After a landmark 2016 Delta Heavy set their sights on the new year with the release of latest single Kaleidoscope. Musically the tracks represent a departure from the violent sounds of their most recent work, as the duo return to the epic, vocal-led style of their album highlight, White Flag.
Following their 65+ date worldwide tour and BBC Radio1 Essential mix, they’re set to capitalize on their success with yet more stellar releases. Becoming a household name and staple on the major festival circuit, with sets at Reading & Leeds, SW4, Electric Daisy Carnival and Glastonbury plus many others, 2017 is looking to be another phenomenal period for the production outfit.

DELTA HEAVY RELEASE MASSIVE TRACK ‘KILL ROOM’ OUT NOW VIA RAM RECORDS
2016 hasn’t been an ordinary year for UK bass act Delta Heavy. Kicking it off with their debut album, ‘Paradise Lost’, which launched straight into the top 10 dance charts in both the UK and US, it has been nothing shy of ground breaking. Covering over 60 dates internationally on the album tour including a headline slot at The Common – Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds, Secret Garden Party, EDC Las Vegas, The Warehouse Project, SW4 and Creamfields plus a string of club and festival shows. The British duo are about to shift things up a gear yet again, seeing the year to close with their first Radio 1 Essential Mix, a fortnightly residency on US national radio station iHeart, and 2 brand new club records.
‘Kill Room’ sees the duo retracing their steps into the darkly epic and menacing sound of Paradise Lost. While their vocal-led previous single ‘White Flag’ hinted at glittering pop sensibilities, ‘Kill Room’ is brutal reminder of their renowned ability to dismantle dance floors across the lands; an expertly produced slice of cutting edge DnB drawing on influences past and future.
ive years after bursting onto the scene, Delta Heavy unveil their eagerly awaited debut album, ‘Paradise Lost’. One of the few acts whose sound effortlessly straddles the Atlantic, the duo’s multi-dimensional versatility is evident throughout their inaugural LP.
2015 saw the release of singles ‘Ghost’ and ‘Punish My Love’, accompanied by their notoriously idiosyncratic animated music videos, the former of which was nominated for three awards including ‘One Of a Kind’ in Vevo’s Year In Music. This year sees an extensive world tour, and this 14 track opus is the perfect lead up, tying in all aspects of drum and bass, cinematic soundscapes and space-age house.
The album opens with the dystopian title track, an orchestral flurry of strings that dissolve into a grinding, half time war much that resembles Gesaffelstein on acid. “Event Horizon’, ‘Pathways’ and upcoming club single ‘Oscillator’ see the duo in more familiar territory, complex and thundering sci-fi dancefloor drum and bass; whilst ‘City of Dreams’ and ‘Cut Me’ demonstrate a lighter, more melodic touch. Soaring top lines link the epic singles ‘Ghost’, ‘White Flag’ and ‘Reborn’ whilst ‘Conquer The Galaxy’ takes future house into the cosmos.
Underpinned by meticulous production and presented as a seamless composition, ‘Paradise Lost’ represents a benchmark in the Delta Heavy journey.

One of the most exciting and diverse UK duos to take their sound transatlantic, Delta Heavy return after the viral success of their last single ‘Ghost’ with the next single from their forthcoming debut album. Whether it’s at 174 bpm or switching it down a notch for the kind of sub-filled, bouncy records which have made them so notorious across the club circuit, this next output from Delta Heavy perfectly merges two opposite ends of the spectrum. And this will stand as a resounding part of their discography; that’s both on the radio airwaves and from the speakers of venues globally.
“The British pair, consisting of Ben Hall and Simon James, have been impressing crowds of bassheads with their undeniable talent in producing dubstep, DnB, trap, and generally all things heavy.” – DJ Mag
“From their D&B roots they’ve since gone on to demonstrate their impeccable production skills across a multitude of genres from 110 to dubstep to electro.” – UKF
‘Punish my Love’ is pumped up by a chiselled future house groove, juxtaposing euphoric steel pans and an incessantly hooky vocal with playful, elastic bass line. On the flipside, we’re presented with a vastly different drum and bass mix recalling their trademark sound. Jungle influenced drums, snarling and switching bass lines and a rave piano melody put an aggressive, club-ready spin on the original.
