Delta Heavy just put up previews for all of the tracks on their forthcoming EP ‘Down The Rabbit Role’ on their SoundCloud page! They’ve been tearing it up ever since the released of their ‘Hold Me‘ video that saw more than 2 million views on YouTube. Not only have they been receiving tons of support from other producers, they’ve also been touring all around the world as of late. With their most ambitious project to date Delta Heavy invite you to follow them ‘Down The Rabbit Hole’ into a place where a myriad of styles, genres and influences are merged into one another and combine effortlessly to create 6 hard-hitting original tracks.
The lead track of the EP ‘Get By’ throws the listener back to the turn of the century when UK garage ruled the charts. Pitched up saccharine vocals and bouncy 2 step beats are juxtaposed with a thumping dubstep switch that catapults the dance floor straight back in 2012. Their own 174 bpm remix sees more 90s nostalgia twisted into their trademark pounding drum and bass as the vocal sits on twinkling rave pianos and a reese bassline that builds to a thundering drop.
‘End of Days’ sees Delta Heavy in more familiar territory. A staple of Andy C sets in recent months, a tense and apocalyptic intro rises through grinding alarm stabs and an urgent guitar riff towards an unrelenting wall of searing synths and bass. In a similar vein ‘Turbine’ retains the dystopian, mechanical mood whilst combining more traditional jungle ingredients, rugged breakbeats and a ripping hoover lead. ‘Make It Rain’ keeps the tempo at 174 bpm but flips the genre on its head with a funky, swaggering take on the half time style.
‘Demons’ picks up from where ‘Hold Me’ left off, balancing light and shade expertly as a tropical intro of steel drums and imploring vocals cascade into an explosive conclusion.
Releasing on May 28th via RAM Records.
