beyond.
