Deploy set to drop new track ‘Whatever You Need’
In recent years, the Data Transmission-featured artist has landed releases on labels such as Spearhead, Dance Concept, and Dread Recordings by constructing a niche sound for himself which touches on jungle, liquid, dancefloor, and rollers.
The track opens with a cinematic orchestral chord progression, soulful vocals, and a warm and enthralling synth pluck. Not long after, a thunderous reese bass interrupts the serenity of the introduction with a fake-out drop before the track continues on a path defined by rough and ready jungle drums paired with an emotional and melodic bassline.
Deploy’s interest in dance music began by swapping early 90s rave tapes between friends at school. Fascinated by the different styles layered over fast breakbeats he followed its transformation into Jungle and Drum and Bass. Inspired by the DJs while raving at The Sanctuary, Milton Keynes, he bought his first sampler and record decks in order to learn production and mixing.
While studying Music Technology at the University of Derby he collaborated with musicians and worked on remixes for bands. It was at this time that he relentlessly hounded Nicky Blackmarket, sending him tunes and receiving feedback and much-needed encouragement. This led to Nicky playing his track ‘Liquid Shadows’ at Random Concept in Germany 2011 and passing his music onto Ray Keith. Since then Ray Keith, along with Bladerunner, has spent time guiding Deploy on his production, supporting his music in clubs and on radio shows.
