Burn Down – Ian Halsall

I’m always excited when new music gets sent to DAAHQ. Not all of it is good, but thankfully most is. This most definitely is.

I’m a drum n’ bass head. Have been since I got a cassette of Goldie’s Timeless passed to me at school in about 1996. I was up to my ears in Oasis at that point (wasn’t everybody?) – the breaks on that blew my mind apart. I’ve got with other styles over the years, but DnB remains very much my beat.

Burn Down is a tight, focused tune. In a post Rudimental climate, this is a good thing. Emma Boudin’s silky smooth vocal slides down the beats perfectly; she has a fantastic DnB voice. Reminded me of Onallee from Reprazent, which is a very good thing in my book.

The breaks are razor sharp and minimal. I’m an old skool breaks guy (Amen, Brother!) but this approach suits this track. Lets it breath. Good work indeed.

So here it is. Check it for yourself. Good stuff indeed…

Bad Rabbits – Sextape (Deftones Cover)

You knew we were gonna love this, right?

Bad Rabbits make some hot hot music. Wikipedia calls it Post-R&B. We call it f’cking sexual. Fredua Boakye’s voice does magical things. More please. Mmmmmmmm.

There’s a ton of these wild covers, but this our fave (so far).

DAA is run by me, Kris Halpin. I'm a music fan first, it defines me. That's why I became a producer. DAA is my music production company and record label; a labour of love to bring you the music that I love most... the music I work on.

If you have something life-changing I should hear, please let me know.
