‘Feel The Vibe’ marks Walker & Royce’s anticipated return to Dirtybird following last year’s collaborative Enthusiasm EP with Claude VonStroke. Dangerously dark and thrillingly off-kilter, ‘Feel The Vibe’ is a frisky 5-minute house cut overflowing with glitchy melodies and slinky basslines. Attention-grabbing from start to finish, Walker & Royce have topped off their dancefloor-ready discography with another energetic heater. A flock favorite previewed throughout Claude VonStroke’s ‘Your Dad Plays Great Music Tour’, ‘Feel The Vibe’ arrives ahead of Walker & Royce’s appearance at Holy Ship! Wrecked and headline ‘Just What The World Needs Tour’, set to kick off in January 2023.
Regarding the track, Walker & Royce said, “We are so excited to finally release ‘Feel The Vibe’. It’s been a staple of our sets and something we can always rely on to get people moving no matter what time of night.”
Introduced by way of New York City’s early-aughts dance music scene, Sam Walker and Gavin Royce first teamed up for a remix in 2011. The duo found early success on tastemaker labels like Crosstown Rebels, OFF Recordings, and Moda Black, scoring an Essential New Tune nod from Pete Tong with 2014’s “Sister.” The indie dance and deep house sounds that informed Walker & Royce’s earliest work soon gave way to something different. Quirky accents and bouncy synths, previously deeper in the mix, leapt to the forefront, backed by a propulsive new energy. The success of their November 2015 “Bright Lights” remix was a clear indication that they were onto something.
In October 2017, Walker & Royce released their debut album Self Help on Dirtybird, which both showcased and expanded upon their now-signature sound. The guys enlisted numerous vocalists, including Green Velvet, Dances With White Girls, and Sophiegrophy, to make Self Help feel like a packed house party while leaving no doubt about who was hosting. Self Help was followed by further experimentation and growth. Walker & Royce have collaborated with Claude Vonstroke, Ardalan, Chris Lake and VNSSA, remixed Channel Tres, LP Giobbi, The Knocks, Justin Jay, Gorgon City, Mindchatter; and put out music on Relief, Black Book, HotBOi Records and more. Their Rave Grave EP was the inaugural release on Diplo’s house-focused imprint Higher Ground. Continuing to push boundaries, they’ve launched their own label Rules Don’t Apply Records.
Walker & Royce invite fans to join them for an intoxicating experience and stream ‘Feel The Vibe’.
