After giving us the stream a few weeks back to his title track for the Stronger EP released last week on Black Butter Records, Kidnap Kid has posted up the B-side titled “Like You Used To” to the A+ release. Vocal-laden and emotional, “Like You Used To” is a beautiful production from the UK producer, leaving the dance floor behind and including all of the qualities of a top notch headphone song. Check out “Stronger” here and stream this easy listening jam below. √+

Black Butter is just a one-stop shop for audio gold. Repping guys like Gorgon City, Rudimental, and Kidnap Kid, the London-based imprint is undeniably at 100, and Kidnap Kid‘s upcoming Stronger EP due out March 3rd is keeping it that way. Just revealed this week is the title track and A-side to the two-tune EP — a rainy day House number with some emotional vocals that personally give me an incisive Karin Dreijer Andersson vibe. Check it out for yourself below. √+
Not sure how this guy has snuck under my radar for so long, but I’m glad he’s finally been brought to my attention with his most recent release, Thin Lines – the two-track EP from Kidnap Kid released the other week on the incredibly solid Black Butter Records. The stream has racked up nearly 150K plays via Soundcloud in 9 days, and it’s easy to see why. “Thin Lines” is soulful, old school House music, combining Lotti’s yearning vocals with on point percussion and subtle piano. The B-side, “Survive,” picks up where the title track leaves off, taking you on a 7 1/2 minute journey of emotional bliss, once again getting the piano involved to strike chords deep within. Not going to miss anything from Kidnap Kid moving forward. Stream the EP below and download a new remix and mix after the jump! √+
After seeing him poolside in Miami this past March, I just can’t seem to dislike anything from Huxley. His latest endeavor is a remix for his fellow countryman, Joel Compass, who provides perfect club vocals that Huxley puts his ever-grooving stamp on. The release is forthcoming on the UK’s Black Butter Records, and the original from Joel will be accompanied by a very cool video out soon. √+
