British drum & bass legend Andy C signs debut Atlantic Records single ‘Heartbeat Loud’
If drum & bass had a system based on loyalty and industry contribution, Andy C would have reached platinum tier some ten years ago. With more lasting contributions to the genre than the majority of his peers collected, the master of RAM has signed an inaugural single with Atlantic Records. Aligning the man behind the ‘double drop’ with the less obvious major label partner, “Heartbeat Loud” marks a notable first for a producer who has nurtured more crossover artists and impressive industry firsts than anyone else in the game.
The track marks a bout of accessible drum & bass at the highest caliber, making a respectful nod to the consistent energy and versatility this long-serving producer has mustered whilst using Fiora’s supple vocals to keep its universal appeal in close check. The fact that major labels are still flocking to certain members of the drum & bass family says everything you need to know about the once underdog sound in 2014, but for an artist of Andy C’s caliber its yet further proof of the relevance the iconic talent still boasts on dance floors and speakers across the continents.
