Heady, ethereal, and trance-like, Kidnap Kid's "Brokenhearted" gives us deep, pulsating house music perfect for late night forays into the underground.
With arpeggios that drift and vocals that stab feels into your marrow, "Brokenhearted" exceeds in delivering the atmospheric tension notable in Kidnap Kid's sound. This track creaks, blips, and creeps in a way that feels custom made for 3 A.M. in a dimly lit club - or cavern - and wreaks of a maturity much needed in dance music at the moment. As each synth note punctuates the heavy low end, and pushes this deep, tech jam into each subsequent movement, the atmosphere of it gathers a headiness that feels distinctly European, but is undeniably alluring.
Paired with the video, a series of soaring shots over landscapes that cave in on one another, "Brokenhearted" leaves a lasting impression that feels distant, but is warm and inviting all the same. It's alien, but resonant.
