Introducing a timely unveiling and exhilarating addition to the Warner Records roster, showcasing the remarkable vocals of A Little Sound. Emerging sensation Waypoint proudly presents the release of ‘You’re Not Alone’. This track signifies more than just an artist with soaring aspirations; it embodies the enduring potency and potential of the Drum & Bass genre.
At its core, ‘You’re Not Alone’ originates from Waypoint’s initial bootleg rendition, which first found a home on SoundCloud before rapidly gaining traction in clubs and on the airwaves, with support from Nia Archives during her BBC Radio 1 Residency.
Mere months after an impressive debut single on RAM Records, and a ground-shaking remix for chart-topping artists Kleu, Waypoint has swiftly transformed from a newcomer on the scene to a bona fide producer on the rise. He has established a strong reputation for infusing positive vibes, drawing the admiration of both fans and fellow DJs. Through glimpses of reverence, meticulous production, and unwavering enthusiasm, Waypoint emerges as an artist to watch. Notably, the endorsement from Nia Archives and Charlie Tee on the radio is contributing to the nurturing of a new generation’s connection to the genre’s legacy.
Speeding onto the airwaves, ‘You’re Not Alone’ encapsulates the beloved and signature dynamic elements of Drum & Bass, enhanced by the defining characteristics of the mid-90s dance euphoria. It’s a captivating and tasteful homage to the classics, crafted by a burgeoning producer dedicated to blending timeless Drum & Bass beats with an irresistibly enduring vocal.
Fresh from securing the title of Best Vocalist at last year’s Drum&BassArena Awards, A Little Sound has already left her mark with vocals that have graced some of D&B’s most monumental anthems in recent years. From ‘Back In Time’ with Kanine to ‘Lakota’ with Technimatic, ‘Rum & Lime’ with DJ Gaw and Selecta J-Man, and her latest remix of Rudimental, Charlotte Plank, and Vibe Chemistry‘s ‘Dancing is Healing’.
The fluid rhythms within ‘You’re Not Alone’ encompass both frenetic energy and graceful elegance, drawing equally from the genre’s nostalgic party-friendly vibes and textured layers of yesteryears. The track harmoniously blends dancefloor respect and unity, encapsulating much of the emotional depth that characterized British dance music during the ’90s. The track dropped back in June, grab a copy here!

That’s such a hard question! Probably my unreleased remix of ‘The Cure & The Cause’ with Charlotte Plank. Such a banger!
What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
Switching jungle choppage into naughty jumpup/roller blends. Hard to execute but deadly when done right!

My next EP will be a summary of several factors from the last year or so: a constant, relentless grind, incredible relationships I’ve made, a variety of worldwide musical inspirations, all tied together by the vision I have for my music.
