Viper Recordings are about to drop their ‘Sound of Drum & Bass’ compilation. We’ll be live-streaming the launch party from a secret London location on 9th March.
To get you in the mood, we caught up with D&B duo, Six Blade to hear their top ten all-time tracks on Viper.
1. Six Blade & A.M.C - Strangers
“This is probably our favourite tune we’ve made for Viper. We’re very proud of it and still play in our sets now!”
2. Shockone - Polygon Feat. Reija Lee
“We both loved this song from the moment we heard it. It’s such a big club track! Plus, whenever it comes on, our mate always tries to sing the vocals in a high pitched voice, and that’s always a pleasure to watch.”
3. The Prototypes - Pale Blue Dot
“This is a sick club track! Always goes off. The big intro makes it great to mix or open a set with.”
4. Brookes Brothers - Feat. Chrom3 - Carry Me On
Mike: “I love the vocal on this, this tune has such a wicked summery feel to it.”
5. Smooth - Drone
Jack: “I first heard this on a video clip Smooth posted and I went mental for it. The drop is next level! I remember we had a gig coming up that weekend so I instantly messaged Tim, one of the managers at Viper, asking/begging to be sent the track so I could play it out. Tim kindly sent it over and we were able to close our set with it.”
6. Matrix & Futurebound - Universal Truth
Mike: “The intro to this tune is so good and drops into such a banger. One of my favourite tunes ever.”
7. Metrik - Freefall Feat. Reija Lee
“This is a proper ‘hands in the air’ tune. We had it in our set for months.”
8. Futrebound vs Metrik - Brave new World
Mike: “The first time I heard this track I was working a nightshift and was listening to the radio. When it came on I got instant goosebumps."
9. Smooth - Virgo Cluster
“We used to start our sets with this track a lot, as it has a wicked intro and a sick drop.”
10. Cynematic - Space City
“This is always a go to track in our sets, it’s very well produced and sounds big in the club. It’s also a good tune to transition from one style to another.”
