Kidnap Kid recently launched his new label Birds That Fly with the anthemic Moments EP, clocking up over a million plays in the past month and reaching #2 on Hypemachine.
Featuring 20 year old BBC Introducing star Leo Stannard (Black Butter), the track now sees a rework from Norwegian star Finnebassen.
Catapulted to fame by releases on Noir music, Finnebassen has since been asked to remix for Parachute Youth on Warner and become a regular on BBC Radio 1 playlists.
Earlier this month Kidnap Kid launched his new label Birds That Fly with Moments EP. Below you can watch the official video for “Moments” featuring Leo Stannard.
‘After releasing on a number of great labels over the past few years, I’m excited to have one to call my own. Birds That Fly was born of the need for a home that felt in harmony with my musical aesthetic. I’m looking forward to releasing the music I love over the years to come.‘ – Kidnap Kid

Kidnap Kid kickstarts his new label with an anthemic and emotive production that is arguably his best to date. ‘Birds That Fly’ is an indelible cut that’s timeless in nature. It’s accelerated by an equally moving and slick production, ‘Moments’ feat Leo Stannard, a captivating classic in original form as well as the paired instrumental mix.

Kidnap Kid’s versatility is what shines here. Treading a winding path, he originally made his home on the Black Butter label, but has since spread his wings to encompass a more underground aesthetic. This journey has led to the conception of Birds That Fly, a home for his own and other likeminded producers and a platform that will no doubt be a compelling force in the coming months. The vocals on ‘Moments’ belong to singer and songwriter Leo Stannard, who at only 20 years old is also part of the Black Butter family, and was recently supported by BBC Introducing.
