Drumsound & Bassline Smith – or, if you prefer, East Midlands boys Andy Wright, Ben Wiggett and Simon “Bassline” Smith – are optimists. After many years working hard in underground music, they’re achieving unprecedented commercial success, and after two and a half years of work, they are ready to release their album ‘Wall Of Sound‘.
The album comes straight of the back recent summer smash ‘One In A Million’ ft. Fleur reached the BBC Radio 1 B-list enjoying support from Annie Mac, Zane Lowe, B.Traits and Skream & Benga.
‘Wall of Sound’ is representative of the new world of club music. Although drum’ n’ bass in tempo, it’s completely shot through with the buzz and dynamics of modern electro and dubstep – a style whose half-step rhythms have been rewriting the rules of modern day dance music. But more than that, it’s got pop, it’s got soul, it’s got indie rock, it’s got fully-formed songs… it’s got the whole kaleidoscope you’ll hear in clubs. In the words of Drumsound & Bassline Smith this album is for “the generation who grew up listening to Annie Mac, who are happy to have all kinds of genres brought together in one place”.
