“Raised Vibrations feat. Brint Story / Yadava Remix” is the new release from producer, DJ and broken beat revivalist WheelUP aka West London’s Danny Wheeler. Linking with Alabamian rapper Brint Story, “Raised Vibrations” showcases a different sonic side to the producer, stripping bare the percussive backbone of the track, leaving Brint’s alt-R&B vocals to “take the wheel”. While Mancunian producer, NTS resident and So Flute co-founder Yadava catalyzes the tune onto the dancefloor with a jazzy primed remix.
“Raised Vibrations was something completely different stylistically for me, a rapper on a track with no drums… Working with Brint Story is super fun, we met in the Deep South of the US, through my cousin and I love his positive vibe and his style of rapping… combining Bruk West London Sound with an American rapper just made sense, it was not a plan to be different just a vibe that came naturally from my heart” Danny explains.
“Raised Vibrations feat. Brint Story / Yadava Remix” is the latest instalment from WheelUP’s debut album ‘Good Love’ a record that featured the likes of Bembe Segue, Abacus (Pola & Bryson) and label-mate Tiawa. ‘Good Love’ was heavily praised for its resurgent broken beat sound by the likes of Gilles Peterson (BBC 6Music), Jamz Supernova (BBC 1Xtra), A-Trak (Fools Gold), Dave 1 (Chromeo), Benji B (BBC Radio 1), Bonobo, Ben UFO, Emma Jean-Thackray, Laurent Garnier and many more.
