Animals 04:45


Walker & Royce have defined their career with three simple words: Rules Don’t Apply. This ethos is reflected in their genre-straddling studio output, and in their eponymous radio show, which puts other risk takers on display. Now, Walker & Royce take Rules Don’t Apply to new heights with its new record label. The Splits series offers two singles from two artists that are paired and released as an EP. A nod to DIY punk bands releasing split 7-inch records, RDA aims to keep that collaborative spirit alive.

On "Animals", Walker & Royce and Ardalan form like Voltron to deliver a primal banger lathered with growls, thick lasers and searing synth licks. The track kicks off with an escalating progression, driven by a reverberating siren and nuanced whistles. “Animals” is more sample-driven than typical W&R releases, influenced by prodigal production up-and-comer, Ardalan. The collaboration embeds the feeling house lovers are eager to explore in the late hours - energizing listeners and dance floors to keep pushing.

On "When Will I See You", we witness yet another perfectly balanced collaboration from VNSSA & Lenny Kiser. Their memorable & iconic bass line is brilliantly complimented by Neon Super Black's vocals. The track charms with melodic elements and arps, but channels a harder, driving energy.
