Video: Danny Byrd (ft. Netsky) – Tonight

by MV

Nice little collaboration between two DnB producers from opposite ends of Hospital Records’ lifespan (Byrd has been around practically since the start, Netsky burst onto the scene last year with stuff like the amazing Eyes Closed.)

Some great sounds on this one, and Netsky’s spaceship-about-to-take-off production is very much in evidence. Scattered across the track though are hints of Discovery-era Daft Punk. Most obviously in the vocals (especially the breakdown 2/3rds of the way through), but also the little flickers of synth-guitar throughout. Probably a bit Marmite to start with, but it sounds pretty massive to me.

Wonderfully mismatched (yet at the same time perfectly matched) Granny/Bingo-centric video too.
