Danny Byrd is back and ready to blow 2013 away with this rambunctious double A-side sampler, as we approach the release of his third studio album later this year.
First he teams up with Bristol based Full Cycle legend and Mercury Music Prize winner Roni Size for the explosive, dancefloor-driven “Grit”. Bringing together two legends of the D&B scene for the first time “Grit” has an exuberant, larger than life appeal that will surely make it a favourite amongst DJs and punters alike. Dropping like a car alarm going off in the dance and answered by a juddering sub of gargantuan proportions, the track rolls out with a robotic gospel choir adding intrigue and melodic soul.
The double A is Danny Byrd’s “Love You Like This”. Guaranteed to charm and impress, this is an uplifting, vocal-driven slice of D&B, accessible and engaging and will set the dancefloors on fire with its hands-in-the-air panache. Classic “Stardust” era French House recalled thanks to a tasty Alan Braxe sample, giving this record cross genre appeal. Recalling the halcyon days of disco drum+bass at its funky finest, this record has become an instant classic at Hospitality with the likes of Netsky, High Contrast and Danny Byrd himself pulling it back for the rewind.
Watch out for the video promo (featuring a number of familiar faces in unexpected places) - forthcoming on Hospital Records YouTube channel.
