220 KID: “This release is a complete dance music dream for me, releasing on a legendary label part of the family that provides the home of dance music and every DJ’s dream. Alongside one of the most iconic voices in dance music and with additional productional and mix by the man behind the one of the biggest songs of the year, John Summit’s ‘Where You Are’. This song sums up my journey of dreaming and hard work, I first made it on my floor in an attic room in lockdown whilst dreaming of where I can take my career and this summer it will be in the ears of the Tomorrowland Mainstage and out around the world by the same team. It really is one of those special and pinch me moments of my career and I can’t wait to see everyone dancing and singing along soon.”
220 KID first came to prominence in 2020 when ‘Don’t Need Love’, his collaboration with GRACEY, flew into the Top 10, exceeded 100 million streams, and was nominated for Best British Single at the BRITs. It wasn’t long before he achieved an even bigger moment, when he teamed with Billen Ted for a remix of Nathan Evans’ ‘Wellerman’ which spent two weeks at #1 during a 14-week run in the Top 10, amassed 500 million+ streams, and was again BRIT Award nominated, this time for Song of the Year. 220 KID’s other collaborations or remixes include with artists such as Doja Cat, Anne-Marie, Tiёsto, LANY, MK, Sam Fischer, Becky Hill, JC Stewart, Dillon Francis and Jake Bugg.
