Spanish duo Dub Elements are certainly no strangers to the world of drum & bass. With releases on nearly every major label, consistent support from industry tastemakers ranging from Spor to Excision, and over a decade experience in not just production but events all over the world, Antonio Cano & Jose Luis Vazquez have known nothing but success over the years. Long-time friends of Futurebound and the Viper family, their debut release ‘Real Dogs’ on 2016’s Summer Slammers compilation was met with critical acclaim, hotly followed with singles like ‘Heartbeat’, ‘Bad Guy’, ‘Black Fog’, and many more, all living up to the Dub Elements hype.

Now, 2021 will see the release of a brand new EP from the Spanish madmen, and it goes by the name of Mindshaker. Packed with four brand new tracks, Dub Elements deliver the gritty and raw drum & bass they’ve become known for over the years, masterfully blending neurofunk with dancefloor energy that has found its perfect home on Viper.

Opening track ‘Raw’ delivers pure, unadulterated filth, beckoning the gnarliest of bass faces with every beat. The title track ‘Mindshaker’ is full of classic wobbles and rumbling basslines, accompanied by familiar MC bars that instantly transport us deep in the rave. The cleverly titled ‘Neofunk’ is a refreshing take on the genre, full of juxtaposed highs and lows and a frenzied energy that is as creative as it is chaotic. Last but not least, ‘Vacuum’ shows us Dub Element’s softer side… but not for long. An elegant opening lures you in before Dub Elements deliver a decimating dose of dirty drops with a classic jungle twist that makes it a sure standout on the EP.

Carnal rave energy wrapped up in a neat four-track package, Mindshaker is an EP you won’t want to sleep on, and a phenomenal addition to the ever-growing Viper catalogue, not to mention a strong indication of what’s in store for the label in 2021.
