Every summer there is usually one track which rules Ibiza; a track which takes on a life of its own and transcends dancefloors. This year, we’re willing to bet that track is ‘Low Frequency’, a low-slung, bass-rocking behemoth which has been slaying the opening parties and looks set to go the distance. “Maybe because it’s a straight-up party record with a catchy vocal” replies its creator, Denney, when we ask him why it’s taken off. “I was really happy with the initial mixdown; it has a real raw sound, especially in the bass. It’s just amazing to see the response it’s had worldwide." Having spent 6 weeks at the top of Beatport’s Tech House chart, not to mention week-in-week-out support on Radio 1, it’s safe to say ‘Low Frequency’ has mass appeal, verified with a new vocal version which is currently doing the rounds.
But while ‘Low Frequency’ may be one of the biggest tracks of the last six months, Denney has been a burgeoning underground talent for much longer. Having been producing for over ten years, with his first release dropping around 2005, his journey has required perseverance, persistence and countless studio hours, eventually paying off with releases on Hot Creations, 2020 Vision and Steve Lawler’s Viva Music to which he’s also signed. “It's only really this past year I feel I’ve totally found my own sound, but it’s something that will continually evolve” he tells us. “I strongly believe if you want something bad enough and continuously work then you will get there; it’s just a matter of time.”
So looking back, is there anything he would have done differently? “I wouldn’t do anything differently other than maybe going home from the afterparties a bit earlier...I wasted a lot of time partying!” he admits. Joining The Shimmy in Glasgow this Saturday for a hotly anticipated all-dayer in an abandoned basement, while also scheduled for a string of dates in Ibiza this summer, he may need to accept afterparties as par for the course.
