28 Issue 76 / 2015 HOUSE/ TECHNO The 24-year-old DJ and producer drops his FFRR debut News Bicep are XOYO's NeXt resideNts! Following on from Skream and Benji B, Bicep will be taking over XOYO for 13 weeks, and to mark the occasion, the boys are giving away limited edition Bicep 12" records to the first 50 ticket holders for each event. Bicep describe their style as "80s inspired analogue house", and their programme certainly reflects this, with the likes of Derrick May, Omar Souleyman, and Andrew Weatherall all lining up. Other highlights include Jeremy Underground, Space Dimension and Controller on July 18th, Bicep b2b Midland all night long on August 29th and Will Saul and Marquis Hawkes on 19th September. Get ready for the best 13- week workout of your lives! The Belfast boys will be taking over the club from July 4th - September 26th Sheffield man Kidnap Kid already has a string of acclaimed releases to his name. His Black Butter drop 'Vehl' was named 'Best Electronic Song Of 2012' by US iTunes, and his next two, 'So Close' and 'Survive' also fared well, racking up over 100,000 SoundCloud plays in a week and hitting the Hype Machine top spot respectively. Now he's dropped his FFRR debut, the double A-side single 'Fall/Freedom'. Both tracks are a bold new style of production from Kidnap Kid, aka Matt Relton, representing an evolution from his early work. Here he's exploring a deeper, more progressive style of house, shot through with darker techno elements. The atmospheric, moody 'Fall' builds in intensity as he layers up the production, perfect for smaller, darker underground rooms. 'Freedom' is more expansive – set around a simple, stripped back hook, the chime-imbued breakdown lifts the track, giving it a euphoric quality. Kidnap Kid is having quite a year so far – he's got Radio One play courtesy of Pete Tong as part of his Future Stars of 2015 profile, and Tong also featured him on his March Miami 2015 mix. He's already played at BPM, SXSW, Miami WMC, Coachella and Wildlife, and he's got slots at EDC Vegas, Glastonbury, Ibiza Rocks, Kendal Calling, Standon Calling, SW4 and Bestival to come. Watch out, Kidnap Kid is coming for you.
