Volume 1 of ‘UNISON’ features an all-star cast of Drum & Bass artists. Our premiere today is ‘Invisible’ which is released as a single this Friday 18th December at 00:00 (midnight)! It comes already highly anticipated as you might expect with the calibre of artists involved in producing this amazing track. I’m talking about label boss Villem along with Hadley and featuring the vocal talents of 2 of the most coveted vocalists in the Drum & Bass scene and long time friends Riya and Collette Warren.
Villem is one of the most versatile artists in the Drum & Bass scene. He has released on almost all the major labels within the genre. His sound ranges from big bouncy jungle to twisted bass science to sublime liquid rolling bliss. His back catalogue covers so many different styles, he’s almost impossible to categorise.
With his first release in 2017 Essex based Hadley has quickly established himself as one of the producers to watch for the future. Since his first exposure to the scene, Hadley embarked on refining his sound and self-released his track ‘Talking’ which reached over 150k plays on Soundcloud – phenomenal for a self-release! He has since released on labels such as Skankandbass, Overview, Rebel Music, Vandal, Lifestyle, Nurtured Beatz and Context Audio.
Riya has over fifteen years of industry experience, two D&B Arena ‘Best Vocalist’ awards, a solo album and over eleven million plays on Spotify alone! , Riya – real name Laura Hill – is noted as ‘one of the most iconic female vocalists in the genre’ (UKF).
