Hot on the heels of his summer hit, ‘Don’t You Feel It’, drum ‘n’ bass heavyweight Sub Focus joins forces with London quartet Rudimental for their latest club banger, ‘Trouble’ featuring Chronixx andMaverick Sabre.
‘Trouble’ highlights Sub Focus and Rudimental’s ability to produce hits ready for dancefloors and festivals, with the track packing real energy from start to finish. Boasting the sublime vocal performances of Jamaican reggae artist Chronixx and UK vocalist Maverick Sabre.
Talking about the record Rudimental said, “We brought together some of our favourite artists from Reggae, DnB and Soul – this is what Rudimental is all about.” When Sub Focus was in the studio with Rudimental he says, “we were jamming out this idea, Chronnix happened to be in the UK on tour so he passed through the studio and just laid down this killer vocal. Think the track came out like a really nice mix of both of our styles.”
‘Trouble’ is sure to prove a massive hit with both Sub Focus and Rudimental’s loyal followings, and comes fresh off Rudimental’s Top 10 hit ‘Sun Comes Up’ featuring James Arthur, which has hit over 13 million Spotify streams and was met with critical acclaim.
‘Trouble’ adopts a darker tone than previous single, ‘Don’t You Feel It’ featuring Finnish breakthrough act ALMA. Heavily supported by BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac, Danny Howard, Target and Friction, the track achieved 2 million global Spotify Streams in a fortnight and is now edging towards 10 million Spotify Streams, gaining ‘Hottest Record’ status with Mistajam. ‘Don’t You Feel It’ also received the remix treatment this summer, with emerging producers 1991, salute, and Kideko crafting their own renditions of the crossover track.
Expanding on his new club-based chapter, Sub Focus has embarked on a string on dancefloor-ready tracks so far in 2017, releasing ‘Nobody Knows’, ‘Love Divine’ and ‘Lingua’ featuring the vocals of reggae artist Stylo G. The track holds the accolade of being the first ever record to top the Radio 1 Specialist Chart for two consecutive weeks. The UK producer also achieved great success earlier this year with a high-tempo remix of Major Lazer’s ‘Run Up.’
Currently in the midst of a hectic summer schedule where he’s captivating audiences with his energetic sets, Sub Focus is holding down a coveted Ibiza residency at Amnesia. The acclaimed DJ and producer is also gearing up for his eagerly-awaited return to Reading & Leeds Festival, where he’ll be bringing back his interactive live show for the August Bank Holiday weekend. Starting with Reading’s NME/Radio 1 stage on Friday 25th August, the UK producer will play the same stage at Leeds’ Bramham Parkvenue 24 hours later, on Saturday 26th August.
Not stopping there, he will also play SW4 this month, before heading over to the States for a relentless run of dates, including his return to New York’s Electric Zoo Festival in September.
