London duo, Delta Heavy, have recently released their Lean Back remix of the international chart topper ‘Lean On’ by Major Lazer, DJ Snake (ft. MØ). The remix, which amps the chilled factor with a slower beat, brings an edge of sci fi. It breaks away from the South Asian vibe of the original, and instead infuses elements of house and dub. Overall, the track creates a fresh sound that you can almost visualise yourself cruising through space to.
Delta Heavy, which consists of Ben Hall and Simon James, debuted its first track ‘Galaxy’ in 2009 on Viper’s acclaimed Acts of Mad Men compilation. They have since had a series of successful releases including ‘Hold Me,’ ‘Get By’ and ‘Empire,’ elevating the pair to new heights in the industry. Delta Heavy have also enjoyed international success, Djing around the world independently and supporting acts such as Sub Focus and Example. The duo have also remixed the likes of Avicii, Tinie Tempah, Rita Ora and Nero, making them a force to be reckoned with. They are currently signed to RAM Records and are writing their debut album which will be released on the label soon.
Delta Heavy’s remix is available to stream and download on Soundcloud.
