Despite being relative newcomers to the drum & bass scene, Essex based duo Hillsdom, otherwise known as Jake Hicks and Jack Pike, have been deeply immersed in music since childhood. After playing and performing in several rock bands together, the two friends came together to release their first drum & bass track last year, ‘Lucid Dreams’, on UKF’s Pilot label.

Futurebound has long been known to spot budding talent for Viper, and further propelled the duo’s career forward with the release of ‘Thoughtless’ on last year’s Summer Slammers compilation, followed by ‘Sluggish’ on Viper’s 2018 Annual album, along with their recent remix of the Brookes Brothers’ ‘Now I’m Found’ from their new album, ‘Orange Lane’.

The talented duo are now back with yet another dynamic release on Viper, this time with a two-sided single that highlights both their diversity and increasingly distinctive sound. ‘Nocturne’, features the vocal talent of Novokane, who was featured on their first single ‘Lucid Dreams’. Soothing vocals glide over production that is simultaneously elegant and heavy, a unique and memorable sound which is quickly becoming their trademark.

On the flip, ‘Urban 64’ is an elegant and fluid track with spacious atmosphere, with bold, echoing, xylophone-driven melodies juxtaposed against their unique techy-yet-groovy bass.

Hillsdom have once again proven they are a name to watch in the drum & bass scene, and Viper is proud to add their latest release to the labels prestigious catalogue.

Trei and Tali made waves together when the New Zealand natives teamed up together on Trei’s remix of Tali’s single ‘Forces’ back in 2014 as part of Viper’s ‘Decade of Viper’, 10 year anniversary album. Now, the two are teaming up once again to deliver their next collaboration for Viper, the absolutely stunning masterpiece that is ‘Rebels’.

Tali’s illustrious vocals instantly fill the room with her unique combination of power and elegance, the perfect accompaniment to Trei’s sophisticated and energetic production. The track progresses into something a lot more powerful as it continues, Tali’s vocals taking a more ominous turn just as Trei’s production continues to evolve.

 

 

On the flipside of this single comes a remix from Spanish duo Dub Elements, who have managed to breathe new life into Trei and The Upbeats powerhouse tune, ‘Tonto’. Adding a gritty, tech feel to the pure raw energy of the original, this remix is a serious force to be reckoned with. Non-stop energy from start to finish, we expect to hear this one demolishing dancefloors everywhere in no time.

About Bmotion:

Growing up in Pontypool where, “nothing much happens except the occasional cat going missing”, BMotion was lucky enough to grow up in a musical household. His Dad, being a pianist used to run a Pub which held live music several times a week all year round, exposing him to music from day one. With his father heavily rooted in Jazz, it was a natural for BMotion to follow suit and he started playing the drums and later the guitar. From day one he grew up surrounded by live music filling his ears with various influences which would help shape the sound that defines him.

BMotion eventually discovered DnB through a friend, who showed me a YouTube clip of a Pendulum track. “I was really into Metal at the time, with bands like Metallica, Opeth, Dream Theatre and all the usual lot, so I didn’t tell anyone, in fear of being rejected from the metal club! However, I would sit up at night searching the internet for this awesome music I’d heard. I had no idea Drum & Bass existed at this point!” Eventually he would find various mixes on YouTube and radio shows such as DJ Hype’s KISS FM show and went to college to study music and had a classic on music technology using Logic Pro which gave him his first taste of producing and having an unlimited number of instruments at his fingertips.

After setting up his own studio using LogicPro, artists like Netsky, Cyantific and Noisia were his early production influences. After honing his productions skills, BMotion decided to enter Knowledge Magazine’s unsigned producer contest in 2012 and won with the track ‘Get Up’ which he submitted. This led to his first few singles on independent labels Rush Records and Soulvent Records where he released the track ‘Circles’ which picked up support on UKF.
Eventually his demos made their way into Viper Recordings label boss, Futurebound’s hands. Always on the lookout for breakthrough talent, Futurebound set his sights on up and coming Welsh producer and was immediately impressed with what he heard. Seeing the raw potential, BMotion sent through a few more tunes including ‘Summer Glow’ which ended up on Viper’s Drum & Bass Summer Slammers 2014 album, as well as ‘Feelings’ and ‘Something, Something’, which ended up being his debut Viper single as he signed exclusively to the label in September 2014.
