UK Duo DC Breaks have been on Ram Records’ radar for a long time now, releasing tracks for sister label Frequency including the gorgeous ‘Pickett Line’ in 2009 and already enjoying a high level of support at radio by Annie Mac, Zane Lowe, Pete Tong, Mistajam and Bailey. They have produced a series of sought after remixes, for artists as diverse as Tinie Tempah, Example, JLS, I Blame Coco and Rox. DC Breaks are not confined to a studio, they have taken the DJ game to another level with six decks and two mixers between them, making them one of the most exciting acts to grace clubland.
Now ready to hit the headlines, DC Breaks have now exclusively signed to Ram, home of Subfocus, Loadstar and of Chase & Status’ debuts, with this single as their first release.
And what a stunning debut! For ‘The More I Want’, DC Breaks are at their euphoric best with soft percussions and melodic strings grounded by a deep bassline, with Rough Trade’s nu soulstress Rox taken out of her comfort zone to deliver vocals of anthemic proportions.

‘We ‘re gonna get nasty’ warns the intro of ‘Take That’ as DC Breaks show the other side of their studio skills. Despite light keys and strings, the track is dominated by a ferocious distorted bass slab destined to demolish any dancefloor.

DC Breaks are brilliantly showing off their talent with this single, managing to ooze musicality while retaining a brutal dancefloor appeal. Ram have got another winner on their hands.
