After a spectacularly successful intro to the scene which saw Weiss (pronounced 'Vice') being championed by the likes of Groove Armada, Loco Dice, Green Velvet, Kenny Dope, Pete Tong & more, the hit single 'My Sister' rotating on BBC Radio 1, whilst staying strong in the Beatport top ten chart for over four months, and countless gigs all over Europe, it was plain to see that Weiss was here to stay.

Following this lead, Weiss has risen to even greater heights, with his releases inspiring support from the most respected & freshest names in the industry, including Gorgon City, Shadow Child, Shiba San, Claptone, Hot Since 82, Claude VonStroke, Tensnake, Bontan and more.
'Guitar Man' stormed up the Beatport charts and remained an essential in clubs for months after its release; whilst Pete Tong continues to champion Weiss' remix of Green Velvet & Riva Starr's 'Robots'. The 'Weiss City' series have been picks of the summer, with tracks like 'I Feel Better' proving to be fan favourites at the likes of We Are FSTVL. Similarly, his remixes of MK's iconic 'Always', Tube & Berger's soulful 'Come On Now (Set It Off)' and Deadmau5's anthemic 'Raise Your weapon' have set the industry alight with accolades from all corners of the scene.
With the new year comes an even stronger sound, 'Our Love' follows on from where 'I Believe' left off, a driving onslaught of Jackin' beats with that irrepressible Weiss bass rumbling through, premiered by Pete Tong on Radio 1 with a frenzy of hype around its release.

Trends in dance music will always come and go, and during a peak in the deep synth sound Weiss is an ambassador for real House music, championing the original Jackin' Chicago house sound, and with a string of exciting projects, collaborations and hotly tipped releases on their way, expect nothing but the hottest and most underground cuts from this rising star…

Walker & Royce
"Walker & Royce have been producing their emotive, subdued and groove-heavy deep house since 2011 -- but almost from the start, they were touted as future stars. Now it's official, thanks to a certain UK tastemaker -- not to mention a string of stellar productions and remixes." - XLR8R

"Walker & Royce" started when Sam and Gavin, having known each other in and out of the dance scene for years, finally began working together in 2011. As things usually go, it was a bit of luck that got them off the ground: Crosstown Rebels boss Damian Lazarus noticed one of their very first releases, a remix of SAARID's "Future Lately," on Nervous Records. The result was the Crosstown Rebels EP "You're Not Welcome" and with that, Walker & Royce was launched into the dance music spotlight.

Around the same time, Walker & Royce released a track on OFF Recordings that went on to become a house anthem: "Connected." The song became a mainstay in Solomun's performances and with that set the stage for a diverse range of sounds from the pair. Their EP on Moda Black entitled "Sister" was picked by Pete Tong as his Essential New Tune, and their chart toping remix of Baunz' "Out the Window" on Pets Recordings garnered support from many of the biggest artists in electronic music. Most recently the duo has joined the ranks on Claude Vonstroke's seminal Dirtybird Records with the release of the "Boy" EP and "Hit Dem Draws" and Green Velvet's legendary Relief Records with their chart toping release "Peep This Cat," and "3 4 Shake It" with fellow Dirtybird artist Will Clarke.

Having solidified their unique sound, you will hear Walker & Royce's music in many of the top DJ's from around the world! From Sasha to Adam Beyer, Maceo Plex to Gorgon City and Eats Everything to Loco Dice, they continue to break down the genre barriers and turn heads....
