Lane 8 & Kidnap Kid link up on collab of dreams, "Aba"

This Friday, we have been treated to a collaboration that many deep house fans will be elated with. One-half Lane 8, one-half Kidnap Kid, "Aba" is a must-listen for anyone who likes any hosue with a deep sensibility. Lane 8, whose fame came to be as a part of Above & Beyond's Anjunadeep, has had quite the year, with a new label and tour, This Never Happened, continuing interest in his unique and always surprising music. Ever the experimenter, Lane 8 has proven his talent as a standalone artist, and now he's partnered with an artist who shares his interests in depth, melody, and mood, UK artist Kidnap Kid.

Together, the pair have cemented themselves as a force to be reckoned with that fans will expect and hope to collaborate again. The creation of "Aba" started in 2014, and according to Lane 8,“I believe this track started back in 2014 - I was in London for an Anjunadeep event and came in a day early to get in the studio with Matt and see if we could come up with a good idea for a track. At some point in 2015, I put together a demo version based on what we had done, and I played that version a lot in 2015." Fans went nuts over the track as it was teased live, and now after nearly two years of testing, it's out today via Anjunadeep. 

The release is timely, as both Kidnap Kid and Lane 8 have announced they'll be supporting the Anjunadeep tour and shows in Miami this coming spring.
