Insidious: Proceeding in a gradual, subtle way, but with harmful effects.
So the dictionary tells us, but if the word insidious bears any relation to Rene LaVice’s rise to drum & bass prominence it’s that it is the exact opposite. Smashing his way to the top of the game within a year with nothing but a hugely positive effect, Rene LaVice is poised to unleash his debut album on Ram Records following just a handful of releases.
It would be foolish to think that Rene LaVice and his music weren’t ready for such a bold step, though. Last year saw his tunes find a home on the playlists of tastemakers such as Annie Mac, Nick Grimshaw and MistaJam, become highlights in the sets of Ram boss Andy C amongst many of his D&B peers, top the sales charts amidst fierce competition from all manner of bass music and storm into Mixmag’s top 50 tracks of the year.
How exactly, you may ask, has a relatively new artist from Canada managed to achieve all of this in 2012? Your first listen to his debut album ‘Insidious’ will undoubtedly answer that.
