Danny Byrd is back and ready to blow 2013 away with a brand new single in the run up to 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”. On the flipside is “Love You Like This” which is guaranteed to charm and impress with its uplifting, vocal-driven vibe.
On Friday, Danny Byrd appeared on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio One show with a “Special Delivery” – the world exclusive of “Love You Like This”, the flipside to his collaboration with Roni Size – “Grit” which is out now. Listen back for the next week HERE!
First up is the 12″ sampler of Fred V & Grafix – “Major Happy”, a future Hospitality anthem for sure with bleepy hook and euphoric melodies. This one has been getting a lot of airplay from Annie Mac, as well as DJ support from the likes of Sub Focus, TC, Bassline Smith and more. Backed with a stylish piece from Medschool artist Lung – “Rollerball”. BUY NOW
As well as this is the 7″ sampler (possibly our favourite physical music format of all) from Danny Byrd – “Blaze The Fire (Rah!) (feat. General Levy) (Stray Remix)” which re-works the original, amplifying the old skool vibes. Accompanying this is the stripped down funk of “Dove From Above” (feat. Klose) by Raiden featuring the vocal talents of Klose. BUY NOW
Danny Byrd is back with none other than legendary jungle MC General Levy. 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!

Later that afternoon, Danny Byrd took part in the BBC Radio 1Xtra 10th birthday celebrations with MC Serocee and I-Kay.
They performed a live rendition of one of the smash hits from Danny Byrd’s 2010 “Rave Digger” album, ”Ill Behaviour” featuring I-Kay and a track called “Touchline” with Serocee.
