Loadstar ★ I Need The Night / Guerilla Ram Records 🇬🇧
I hear it all the time. “Millennials are such hipsters!” If you aren’t harkening back to the past you aren’t trending. Vinyl is coming back, people are wearing Buddy Holly glasses without knowing who Buddy Holly is, and everything done in the last few years in the music scene has to have some kind of dance beat as if the disco era is trying to come back from the grave in the form of a misunderstood teenager looking for that perfect rave. The truth is that so much music sounds the same and putting a great beat to it is hit-and-miss on hiding the mediocrity that we have been holding onto for the last ten or so years. Thankfully the scene does have enough fresh faces to bring us some hope.
The millennial heartbeat can be heard within the new Loadstar album soon to come out of RAM records. “I Need the Night” has that a nostalgic feel of 90s techno divided into three distinct sounds: the near-whisper vocals reverberating across beautiful sound mixing of electronica, the quick rush of the drums, and the ever-present heartbeat of the millennials reminding those who are both new and original fans that Loadstar is back and better than ever. We are the night, we are the future, and this is our heartbeat.

Loadstar’s ‘I Need The Night’ is the British drum & bass stars’ first single from their forthcoming new album, also entitled ‘I Need The Night’. The single is accompanied by a second album track, ‘Guerrilla’; both are available on all streaming services and DSPs from 19 January via Ram Records/BMG. ‘I Need The Night’ is a soaring, epic statement of intent from Loadstar, the perfect opening salvo in a year that will see them release their eagerly awaited second album (on 28th April), alongside further singles (to be announced). The lead single track is released alongside ‘Guerilla’, a no-nonsense, straight to the heart of the dancefloor cut that shows Loadstar’s feet are still planted firmly in the rave, even if their journey has, at times, taken them far beyond itSince the release of Nick and Gavin’s debut album, ‘Future Perfect’, Loadstar have solidified their reputation as one of Europe’s biggest drum & bass acts. Having crossed over to daytime Radio 1 (without a big featured artist in sight), and with heavy specialist radio support, the pair were no longer the drum & bass world’s best kept secret. Already a major draw as DJs, with many a classic performance at Fabric and beyond, Loadstar’s debuts at Glastonbury, Pukklepop, Creamfields, Las Vegas’ EDC and SW4, amongst others, saw them become a quickly acclaimed live outfit.2016 saw them continue to break new ground on the festival circuit and, while focusing on recording ‘I Need The Night’ (album), they released a slew of underground cuts including ‘Change The Channel’, ‘Encarta’, ‘Lifeline’, and ‘Red Rock’ for Ram. They added remixes for Stylo G and Jacob Plant to a discography that to date includes Rudimental, Noisia, Ed Sheeran, Breakage, Chase & Status and Wolfgang Gartner.Further details and the full tracklist for ‘I Need The Night’ (album) will be released soon. Worldwide festival shows and tour dates to be announced.
