Having smashed into the top 40 with the massive “Ill Behaviour”, and with the “Rave Digger album” launching him to the top table of UK dance music in 2010, Danny Byrd is back with none other than legendary jungle MC General Levy. Support from Radio One’s dance elite Annie Mac, Zane Lowe and Mistajam plus three playlisted singles has made Danny Byrd a household name in the UK. His partner in crime here, General Levy found international fame from his iconic lyrics to M Beat’s era-defining classic “Incredible” in the early 90s and now brings his unique sound to Danny Byrd’s “Blaze The Fire (Rah!)”.
Kicking off with a turbo-charged intro, “Blaze The Fire (Rah!)” fuses dancehall sensibility with Danny Byrd’s trademark high energy sound - all punctuated by the General’s inimitable vocal ticks and blazing energy. Leading light of the Playaz camp Sub Zero provides a stepping 2012 jump up re-interpretation, complete with shuddering subs and grinding synths. Keeping the original junglist vibe in check Sub Zero condenses the format down for the jump up contingent. A digital exclusive from Stray completes the EP, amplifying the jungle vibes with rattling breaks, punchy kicks and oodles of old skool flavour. This one's all about the drums. Enjoy!
”Blaze The Fire (Rah!)” propels Danny Byrd back into the limelight as the first new music to come from his eagerly awaited new album - scheduled for release early in 2013.
