Delta Heavy x Dirty Audio – Stay ft HOLLY

This post was originally published on this site

UK drum n’ bass authority, Delta Heavy, has compounded efforts with LA trap producer, Dirty Audio, for their new drumstep single, “Stay,” featuring seasoned vocalist, HOLLY. “Stay” is a joint release on both DNB patriarch, Andy C‘s RAM Records and eclectic Canadian label, Monstercat — marking Delta Heavy’s debut release on the latter.

“We had a lot of fun making the track with Andrew, and we’re all super proud of how it turned out, especially as it really feels like a true blend of all our signature styles,” said Delta Heavy said of Dirty Audio, who will soon embark on his Australia/New Zealand tour.

The cross-over track wields elements of DNB, trap, and dubstep, prompting a sardonic, “Have fun deciding what genre this is,” from Delta Heavy, themselves. HOLLY’s wistful vocals lend acute contrast to the track’s high-speed DNB breaks and shrilling bass.

Stream Zeds Dead’s eight-track ‘Northern Lights’ remix EP

This post was originally published on this site

In October of 2016, Zeds Dead released their long-awaited debut studio album, Northern Lights, on their Deadbeats imprint. Around the same time, DC and Hooks spoke to Billboard about how it just felt right to launch their first proper album on their own label, noting, “We didn’t have any major labels or anything helping us out at any point in our career. In this day and age, if you have your own fanbase, what’s the point of getting with a big label?”

It was only a matter of time before the Toronto duo launched a collaborative remix EP to their dedicated fanbase. Spanning eight tracks in length, the precise and conscientious project is deliberately-crafted to appeal to different tastes, with some unexpected and unique twists on the guys’ classic melodic bass tracks along the way.

The EP, taken in its entirety, represents a sonic journey of cross-genre enlisted talent from veterans and newcomers alike, ranging from Delta Heavy‘s rework of “Lights Out,” Zeds Dead’s future house take on their own ballad, “Slow Down,” and Ganja White Night‘s commanding rendition of “This is Me” — an instant fan-favorite.

Perhaps the standout remix off the EP, however, comes from fellow Canadian and rising talent CRi‘s recreation of “Too Young” into an atmospheric ambient house anthem.

Zeds Dead share Delta Heavy’s spin on ‘Lights Out’ to announce ‘Northern Lights’ remix EP

This post was originally published on this site

When Zeds Dead released their first full-length studio album, Northern Lights, last October, they satiated months of fervent anticipation from their dedicated community. In the time since, DC and Hooks have been working with a number of heavily-leaning artists to compile an official EP of Northern Lights remixes, following up March’s “Frontlines” remix package.

The first track off the compilation, which will be released Friday, June 9, via the duo’s Deadbeats imprint, is Delta Heavy‘s formidable rendition of one of the Atlas-assisted “Lights Out.” The track begins on a meaningful and melodic note, progressing to the signature kind of dubstep drop one would expect from Delta Heavy, and eventually becomes layered with subtle DnB elements over the song’s ethereal chorus line.

Stream Delta Heavy’s “Lights Out” remix, premiered via UKF, below:

In addition to the release of the first single, fans can explore the full track list announcement for the Frontlines remix EP and its official album artwork below:

Your EDM Premiere: Delta Heavy – Kill Room [Ram Records]

This post was originally published on this site

If there’s a singular name synonymous with absolute tear-down dance floor destruction, it’s Delta Heavy. With the enormous success of their album Paradise Lost earlier in the year, I’d imagine it’s quite easy for listeners to assume it just couldn’t get much better than that. WRONG. The release I’m about to share with you is real proof that the team has no holds barred. More recently, as well, would be the epic drum and bass rework of “White Flag VIP” that has done absolute damage in the summer festival track. Without further adieu, Your EDM is proud to premiere “Kill Room”!

The track begins with a classic Delta Heavy signature introduction. With a short inception that hooks their listeners like a prize catch, soon after are thrown back into the bass-filled abyss with an enthralling reece bass breakdown. Soon after, the drop catapults through like an atomic bomb gifted with that signature Delta Heavy bass line groove. Bliss.
