Battering down the doors of the genre elitists come a pair of producers plucked from the ranks of Ram’s new generation of incredible music making talents. In little over a year Delta Heavy, or Si James and Ben Hall to their mums, have already proven their drum & bass metal with a succession of heavy-hitting original tracks.
Superb remixes for the likes of Example, Avicii and Chase & Status ft. Tinie Tempah followed and have secured Delta Heavy as a name to watch, but their highly anticipated follow up to the massive debut single ‘Space Time’ is likely to be a crowning moment for these young producers, as names such as BBC Radio 1’s Skream & Benga and Sara Cox are already lining up to show their support.
Packed with energy, this single takes dubstep, drumstep and drum & bass formulas, infusing them with enormous electro influences, slamming drums and razor sharp production, then spits them back out with rave-destroying force.
‘Overkill’ chops between an immense half time drop and traditional drum & bass two step rhythms all smashed together with cheeky cut up vocal snippets, euphoric chord progressions and tearing electro synth leads. Undoubtedly built for maximum club destruction, this one will have everyone jumping no matter what time of night it’s dropped.
Flip over and ‘Hold Me’ brings the tempo down to 140bpm but retains all of Delta Heavy’s incredible intensity. Pounding beats and grinding bassline combinations are overlaid with unforgivingly catchy pitched vocals that lead to soaring epic 80s synths and a powerful 4×4 mid-section that won’t fail to destroy any dancefloor.
