Kid Adrift releases his debut EP Oxytocin through Island Records today and a provocative video for has been posted online for the new tune.

The video is the first one put together by drum & bass DJ and producer High Contrast (infamous on the drum & bass scene for his albums on Hospital Record and remixes for the likes of The White Stripes and Adele). It’s sometimes disturbing imagery is undercut with a keen streak of dark humour.

The title track Oxytocin leads with guitars, brutal beats and waves of dense electronics, synthesized strings and mechanical beats.

With clear nods to Warp Records, it’s a testament to Kid Adrift that this is very much his own work, a new unique voice for music fans to discover.

As a warning of the EP’s arrival, last week Kid Adrift released a viral video of him quite literally playing adrift, stoking the rumours that his music is made at sea and transmitted back to land.

Oxytocin, which was added to the XFM evening last week, has also been remixed by Hospital Records drum & bass duo Cyantific and is up for free download now here:
