Despite touring across the Atlantic and reaffirming their position as electronic-heavyweights globally, Delta Heavy have even had time to craft this next single with absolute precision. Demonstrating a multi-dimensional approach to music making, 'Ghost' and 'Tremors' are perfectly juxtaposed and pedestal the duo's vast spectrum of musicality.
They also flex their A&R skills, employing a host of artists to redevelop their already stellar-production standards. Both Zomboy and Infuze using their calibre and paying homage to ‘Ghost’ whilst twisting it into two slabs of bass which are almost unrecognisable.
‘Ghost’ epitomises the production-standard set by Eaton’s biggest bass outlet. Slowly building vocals relay against a colossal break, which ebbs and then cascades into peddled drum beats and elevating synth patterns. With vocal crescendos then dipping you into half-time, it’s impossible not to see this record exploding the stage at any festival this year.
On the other hand, ‘Tremors’ explores a totally different territory. Taking the feel of an old-school pounding riddims and infusing it with a futuristic, LFO-lead bassline, ‘Tremors’ is more reminiscent of the genre’s darker undercurrent. Relentlessly rolling forward on pounding subs and driven forward by a creepy, cinematic vocal sample, Delta Heavy have followed up their last output with impeccable style and versatility.
Both ‘Ghost’ and its flipside are sure to be reloaded through sets this summer, they create a journey which will only builds your anticipation to witness Delta Heavy at the biggest dance festivals the world has to offer. Available from 24.07.2015
