Crash and Burn Digital Single

“Crash And Burn” featuring Natalie Storm is out as a digital single on 27th February, following an upfront limited 10” vinyl version of the single, out on on 30th January. A very early leak of the tracks, to a handful of tastemakers, has been met with a great buzz and support from DJs including Mary Anne Hobbs (XFM) and Rob da Bank (BBC R1). This is the first single from Hint’s upcoming third album, ‘Daily Intake’, which sees the respected producer working with incredible hand-picked vocal talent from around the world, mashing up dancehall, hip hop, UK house and bass music influences to create a scintillating album for dancefloors and headphone moments alike.

“Crash And Burn” featuring Natalie Storm is Hint’s take on current UK house music mixed with Jamaican dancehall. Catchy yet intense, it is undeniably a heavy party tune, but through the serious and thought-provoking lyrics, which address injustices in the World, Jamaican vocalist Storm proves that not every club banger has to be all about partying. Hint (Jonathan James to his Ma) says, “Natalie had free rein to cover whichever topics she wanted, so I think it came off as a true collaboration. She picked up on the mood of the track and used the energy to talk about something passionately.”

In addition to the lead track, this digital release of the single features the Maddslinky Remix and Hint Club Remix of album track “Give It Up” featuring Josie Stingray and 1-O.A.K. and additional reworks of “Crash And Burn” from label-mates The Bamboos and DJ modest of Belleruche, plus up-and-coming hot talent Darq E Freaker.
