After dropping their first official single together, ‘care 4’, last year, Sempra and Banditt have enjoyed success in their own individual rights, each racking up streams and landing on playlists across the web. Following the success of their previous collaboration, ‘Give u’, on their Bristol based dance music imprint Draconian Audio, the duo are back once again with a third helping of UK Garage, in the form of new single ‘Wait.’

After meeting at university and both embarking on solo journeys, in 2019 they launched their label together and the following year they began collaborating musically outside of their typical genres. Cutting his teeth with other young DnB heavyweights in venues across the south of England, Banditt is quickly rising through the ranks to become one of the most prolific mic men about. Complimenting his blend of UK garage, grime and DnB, Sempra’s experimental outlook on DJing and production has seen him become a specialist in a variety of genres including jungle, breaks, dubstep and grime. 

The pair’s latest offering ‘Wait’ showcases Sempras trademark watertight production, drawing influences from classic 2-step and modern trap, allowing Banditt’s distinctive vocals to glide over the beat with his clever punchlines and catchy hooks. It’s a perfect track for the underground club circuit, which both are regulars at having headlined shows in London and Bristol, as well as residencies with a variety of established brands.

You can expect more releases in 2022 and beyond from Sempra and Banditt, as the duo continue to explore their sound outside the limits of any one genre.
