Danny Byrd Rave Digger
Danny Byrd is back once again ..! Having smashed up dance floors and radio playlists with his huge 90s hook 'Ill Behaviour' he returns with one of the biggest and most hotly anticipated dance albums of the year. 'Rave Digger' is a non-stop helter-skelter ride of hands-in-the-air pianos, breakneck breakbeats and searing mentalism synths. Featuring the vocal dexterity of I-Kay, 'Ill Behaviour' gets you right from the word go; and is a fitting statement of intent for a project which looks set to put a rocket up the backside of UK dance music.
From the rave rework of Liquid's 'Sweet Harmony', 'Judgement Day' sees I-Kay in a more forceful mood - picking up where last years playlist contender Red Mist left off, before D+B's newest superstar Netsky joins Danny on 'Tonight', for some spinetingling synth-fuelled mayhem.
'Hot Fuzz' comes like an entire weekend rolled into one tune before things ease down to 140bpm for 'We Can Have It All'; a timeless slice of euphoric breakbeat soul. There are more laid back moments, from the beautiful 'Failsafe' featuring London Elektricity, to Zarif's soul tinged vocals on 'Wait for Me' and the classic jungle homage 'Amen Alley', all interspersed with more rave madness than you can shake a glowstick at.
Debuted exclusively by Radio One's Annie Mac and jumped on early by Mistajam and Zane Lowe, this is drum n bass with maximum crossover appeal. From diehard DnB fans who have been there since the good old days, to a whole new generation of ravers lining the dancefloors and beyond, this is music without boundaries.Track list
