Signed by Damian Lazarus to Crosstown Rebels in 2011, the dynamic duo Walker & Royce have been steadily climbing the deep home ranks with their skills to create exterior of the field materials, dedication to pushing musical boundaries, and fill a room with booty-clapping beats. Samuel Walker and Gavin Royce return right now with Our bodies Do The Speaking, a two-track launch on Dirtybird Information that represents the duo’s first solo launch on the imprint since their standout 2017 album, Self Assist.
These tracks are enormous, enormous A-sides. – Claude Von Stroke
Our bodies Do The Speaking is being promoted as a “double A-sider,” with “each of its tracks designed for peak time play.” Double-A-sided singles don’t have any overarching title. Normally, you’ll be able to’t say for sure whether or not the discharge was meant to be selling one monitor over the others. But, in relation to this new Walker and Royce EP, its title monitor has seen considerably extra play since being dropped ultimately yr’s Dirtybird Campout. “Our bodies Do The Speaking” has been performed by at the least one DJ at each competition I’ve attended this yr. Papa Claude dropped the monitor throughout his cosmicMEADOW set at EDC, it has seen plenty of love from legendary Radio 1 presenter Pete Tong, and has been added to podcast playlists by each Jauz and Valentino Kahn. Beginning off on a mellow notice earlier than synth traces and lo-fi textures take the monitor into its pounding percussion, “Our bodies Do The Speaking” is a banger.
Nevertheless, having heard the title monitor so many instances over the previous yr I discovered myself enjoying the EP’s second monitor, “Uh Oh,” extra usually than its better-known brother. With persistently paced beats and funky analog buildups to maintain the monitor from being monotonous, “Uh Oh” is a groover that’s very nice to have enjoying within the background when it’s essential to get issues accomplished. So I assume you may say this EP has each a Pageant A-Aspect and an At-Dwelling A-Aspect.
Test it out beneath, out now by way of Dirtybird!
