Built for the rave and forthcoming on Ram Records, Andy C’s ‘What Bass’ has been roadtested during his 13 week XOYO residency, and was given its first radio play on his Beats 1 show on Friday night. This dancefloor-ready cut is the first new music from Andy C since 2016’s ‘New Era’, and will precede a new single for Atlantic Records later this year.

With over 40 awards to date, Andy C’s career has been nothing short of a phenomenon. He’s sold-out Alexandra Palace and Brixton Academy with his own solo shows, played headline slots at the world’s greatest festivals including Creamfields, Glastonbury, EDC, and SW4, and released a string of phenomenal crossover anthems like ‘Heartbeat Loud’ and club tracks like ‘New Era’. He’s also the go-to remixer for the likes of Major Lazer, Sigala, London Grammar and beyond, and the d&b figure recently chosen to host the first drum & bass radio show on Apple Music’s Beats 1, broadcast to over 100 countries.

As the owner and figurehead for Ram Records, which celebrates 25 years in 2017, Andy’s nurtured and developed huge headline artists such as Chase & Status, Wilkinson and Sub Focus, turning it into one of the world’s most respected independent operations across recordings and now festivals like EDC Las Vegas, Creamfields, and SW4 where Ram have hosted their own arenas and stages.

Andy’s main signature motif as a DJ is that he’s guaranteed to be packing tracks that no other DJ has. Hunting, digging, searching and signing: he is constantly immersed in new music. Not only does this ensure a wholly unique experience when you see him live, but it also gives Ram Records a front row seat when it comes to spotting new artists… As the likes of Loadstar, Wilkinson, Calyx & TeeBee, Frankee, Delta Heavy, Culture Shock, DC Breaks, Hamilton, Mind Vortex, Chords and many more can happily confirm.

On 31 March, Andy will complete his 13 week residency run at XOYO. The first d&b artist chosen by the renowned London club, tickets for his entire residency sold out far in advance. The Friday night run has allowed Andy to nurture a weekly crowd on a par with his legendary sets at The End, bringing together older heads and d&b’s new converts together under one roof.

Summer 2017 festival dates include Lovebox, Let it Roll festival, Snowbombing, Lost & Found, Wild Life, Parklife, Dour Festival, Nu Forms, Boardmasters, Dreambeach, Innovation in the Sun, Tomorrowland, Reading Festival, Leeds Festival, Bestival, Middlelands and many more to be announced.

Championed by Annie Mac, Chase & Status, MistaJam, Sigma, and many more, DC Breaks are the next drum & bass duo tipped for huge crossover success. Released on RAM Records, ‘Breathe’ (feat. Dave Gibson) is the pair’s forthcoming single. Currently tearing up dancefloors via major club support from Andy C, High Contrast, Teebee, Danny Byrd, and Matrix & Future Bound, ‘Breathe’ will be released in December ahead of their new artist album due in 2016.

All the signs of DC Breaks impending breakthrough are there: a series of huge club singles (‘Faithless’, ‘If This Is Love’), sold out shows across the UK and Europe, with headline festival slots including Glastonbury’s Arcadia stage, an overflowing, packed out tent at Bestival alongside Hudson Mohawke, plus mainstage performances at EXIT, Melt!, Dour, SW4 and Tomorrowland.

DC Breaks’ remixes for the likes of Lana Del Rey, Tinie Tempah, Seinabo Sey, Lady Gaga, and Paloma Faith, have kept their (sought after) production hands in the mainstream, the flipside to having numerous Beatport genre No.1s and over 40 underground cuts to their name.

DC Breaks aka Dan Havers and Chris Page met and raved together at Edinburgh University, bonding over the Prodigy and the warm glow of a post-jungle era that had breathed new life into UK electronic music. After graduating and finding success North of the border, their first studio was housed in the basement of a Bristol city centre warehouse, a desolate location that doubled up as their home, initially without electricity or running water.

This dedication paid off and success started to show, with cuts such as the tough sci-fi sounds of ‘Halo’, ‘Romper’ and ‘Taken’ on Futurebound’s Viper imprint and the RAM sub-label Frequency. Once they graduated to RAM itself, with cuts such as ‘Shaman’ and last year’s battering ‘Lock-In’, they hit the drum & bass A-league. Before long it wasn’t just the drum & bass scene paying attention. DC Breaks tunes made it onto BBC Radio via Zane Lowe, Mistajam and Annie Mac.
