Christmas has come early for Alien Music producer Rude Kid who announced on Thursday that he had signed a record deal with Relentless/Sony.

The talented east Londoner has received praise and support in the past from DJs such as Westwood, Ras Kwame and Mistajam for his beats and has worked with pretty much everyone in the grime world, including Skepta, Wiley, P-Money and Griminal.

The Are you Ready star’s distinctive ‘Alien Music’ sound doesn’t focus solely on grime, but also dub step, funky and techno. However if you thought that now he’s signed, Rude Kid might start to stray from the grime scene you would be mistaken.

The producer reassured his Twitter followers saying:

We’re glad to hear it. Congratulations from Pappzd.
