Special Feature: Chromatic


Continuing to champion rising talent across the electronic music spectrum, René LaVice welcomes Drum & Bass duo Chromatic to the Device family with colossal banger ‘Switcher’, marking their debut on the tastemaker label. 

The duo who, also go by the names Leon and Joe, emerged on the scene in 2010. The Bristol-based duo have been making a name for themselves with releases on seminal labels like Playaz, Innerground, V Recordings, Crucast, CIA, Commercial Suicide, Fokuz, Formation Records, Utopia Music, Lossless Music and more.

Not restricted to one style of D&B, the pair have honed and demonstrated a versatile sound that’s seen them rack up plays on the likes of BBC Radio 1 and Kiss FM whilst earning support from the some of the most respected selectors on the scene including Roni Size, DJ Hype, DJ Marky, LTJ Bukem, Kanine, London Elektricity and more. 


Their fresh approach and genre bending style has also landed them notable remix opportunities for the likes of DJ Fresh, MC $pyda and E-Z Rollers. The pair’s original collab track ‘Sunrise’, produced for Bru-C’s ‘Original Sounds’ album, has achieved nearly 2 million Spotify plays, while their unofficial remix of Pharoahe Monch’s ‘Simon Says’ continues to be a secret weapon amongst countless DJ sets.

Following on from ‘Race Against Time / Repro’ on V Recording’s sub-label Chronic earlier this year, new single ‘Switcher’ marks their second release of 2020 on René LaVice’s Device label. Debuting on the label with a bang, ‘Switcher’ is a monstrous hair raiser, boasting thrilling vibrations that surge into weighty wobbles and distinct pulses sure to tear up speakers globally. ‘Switcher’ is out now via Device and available to buy from here!
