Delata Heavy - Paradise Lost - Ram Records

Out Now on ITUNES :

Five years after bursting onto the scene, Delta Heavy unveil their eagerly

awaited debut album, ‘Paradise Lost’, due for release on March 18th 2016 on

Ram Records. One of the few acts whose sound effortlessly straddles the

Atlantic, the duo’s multi-dimensional versatility is evident throughout their

inaugural LP.

2015 saw the release of singles ‘Ghost’ and ‘Punish My Love’, accompanied

by their notoriously idiosyncratic animated music videos, the former of which

was nominated for three awards including ‘One Of a Kind’ in Vevo’s Year In

Music. This year sees an extensive world tour, and this 14 track opus is the

perfect lead up, tying in all aspects of drum and bass, cinematic soundscapes

and space-age house.

The album opens with the dystopian title track, an orchestral flurry of strings

that dissolve into a grinding, half time war much that resembles Gesaffelstein

on acid. “Event Horizon’, ‘Pathways’ and upcoming club single ‘Oscillator’ see

the duo in more familiar territory, complex and thundering sci-fi dancefloor

drum and bass; whilst ‘City of Dreams’ and ‘Cut Me’ demonstrate a lighter,

more melodic touch. Soaring top lines link the epic singles ‘Ghost’, ‘White

Flag’ and ‘Reborn’ whilst ‘Conquer The Galaxy’ takes future house into the


Underpinned by meticulous production and presented as a seamless

composition, ‘Paradise Lost’ represents a benchmark in the Delta Heavy
