New Release – VPR076: TREi – Seeds VIP / Get Down [Viper Recordings]
New Zealand’s TREi is no stranger to Viper Recordings with his Beatport #1 track ‘Seeds’ from last years Headroom EP 5, through to his latest offering on Viper’s Drum & Bass Summer Slammers compilation. Now exclusively signed to Viper, TREi is ready to drop his first official single: Seeds VIP / Get Down.
‘Seeds VIP’ is a bass thirsty take on the original with relentless drums and a cavernous reese style bass, this VIP is sure to bring destruction to any dance floor.
Next off, TREi delivers yet another ground shaker ‘Get Down’ that takes bass heavy to a whole new level. Spacey synths combined with a hard hitting bassline and a solid drum sequence is sure to make this track a firm favourite.
It’s clear to see that TREi is making himself known as a heavyweight within the Drum & Bass scene, with support from major players Matrix & Futurebound, Drumsound & Bassline Smith, Friction, Black Sun Empire, ShockOne, alongside many more.
