I think we can say without doubts that everyone who has been into Drum & Bass knows Viper Recordings. Home of many of the most famous artists of the dnb planet, Viper was founded in 2004 by Futurebound, one half of the homonimous duo Matrix & Futurebound. Viper is home for the good old synth leads, the melodic interludes that quickly turn theirselves into rave-ish drops, the sustained groove and the powerful chords. Nevertheless, Viper is also a label which likes to be the one to throw new talents on the floor. They did it recently with the austrian duo Dossa & Locuzzed, which have been releasing quite interesting drum & bass out of many of the ordinary pre-built schemes that this music tends to assume.
Dossa & Locuzzed (Benni and Rene) rocked the scene in Vienna, St. Pölten and Austria in general for some time before landing to London, and getting to know Viper Recordings (probably a dream that came true), as we discussed with them here. Their style is unique, because it relies a lot on the funky elements that are more typical of the 70’s rock music than the electronic styles. However, they manage to rinse it up properly very well, so we can do nothing but clap our hands to the rhythm of their basslines.
For their 100th release, Viper Recordings decided to split an EP into four parts and release them separately, hyping the crowd with awesome material. The first piece out is delivered by BMotion vs Dossa & Locuzzed and is called Love Blind, a track that has the most 80’s-like beginning that you’ll hear this month. It keeps the vibe going until the drop, where it definitely changes register into a more simple yet cheesy bassline that makes you move no matter what. After all, what’s better than a bassline to celebrate 100 successful releases in row? Find out when they release the next part!
