Drum & bass pioneer and Hospital Record’s crown jewel Danny Byrd is back! He’s set 2018 ablaze with monolith anthems ‘Devil’s Drop’, ‘Salute’ ft MC GQ and ‘Hold Up The Crown’ ft Ky Lenz, now he proudly presents his first album in five years, ‘Atomic Funk’.
A 15-track funk-fuelled compendium of rolling dancefloor-fillers that tributes to the jungle foundation moulding his early discography. Collaborations with the likes of I-Kay, Maduk, Ownglow, Times x Two and MC GQ, fuse with powerful doses of Danny’s hip-hop and R&B infused 174BPM productions. ‘Atomic Funk’ is undoubtedly Mr Byrd’s finest work to date and includes one of the biggest future D+B anthems ‘Holy Star’ that’s brought to life with vocal delights from MC Foxy.
‘Just A Step Away’ (ft. Ownglow) has become a silver bullet for the Byrd, taking a spotlight in his DJ sets as his finishing move. With its gorgeous vocals, volatile rave synths and humming sub-bass, it’s not hard to see why. However, that’s far from the only weapon in this legend’s locker. ‘Roll The Drums’ is a certified sub shaker bringing a fierce bassline and thundering percussion, plus there’s raw jungle madness with ‘In The Meantime’ (ft. Hannah Symons).
With fifteen incredible tracks from Hospital Records’ longest standing signing, ‘Atomic Funk’ is Danny Byrd at his best. Crafted for the dancefloor and feel-good from start to finish, a must-have for any true Hospital fan.
