DOSSA & LOCUZZED SIGN EXCLUSIVELY TO VIPER
THE AUSTRIAN DUO JOIN TEAM VIPER
Viper Recordings are proud to announce the exclusive signing of Austrian duo, Dossa & Locuzzed. Hailing from St. Pölten, a sleepy town in Lower Austria, the duo consists of Benedikt Dengler (Dossa) and Rene Maierhofer (Locuzzed).
While gearing up to drop their debut single on Viper’s sister label, Viper VIP, Dossa & Locuzzed are no strangers to the label having 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, Dossa & Locuzzed are ready to drop 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.
