Following recent drum and bass weapons including ‘1000 Days’ with Benny L and ‘Lockdown’ with A Plus, DJ, producer, and BBC Radio 1 presenter René LaVice now welcomes drum and bass pioneer Danny Byrd to his Device label for new collaboration ‘Boomshaka.’
Built with a rather special gig in mind and then road-tested initially when the pair played back to back at the enormous EDC event in Las Vegas last year, this one was tweaked across the following months and is now ready for full release.
Having amassed a loyal fanbase from all corners of the globe, René LaVice is a true D&B heavyweight. His innovative releases include the likes of ‘Headlock’ and ‘The Calling’ featuring Ivy Mairi whilst officially remixing for a broad spectrum of artists including Grace Carter, Diplo, DJ Fresh, Craig David, and The Prodigy. Meanwhile, Danny Byrd’s endless accolades span two decades, initially being picked up by Hospital Records and remaining at the forefront of the scene ever since.
Emerging from underground realms with a signature sound that combines elements of house, hip hop, rave, and R&B, Danny Byrd soon dominated crossover territory when ‘Sweet Harmony’ became a particular favorite on BBC Radio 1 earning Danny a wider following and international recognition.
Now set to tear up the industry once more alongside René LaVice, the pair deliver ‘Boomshaka’ marking the ultimate collaboration. Pairing energetic drum patterns with explosive synths and a captivating top line, ‘Boomshaka’ is destined to infiltrate speakers globally.
