Championed by Annie Mac, Chase & Status, MistaJam, Sigma, and many more, DC Breaks are the next drum & bass duo tipped for huge crossover success. Released on RAM Records, ‘Breathe’ (feat. Dave Gibson) is the pair’s forthcoming single. Currently tearing up dancefloors via major club support from Andy C, High Contrast, Teebee, Danny Byrd, and Matrix & Future Bound, ‘Breathe’ will be released in December ahead of their new artist album due in 2016.
All the signs of DC Breaks impending breakthrough are there: a series of huge club singles (‘Faithless’, ‘If This Is Love’), sold out shows across the UK and Europe, with headline festival slots including Glastonbury’s Arcadia stage, an overflowing, packed out tent at Bestival alongside Hudson Mohawke, plus mainstage performances at EXIT, Melt!, Dour, SW4 and Tomorrowland.
DC Breaks’ remixes for the likes of Lana Del Rey, Tinie Tempah, Seinabo Sey, Lady Gaga, and Paloma Faith, have kept their (sought after) production hands in the mainstream, the flipside to having numerous Beatport genre No.1s and over 40 underground cuts to their name.
DC Breaks aka Dan Havers and Chris Page met and raved together at Edinburgh University, bonding over the Prodigy and the warm glow of a post-jungle era that had breathed new life into UK electronic music. After graduating and finding success North of the border, their first studio was housed in the basement of a Bristol city centre warehouse, a desolate location that doubled up as their home, initially without electricity or running water.
This dedication paid off and success started to show, with cuts such as the tough sci-fi sounds of ‘Halo’, ‘Romper’ and ‘Taken’ on Futurebound’s Viper imprint and the RAM sub-label Frequency. Once they graduated to RAM itself, with cuts such as ‘Shaman’ and last year’s battering ‘Lock-In’, they hit the drum & bass A-league. Before long it wasn’t just the drum & bass scene paying attention. DC Breaks tunes made it onto BBC Radio via Zane Lowe, Mistajam and Annie Mac.
Remixes for ‘Breathe’ (feat. Dave Gibson) come from Hot Sauce, Vato Gonzales and Adam F, plus an exclusive DC Breaks Dirty Mix
