Renegade Riddims: Weissach

Share

Paul Sawyer and Simon Sinfield, renowned figures in the music industry, have made their mark with their progressive house releases on esteemed labels. Now, they venture into the realm of Drum & Bass with their exciting new alias, Weissach.

Paul and Simon have established themselves through their impressive accomplishments, including two six-month residencies on BBC Radio 1 and a special show on the station to kick off 2023. With multiple appearances on BBC Music Introducing and a global touring experience, they also co-manage Krafted Music, a label that has been thriving for over a decade with a diverse range of electronic music releases.

Ana Be

In their latest endeavour, Weissach collaborates with the talented vocalist Ana Be on their single ‘Fly’, as they delve into the world of Liquid Drum & Bass. Ana Be emerged onto the music scene in the summer of 2022 with her captivating release ‘Same Old Stoy’, receiving acclaim and support from tastemakers on BBC Radio 1 and BBC Music Introducing. She followed up with ‘Never Let You Go’ and ‘To The Sunrise’ on the Chillout Dreams imprint, and closed the year with the groundbreaking track ‘Still Breathing’ alongside Rolipso and LUNIQ, which garnered over 250,000 streams on Spotify. These early successes demonstrate her crossover potential even in the nascent stages of her musical career.

The collaboration between Weissach and Ana Be not only showcases their individual talents but also solidifies their positions in the vast dance music landscape, particularly in the realm of Drum & Bass. It is an achievement that further enriches Weissach’s already impressive musical history. Their experience and expertise shine through in the captivating sounds of ‘Fly’, complementing Ana Be’s rising accolades.

The duo had the honour of joining Mollie Collins on her D&B show on Kiss FM in May 2023, where they received tremendous support for their debut release across various media outlets. This recognition speaks volumes about the impact of their music and sets the stage for even greater accomplishments in the future.

Now, the prolific duo join us on our Renegade Riddims series with a beautifully curated Liquid Drum & Bass music ready for the Summer! The mix features music from the likes of themselves, Motiv, Alibi, Hugh Hardie, Artino, Leniz and loads more!

Sum up this mix in 10 words…

We feel that we can sum this one up in three words – Classy / journey / dreamy

What’s your personal favourite track on it?

‘No Return’ by Painted Skies is such a classy track, we just love the style of this track and worked perfect before our track ‘Fly’.

What’s the special ingredient in this mix?

We’ve included our debut release ‘Fly’ in the mix that got supported on BBC Music Introducing 5 times and also featured on Mollie Collins Kiss FM show recently.

Tell us about your next EP?

We have a new release called ‘I Wonder Why’ that features Ana Be again on vocals to follow up ‘Fly’. We’re just waiting on a remix to complete the release and it should be scheduled very soon.

What have you got coming up?

We have a live stream for Porsche this week on Twitch and we’re hosting an after party in Bournemouth on 15th July which is already nearly sold out at a club called Canvas, can’t wait!

We’re also back on BBC Radio 1 in August, so watch this space.

When was the last time you actually raved?

We played a six hour set for Porsche last weekend at their Porsche Festival celebrating 75 Years of the brand. Was such a great event. Not your usual rave, but we certainly gave a lesson in music to everyone that attended.

And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?
