Kidnap takes to a secluded perch in the Catskills of Upstate New York to deliver a DJ set showcasing his emotive and captivating sound profile.
This past October, Mixmag teamed up with AKG to bring six artists to Allaire Studios - a musical getaway located in Woodstock, New York - for a unique electronic music retreat. Isolated from the noise of the outside world and provided with a plethora of instruments, recording equipment and refined audio gear, this amiable retreat delivered an exercise in nurturing new musical epiphanies through the spirit of collaboration.
Amongst these six artists was London-based DJ and producer, Kidnap. Formerly known as Kidnap Kid, his maturing sound has recently prompted him to drop the "kid" from his moniker - creating a clean slate that has moved him towards a refreshed creative process. During the retreat, Kidnap dove into his constant pursuit of what he calls the "universal rhythms" that flow through life and demonstrated how this acts as a key element to his rich musical arrangements.
Surrounded by the rolling hills and glassy lakes of The Catskills, Kidnap took the opportunity to score the picturesque location with an hour of warm and resolute music on the balcony of the Allaire Studios.
