, the label started up by the mighty Futurebound
, celebrates ten years in the game putting out drum & bass music this month. To mark this achievement, he has collected beats from the family who make up the Viper roster, and packaged it all together to bring you their "Decade of Viper" compilation. A heady mix of raw beats, catchy synths, and floor filling anthems, "Decade of Viper" is a snapshot of the label, and where it is now in its current state.
Having given shine to the likes of Sigma
and Delta Heavy
back in the day, to troubling the charts more recently, Viper have been on quite the journey in their ten year history. All the squad is present and correct: Futurebound is on two tracks; "Go Free", with Gridlok
and "Savoy Affair' with Smooth. Cyantific,
who has just joined the label recently, makes his debut with "Bring You Love", while InsideInfo
teams up with tech titan Prolix
on "Transposed". The Prototypes
continue their onslaught with the stomping "Moscow", and newcomers Bluescreens
& Cynematic's "Aurora" gives it some swing.
A very happy birthday to the team down at Viper, and here’s to ten more years of music. You can pick up the LP here.
