Delta Heavy unwrapped their debut Monstercat melody “I Need You.” At first bite, this may seem like a run-of-the-mill drum and bass coated confection. Once lovers come across the Russell Stover‘s Dark Chocolate Buttercream Caramel dubstep drop, the 18 grams of sugar that follow are well worth it.
Simon James and Ben Hall (Delta Heavy) designed an iHeartRadio/Evolution Friday night segment exhibiting a wide range of dance music subgenres: American dubstep, Australian trap, and UK drum and bass. Hall professed, “If we can hear a sonic footprint, whatever BPM its at, our aim is to tie it all together for a cohesive hour.”
Their DnB pigeonhole is ancient history. Tailored live performances are Delta Heavy’s current priority. “When we started coming through via RAM [Records], the genre barriers had dropped around bass music a lot, and we were keen to bridge those gaps and work across different genres: we said to Ram at the very beginning that we didn’t want to just make pure drum ‘n’ bass music; we wanted to do something different,” said Hall.
