DT606 – Blonde
Blonde are an English deep house production duo from Bristol, consisting of Jacob Manson and Adam Englefield.
They premiered the track “It’s You” via Englefield’s dance music YouTube channel Eton Messy in July 2013. In May 2014, Blonde released their debut single “Foolish”, which features vocals from Ryan Ashley. In 2016 they collaborated with returning record producer and star to the music industry Craig David on the song “Nothing Like This”. It was part of David’s collaborative period which included artists such as Big Narstie, Katy B, and Kaytranada and is also a single off of his sixth studio album, entitled Following My Intuition. They also co-wrote the Rudimental and Ed Sheeran song Lay It All on Me (song) with Johnny Harris and James Newman. The song was originally conceived in a session between Blonde, Harris, and Newman before being pitched to Rudimental. Ed Sheeran was later brought in on the track and re-wrote the break of the song.
Recently, Englefield has launched the label Night Beast Records. They’ve enjoyed a flying start with releases from the likes of Endor, Trutopia, Biscits, Norwood & Hill and more, have enjoyed key support from heavy-hitters at radio and in clubland. Night Beast is a name to watch over the next 12 months and this party is the ideal way to experience its signature sounds. They are teaming up with our friends over at Perfect Havoc records on Friday 24th August at Dalston Roof Park with Endor, Oliver Nelson, Tobtok, Eat More Cake, Linier, Adam Griffin and of course Blonde – for more information head to Facebook.
