Increasingly recognised for their off-centre production style and trademark spin on techy, power-fuelled Drum and Bass, British duo Mob Tactics are known for kicking up the dust with each release.
Following the success of last year’s ‘Get Dirty / Shark Tank’ and the huge 4-track ‘Body Check EP’ last September, the producers are coming in hard and fast with brand new single ‘Get Dirty VIP / Welcome To Your Nightmare’ on Viper Recordings. In true Mob Tactics style, the duo waste no time in whipping up two memorable, multi-layered tracks; refocusing our attention once again to one of the scene’s most hotly-tipped acts.
First, ‘Get Dirty VIP’ lays down a fresh new spin on the original club smash of the title. A staple tune in every worthwhile DJ’s selection since January 2016, ‘Get Dirty’ now gets the Mob Tactics rework treatment and – believe us – it’s even bigger and better than before.
Next up, ‘Welcome To Your Nightmare’ keeps things seriously high energy with a mix of animated synths, razor-sharp riffs and a tech-driven bassline. Featuring clear-cut vocals from industry favourite Nuklear MC and drum-work to die for, this tune marks up as an instant classic.
Keep your ears pricked for more Mob Tactics coming soon, plus catch the duo dropping their biggest tunes at Part 2 of the renowned VIPER:100 live event set to hit Fire London on 26th May 2017. Grab your ticket now at viper100.co.uk
Man of the moment Turno, hot off his #1 Beatport single ‘The Invaderz’ teams up with Viper regulars North Base whose Viper track ‘What R U Doing? (Trei Remix)’ went onto be one of the Top 10 selling Beatport tracks of 2016. Now combining forces, Turno and North Base bring you the rowdy, jump-up banger ‘Third Eye’ featuring the legendary MC, Harry Shotta on vocals.
Already selected as Friction’s prestigious “Friction Fire” on BBC Radio 1 and receiving support from MistaJam on BBC 1Xtra, ‘Third Eye’ is one of the years biggest dancefloor tunes which cannot be missed!
Dossa & Locuzzed are quickly becoming one of Drum and Bass’ most highly regarded duos. Since signing exclusively to Viper Recordings in 2016, the Austrian producers have released a string of funk-inspired tunes which have gained tumultuous support from some of the industry’s biggest names. Following on from their huge release ‘Dance / Shag’ last September and the massive collaboration single ‘Love Blind’ last month with BMotion, Dossa & Locuzzed continue their mission to push D&B with heaps of soul and a dancefloor edge.
First up on the duo’s brand new single is ‘Stoned Love’, which takes a fresh approach with a classy Jazz-infused hook, stripped back beats and a groove to die for. Dreamy vocals and a rolling bassline equip this tune with the perfect chilled-out vibe.
On the flip, ‘Larry’ steps up the pace with what is quickly becoming recognised as the classic “D&L” sound, incorporating some seriously choppy beats and driving, bass-fuelled riffs which set this tune apart from the rest.
Bringing the funk to the floor once again, Dossa & Locuzzedcontinue to push boundaries with their original sound and bring a Jazz-inspired edge to the dancefloor which – it can be argued – Drum & Bass these days is sorely missing.
Back in July 2015, talented duo Koven released the monumentally successful ‘Sometimes We Are’ on Viper Recordings. After taking a break to release with Monstercat in the US, Koven are back in full force with the first single off their new Retrospective Compilation Album‘Lasting Part II’. The new album will reflect back on the works of Koven over the past half a decade, breathing new light into some of the duo’s most acclaimed records as well as 5 new exclusives and some of their most successful remixes. The Retrospective Compilation Album is being accompanied by a 4-week Australian and New Zealand tour as well as a string of key European dates.
‘Lasting Part II’ picks up where Koven last left off, revisiting the final act from the ‘Sometimes We Are EP’ and kick-starting a new chapter in their journey. Once again transforming dubstep as we know it, Katie and Max are taking this epic orchestral piece to the dance floor with a total bass overhaul.
