Delta Heavy - White Flag EP

After the widespread success of their recent ‘Paradise Lost‘ album, Delta Heavy’s untouchable work ethic has assured this momentum is continuing. Capitalising on millions of streams worldwide across multiple platforms, their next release sees them delving into a cross-pollination of genres which yet again solidifies their position as producers who can tap into a vast, versatile soundscape.

Lead single ‘White Flag’ nods to not only their flawless ingenuity, but also their ability to switch up different bpms. This is something they’re renowned for in the US; the technical ability to travel through genres translates just as well into their production as it has done in their DJ sets. Orchestrated meticulously, ‘White Flag’ juxtaposes a euphoric, incessantly infectious vocal topline with Delta Heavy’s signature thumping halftime beats, a searing bassline and surging chords. Sounding totally original, the single blends DnB with glittering Electronica resulting in the perfect follow up to ‘Ghost’,

For the VIP version Delta Heavy unleash their full DnB mettle, combining faultless dancefloor production with sparkling, dreamlike musicality. Blissed out guitars introduce the vocal before building to an anthemic club-banger that’s already nestled itself into the sets of revered DnB headliners the globe.
On the vinyl flipside, ‘Arcadia’ sees collaboration with Hospital Records tyro Metrik. The marriage of each producers’ style results in an atmospheric intro hurtling towarda a pounding, distorted bassline, arcing synth lines and crisp drums. An electro-fuelled roller that’s reminiscent of their earlier output while adding a more contemporary twist, it provides a clear example of why Delta Heavy have been a

The Tisoki ‘White Flag’ remix rolls out next; a producer who’s caught the sights of Skrillex and other big players within bass music, Delta Heavy handpicked the young gun to have his take on their single. An aggressive slab of dubstep, underpinned with electro style beats, serves up an exciting alternative

Completing the package Delta Heavy enlist highly regarded recent NightBass signee Taiki Nulight to drop the bpm to 128 and twist the original to dark, thumping groove. Pitched down vocals hang out with menacing stabs to fuel a massive slice of Bass House that should be hammered by DJs on both equally at home on daytime radio as well as late night DJ sets.

Rene LaVice - Play With Fire - Deluxe Version

The 2nd LP from Rene LaVice on the Ram Records imprint was one that cemented his reputation as one of the most musically distinct artists in his field. ‘Play With Fire’ presented a brand new twist in the Rene LaVice discography. Featuring a range of tracks that bridge the gap between genres, it’s been Rene’s most diverse output to date. And since the LP dropped on his extensive fan base, whilst snaring new audiences across the musical spectrum, he’s back with reworks on some of the LPs most outstanding titles.

‘Wave’ rolls out first, infusing a more domineering indie-rock breakdown against Rene’s signature snare, it steps even further out of the drum & bass paradigm. Still lead by vocal crescendos weaving between the mix, it’s still instantly recognisable.

Up next you’re presented with a brand new cut, one likely to grasp the attention of anyone who enjoys grimy beats and a brooding bassline. Snapping kick drums stand alongside quaking subs to take you deep into Rene’s darker sound bites. ‘Wicked it Works’ is yet again another fresh record sure to ignite the anticipation for this release. With jungle breaks and a ragga sample pushing through its layers, the track is a welcome add on to his LPs 2016 successor.
Lastly comes the retake on Rene’s ‘Lights Out’, drawing once again for the voice talents of David Boomah and contorted over a more old school uptake on the original. A rolling number that reverberates on impact, it still holds the same weight, but through an alternative construction of beats.

So here’s to another milestone in Rene LaVice’s career – one that will resound for years to come and further indent him in the genre’s history books.
