Since bursting onto the scene with their multi award-winning compilation The Stanton Sessions back in 2001, the Stanton Warriors irresistible and inimitable sound has consistently remained the soundtrack to some of the world's biggest and best parties. In the studio, Bristol's Mark Yardley and Dominic Butler have honed a trademark, uncategorizable sound that is at once all their own. This phenomenal output and remarkable longevity have ensured the Stanton Warriors legendary status amongst not only their fans, but also their peers. Stanton Warriors' 2015 album Rebel Bass featured a host of exciting bass artists such as Cause & Affect (aka Chris Lorenzo & Kane), which went to #1 in the Apple Music general album chart and Top ten in the iTunes dance album charts in eight countries. They also continued their sold-out tours across the USA, Europe, Australia and the Far East, collaborations on Claude Von Stroke's Dirtybird label and a slew of exciting releases on their own tastemaker label Punks. Rise is Stanton Warriors strongest album to date, with all twelve tracks ready to set dancefloors alight. Stanton Warriors have called on some of the scene's most exciting and diverse artists to collaborate with, across hip-hop, grime, house, dancehall, drum'n'bass. Featured artists include Foreign Beggars, Stush, Taiki Nulight, Sian Evans, Ami Carmine, Keith Thompson, Lily McKenzie, Danny Dearden, and Scarlett Quinn. Each track on Rise showcases Stanton Warriors's trademark rolling breakbeat-bass sound. Also included in the package on the second disc is their "Rise DJ Mix" that contains a selection of new remixes of tracks from their previous albums, releases from their own label Punks artists including Plump DJs, Chris Røyal, Cosella & Vanilla Ace, and tracks from Rise, remixed by the Punks family, plus an unreleased Stanton Warriors remix of Danny Byrd's "Salute". They remain fresh, original and relevant, obstinately dancing to the beat of their own drum, helping to pave the way for new talent, proudly ploughing their own genre for twenty years and as the new album title points to, still continuing to rise. Rise features: Sian Evans, Scarlett Quinn, Taiki Nulight & Danny Dearden, Stush & Foreign Beggars, Keith Thompson, Lily McKenzie, and Ami Carmine.
