Off the back of 2020’s ‘Alchemy‘, which peaked at #1 Most Played on triple j, Zeds Dead welcome back Blanke for D&B weapon ‘Breathe’ via their Deadbeats imprint.
The first single from his forthcoming ÆON:ONE EP, set to drop in early 2022, ‘Breathe’ is a slick D&B heater with precision drum work, electric synth patterns and, for the first time, features powerful vocals from Blanke himself.
A new outlet for D&B under the Blanke project, whether it be the live show ÆON:MODE or the upcoming ÆON EP that ‘Breathe’ is part of, D&B is built into Blanke’s DNA and is an exciting part of his project’s future.
On the release, Blanke says: “I’m proud to present ‘Breathe’ as the first instalment of the ÆON story. D&B has been an integral part of my own musical journey from a young age and to be able to express it here in this project is an exciting step. It’s also the first time I’m featuring my own vocals, which is both exciting and daunting!”
The fresh direction also follows huge achievements that have placed Blanke firmly on the map including collabs like ‘Mixed Signals‘ with REZZ (4M+ streams), ‘Gorgeous‘ with Illenium and Bipolar Sunshine, which landed #2 on Billboard Dance Chart, as well as supporting Illenium and Black Tiger Sex Machine on tour.
Recently returning to the US from his hometown of Canberra, Blanke is back on the road for his own headline tour playing festivals like Lost Lands, EDC Las Vegas and Starbase, as well as playing the main support for Sullivan King on his Loud & Reckless tour over North America. With the world opening its doors once more, Blanke’s ‘Breathe’ is destined to be a crowd pleaser where his new project will come to life.
