The imperious drum & bass duo, Delta Heavy, have kicked off the new year with an energetic new single called ‘Against The Tide’ with Lauren L’aimant.

Speaking exclusively with Ticket Fairy about their new single, Delta Heavy stated, “We collaborated with the amazingly talented Lauren L’aimant who provides the vocals.
