Brooklyn birds Walker & Royce have recently debuted the second track off their forthcoming Self Help album which will be released out on DIRTYBIRD October 20th. This next track ‘Rub Anotha Dub’ features vocals from House music pioneer Green Velvet, further showcasing Walker & Royce’s rich connection with the genre’s history and future alike.
‘Rub Anotha Dub’ has beats and a dazzling bassline that continues Samuel Walker and Gavin Royce’s reign over this year’s dance-floors world-wide. Their iconic production and building synth work retain their signature anthemic melody play while Green Velvet steps to the mic to tell a story of a club night’s past. This one is certainly for the peak times on the dance floor.
The release of the second single off Self Help comes just days before the guys head off on their 2017 album tour, kicking off with a run of European dates, culminating with shows at Germany’s Kater Blau and Egg London. They then turn their sights back towards home, kicking off the U.S. leg of the tour with a weekend at October’s Dirtybird Campout. From there, Walker & Royce begin their journey across North America with a slew of club and festival gigs; notable stops include Dirtybird Players parties in Brooklyn and Washington DC, San Francisco’s Halycon, Chicago’s Spybar, Detroit’s Grasshopper Underground, Los Angeles’ Sound and San Diego’s Bang Bang, with more dates set to be announced soon.
Self Help puts forth a career-defining debut album - an impressive clever project that lures listeners in with club-ready grooves only to leave them in contemplation. Walker & Royce invite you to get lost in the flowing constructs of their imagination while they search for the constantly evolving remedy of Self Help.
