Helix Records debuts rising talent Chapter & Verse with his new single “Ready For The Rave,” which throws it back to the old-school UK raves, as the name clearly suggests.
Opening with catchy vocals and a strong buildup of stabbing synths, Chapter & Verse wastes no time by upping the ante. The track breaks down in a driving, four on the floor beat that will slay dancefloors all over the globe and bring listeners back to the infamous underground, sometimes illegal, days before electronic dance music’s mainstage heyday.
True to his dynamic style, Chapter & Verse also weaves in some modern tech-house influences with kickdrums and chopped vocals. Read on for the inspiration behind the track from the artist himself:
“I wanted to create a track which incorporates old-school rave along with modern-day tech house. I found and modified an old rave stab to create the sound heard throughout the 90s. I added a vintage Chapter & Verse bassline, an old-school vocal and ‘Ready For The Rave’ was born” – Chapter & Verse
