After a small break from releases on his co-run record label, “This Ain’t Bristol”, Billy Kenny’s homecoming release was well worth the wait. Out today on Beatport, the “RON DAT” EP is a much-needed refreshing addition to the growingly repetitive bass driven house realm.
Ron Dat is filled with surprises and power. Impeccably clean, yet powerful basslines push forward an infectious melody followed by a fresh breakdown. Driven by modulation, the acidic break gives a story arc to a this bass-fueled track – a genre usually filled with repetitive and almost stale melodies.
Work Me is not to be confused with Billy’s other powerhouse track, “Work” which really put him on the map. “Work Me” is almost a follow-up to that infamous B-Side. Equally as funky and memorable, “Work Me” is sure to become a staple in sets across genres and festivals this summer. Reminiscent of UK Garage beats that filled parties across England, Billy blends the best of both worlds in this genre-bending track.
Sascha Robotti’s remix of the track isn’t a complete rework, but rather highlights and pushes to the top parts of the original track. Slightly darker, the remix has a more warehouse feel to it.
Grab a copy of the release on Beatport and look out for Billy on the road this summer.
