MORE ABOUT ARTIST:
For Sam Walker and Gavin Royce, the question is the fundamental test of their
studio output. Simple as it may sound, for this perfectionist pair it’s anything but.
Their innate dance floor intuition, combined with years of experience behind the
decks, drives them to create music that isn’t just playable — it’s irresistible.
First introduced by way of New York City's early-aughts dance music scene, Sam
Walker and Gavin Royce first teamed up for a remix in 2011. The duo found early
success on tastemaker labels like Crosstown Rebels, OFF Recordings, and
Moda Black, scoring an Essential New Tune nod from Pete Tong with 2014’s
“Sister.” The indie dance and deep house sounds that informed Walker &
Royce’s earliest work soon gave way to something different. Quirky accents and
bouncy synths, previously deeper in the mix, leapt to the forefront, backed by a
propulsive new energy. The success of their November 2015 “Bright Lights”
remix was a clear indication that they were onto something.
In October 2017, Walker & Royce released their debut album Self Help on
Dirtybird, which both showcased and expanded upon their now-signature sound.
The guys enlisted numerous vocalists, including Green Velvet, Dances With
White Girls, and Sophiegrophy, to make Self Help feel like a packed house party
– while leaving no doubt about who was hosting. Self Help was followed by
further experimentation and growth. Sam and Gavin have collaborated with
Claude Vonstroke, Ardalan, Chris Lake and VNSSA just to name a few as well as
remixed Channel Tres, LP Giobbi, The Knocks, Justin Jay, Gorgon City,
Mindchatter; and put out music on Relief, Black Book, HotBOi Records and
more. Their Rave Grave EP was the inaugural release on Diplo’s house-focused
imprint Higher Ground. Continuing to push boundaries, they have launched their
own label Rules Don’t Apply Records, with the ethos just as the name
states…No Rules, just good music.
Walker & Royce have spent years honing in on their one-of-a-kind style,
meticulously crafting the sounds they want their fans to hear in clubs, at festivals
and in their headphones. The result is a cohesive, career-defining body of work
that firmly places the duo at the forefront of dance music's future.
