Ahead of the release of their first new artist album in four years, legendary duo Stanton Warriors return with new single ‘They Follow’ released on NewState Music on 15th March. ‘They Follow’ is a classic slice of Stanton Warriors rolling breakbeatbass featuring special guests Stush – the first lady of UK dancehall – and globetrotting hip-hop threesome Foreign Beggars.
’They Follow’ is a taster of what to expect from the Stanton Warriors forthcoming ‘Rise’ album out this summer – their first since 2015’s Rebel Bass album which reached No.1 in the Dance Album Charts. ‘Rise’ is released on NewState Music on 31st May 2019.
‘They Follow’ is backed by a high-octane video filmed at night around the banks of London’s River Thames and downtown Toronto, Canada. The video was directed by the acclaimed artistic visionary Marc De Groot who has previously worked with some of the biggest names in dance music, including Carl Cox, Sasha, and Fatboy Slim.
Since bursting onto the scene in 2001 with their multi award-winning compilation ‘The Stanton Sessions’, the Stanton Warriors irresistible and inimitable sound has consistently remained the soundtrack to some of the world’s biggest and best parties; from East London warehouses, Miami boat parties and illegal Detroit raves, to smashing up the stages of Coachella, Glastonbury, Burning Man and Ultra, selling out global tours, topping DJ lists and arguably having the largest number of band logo tattooed fans in the world!
In the studio, Bristol’s Mark Yardley and Dominic Butler have honed a trademark sound that is at once all their own, but also utterly indefinable, leading to high-profile releases on XL Recordings, Fabric, Cheap Thrills, Central Station and Universal, alongside official remixes for everyone from Daft Punk and Fatboy Slim, to MIA, Gorillaz and Danny Byrd. This phenomenal output and remarkable longevity have ensured the Stanton Warriors legendary status amongst not only their fans, but also their peers, as they remain fresh, original and relevant, obstinately dancing to the beat of their own drum, helping to pave the way for new talent, proudly ploughing their own genre for twenty years and as the new album title points to, still continuing to rise.
