Earlier in the year Rene LaVice’s ‘Absolute Monster’ EP blew everyone away with its melting pot of different influences and styles, all blended together with Rene’s undeniable sense of experimentation. Having pushed the boundaries once some might be tempted to rest on their laurels and stick to a familiar pattern, but as his brand new single will show Rene LaVice is not that kind of producer.
‘All My Trials’ features the sublime vocal talents of Toronto-born Ivy Mairi. This track lives in a world where euphoric drum & bass doesn’t have to mean throwaway riffs and quickly forgotten formulas. Rather Rene brings beautiful music to the foreground, infusing Ivy’s luscious vocals and heart-tugging strings with classic elements of drum & bass, offering a timeless snapshot of feel good fast soul music for the modern dance floor. This tune will unquestionably become the soundtrack to some of the best nights out you’ll have this autumn.
‘Not Deep’ takes another turn for the experimental as Rene throws out the rulebook, blending genuinely different melodies with unique male vocals and a deluge of ideas that all somehow come together in perfect harmony. Backed up with a deadly drop that promises to have clubs across the globe churning with its undulating bass, this track is destined to create some serious carnage whenever it’s unleashed.
Anyone who instantly fell for Rene LaVice’s unique musical vision when the anthemic ‘Headlock’ hit the floors for the first time will love this single. Packed with fresh ideas and sounds, Rene’s latest Ram Records release is undoubtedly unique, but without losing itself in a sea of pomposity. This is an exciting producer making music his way, throwing out the rulebook but treading the line expertly enough to stay grounded.
