Audio Bullys Return With New Single “As We Step”
Audio Bullys have released their first material in 12 years with “As We Step”, a classic slice of Audio Bully’s sound which harks back to the golden era of rave. It is — in their own words — “a bit of a banger”, and you’d be hard pressed to find someone who would disagree with that. Recorded in their hometown of London, the track takes inspiration from a Switch remix of their own “Way Too Long” single from 2004, cutting Franks’ re-recorded vocal over the stabs of Rhythm Sections’s unsung 1991 rave classic “Emotion”.
Speaking about how he first came across the sample, Dinsdale says; “When I was 15, I used to go round to a family friend’s house on my way home from school so I could learn how to DJ. He was 5 years older than me and had the set up… I had zero problem with turning up completely uninvited most days, and probably was really annoying looking back. I learned on hardcore and Jungle and DnB records, mostly bought from Slammin’ Vinyl in Kingston. Years later I got in contact with the guy and digitized the remaining collection for myself and him. This was one of the records and I just parked it up in my ‘things to sample one day’ folder and it came in handy at the right time… I forget about things for months, if not a year or two in this case… until I find a folder lurking on a drive and have a peep through it.”
It arrives at an auspicious moment for the pair, who also celebrate the 20th anniversary of their debut album Ego War. A record which went silver and featured hits such as “We Don’t Care” and “Face in a Cloud” and — along with follow up hits such as “Shot You Down” and “Gimme That Punk” — established Audio Bullys as one of the most exciting acts in the UK music scene.
