The Walker & Royce rise to notoriety has been well documented in recent months. It all started back when Crosstown Rebels boss Damian Lazarus took note of a remix they released on Nervous Records. The result was the You’re Not Welcome EP via Crosstown Rebels which then led to releases on Moda Black and eventually the Catz n Dogz imprint, Pets Recordings. By this time, Claude VonStroke caught wind of what the talented duo were up to and immediately had them signed to Dirtybird with a release on Green Velvet’s Relief Records to follow.
The guys have found themselves regulars at Dirtybird events and have kept a consistent release schedule alongside the likes of Justin Martin, Will Clarke, Billy Kenny, and more, and are continuing to make waves with an upcoming release that has had crowds losing their minds.
The track is titled ‘Take Me To Your Leader’ and has had fans all over the CvS and Dirtybird inboxes as of late wondering what it could be. Featuring Dances With White Girls, who was also on the Chris Lake track ‘Operator’, ‘Take Me To Your Leader’ has distinctly upbeat and whimsical feel to it that is not typically characteristic of some of the trippier and more left field Dirtybird productions. The record tells an out of this world tale that is built around the undeniable groove of a funky Walker & Royce beat.
‘Take Me To Your Leader’, due out this Friday, is the first single off the highly anticipated debut Self Help LP that is expected to land on Dirtybird in October.
