|RELEASED:||May 6th, 2016|
Having just signed exclusively with Viper Recordings, Austrian duo Dossa & Locuzzed drop their debut single on Viper’s sister label, Viper VIP. Although no strangers to the label, the duo has appeared on Viper’s ‘Drum & Bass Summer Slammers 2015’ album with ‘Hollow’, and then again on ‘The Sound of Drum & Bass 2016’ with ‘Bad’.
A quality imprint in its own right, Viper VIP has been responsible for some of the freshest, most innovative Drum and Bass the scene has to offer. Much more than a sub-label, the truly international imprint has quickly gained a reputation for showcasing fresh new talent from across the globe with debut and early releases from such names as: Smooth, InsideInfo, Metrik, Kove, Camo & Krooked, Maduk, Koncept, and BMotion all featuring in its illustrious back catalogue. Now joining this illustrious class is Viper’s newest signing, Dossa & Locuzzed with the single ‘Only Way / Electric Boogie’.
First up is ‘Only Way’, featuring the eclectic vocal talents of South Africa’s Tasha Baxter. A legend in the scene, Tasha Baxter has been the voice of many anthems over the past decade with collaborations with some of the biggest Drum & Bass and Bass Music producers in the game such as: Spor, Feed Me, Noisia, Brookes Brothers, Smooth, and The Upbeats – along with being a 2X SAMA (South African Music Award) Winner. Epic from the start, and spine tingling till the end, there are bags of funk and soul in this peak time, sky-reaching future classic. Quality production and club-friendly rhythms throughout.
Next up we have ‘Electric Boogie’, a slightly more gritty addition to the single; but don’t be fooled, this still has enough funk and hooks to get any party started. There is a familiarity in the beat that stomps its way through funky stabs and bouncing basslines. There won’t be a sole standing still in the dance with this one blasting out.
