Prominent dance music advocate Danny Howard has revealed his latest EP ‘Work That / Holla’. The two-track collection sees Danny release on Shadow Child & Kry Wolf’s Food imprint for the first time.
Opening with ‘Work That’, Danny pushes his talented production skills as the track fills with reverberating vocals and hard-hitting bass – creating a four-to-the-floor rhythm.
Completing the EP, ‘Holla’ is driven by hefty low-end and looping samples before dropping into waves of crashing high-hats. The track echoes the current appetite for big-room sounds in clubs across the world and is released just in time for the peak of Ibiza season.
‘The EP itself is a bit of a throwback and ‘Holla’ in particular was inspired by the 90s illegal warehouse rave scene. It was my older brother who introduced me to electronic music with old tape packs of sets recorded at these events so for the first in lots of new music coming from me, I wanted to kick off with a sound that represents where it all started.’ – Danny Howard
