Not many acts can say that their debut release was paired with a camera strapped to a baby’s head, then filmed and shown on prime time US TV. But that’s exactly what happened when Walking Def’s first single, the bass-heavy ‘Running All My Life‘, was picked up by GoPro for their 2013 Super Bowl advert which has now clocked up over a million views on YouTube. Now fast forward to the present as their next effort is this amazing 4 track EP “Love To Give” which showcases Walking Def’s studio versatility and innate musicality.
Opening with the French electro infused ‘Everything‘ the trio offer a euphoric 110bpm piece of bass music that fans of Justice should have no problem sliding into their playlist. Moving on to the title track, ‘Love To Give‘ is a bittersweet breakbeat rave bomb with a dark edge that’s perfect for peak time dance floor action. The EP rounds off with two slices of high-energy 140bpm bass. First up is Walking Def’s collaboration with Virus Syndicate, ‘Let Me Show You‘. Feel-good disco chords and distinctive Virus vocals are underpinned by a chunky electro bassline creating dance floor havoc. Finally Walking Def pay tribute to their previous single with ‘Come To Me‘, a favorite of ours that will elate fans of bass-heavy dubstep the world over.
