Loadstar Announce New Single On Ram Records: ‘Diamonds’ (feat. Takura)
‘DIAMONDS’ (FEAT. TAKURA)
OUT THIS WEEK
Currently touring North America as part of the 25 Years Of Ram Records tour, Loadstar have dropped new single, ‘Diamonds’ (feat. Takura), the next track from the British drum & bass stars’ soon to be announced new album. A soaring, peak-time d&b anthem, Nick and Gavin have been roadtesting ‘Diamonds’ for most of this year in their sets, and based on the response so far expect this to become a firm festival favourite this season. This single also reunites them with vocalist, Takura, who, aside from featuring on tracks by Chase & Status, Sub Focus, Netsky, and Kano, last worked with Loadstar on ‘Refuse To Love’.
‘Diamonds’ follows recent single, ‘I Need The Night’; the lead single track was accompanied by ‘Guerilla’, and a storming house rework of ‘INTN’ from Dismantle. Heavy support on the package came from Radio 1, 1Xtra, Kiss, Beats, and beyond, with DJs including Target, Friction, Danny Howard, Annie Nightingale, Julie Adenuga, and many more.
Since the release of Nick and Gavin’s debut album, ‘Future Perfect’, Loadstar have solidified their reputation as one of Europe’s biggest drum & bass acts – their feet are planted firmly in the rave, even if their journey has, at times, taken them far beyond it. Having crossed over to daytime Radio 1 (without a big featured artist in sight) with ‘Future Perfect’, and with heavy specialist radio support, the pair were no longer the drum & bass world’s best kept secret. Already a major draw as DJs, with many a classic performance at Fabric and beyond, Loadstar’s debuts at Glastonbury, Pukklepop, Creamfields, Las Vegas’ EDC and SW4, amongst others, saw them become a quickly acclaimed live outfit.
2016 saw them continue to break new ground on the festival circuit and, while focusing on recording new album material, they released a slew of underground cuts including ‘Change The Channel’, ‘Encarta’, ‘Lifeline’, and ‘Red Rock’ for Ram. They added remixes for Stylo G and Jacob Plant to a discography that to date includes Rudimental, Noisia, Ed Sheeran, Breakage, Chase & Status and Wolfgang Gartner.
Worldwide festival shows and tour dates to be announced.
