Steven Lee vs Goldie
SuperHero feat Macy Gray (Goldie Remix)
This ninja has been going to parties and clubs for over a decade and half. Through all the sets, all the singles, all the albums, and all of the crazy nights, one genre has always stood out – drum and bass. Something about the fast paced snare hits, the smooth, rolling bass, and those often uplifting vocals always have us beaming, and today, we have just that.
London-based Goldie threw us for a bit of a loop on this remix, leading us to believe we were going to enter a world of fluid liquid sounds, gracefully rolling throughout a six-minute drum ‘n bass journey. Macy Gray’s soulful vocals helped with to build that assumption, all of which came blissfully crumbling down as razor sharp industrial elements came charging in after the build.
Reminding us a bit of Dieselboy’s The 6ixth Session, this remix is an intriguing ride. Hopefully it adds to the growing movement of this often forgotten, but legendary genre.
Nasty (Spor Remix)
The legendary Spor is back with a new remix! Following the hype on the new The Prodigy song ”Nasty”, the UK producer is set to take over the revival of drum and bass music with this track. The heavyhitting bass is reminiscent of the classic DnB scene, giving us a retro vibe yet keeping things fresh. Spiced up and intensified, this remix is just what we wanted to hear. Spor made sure to toss in vocal samples from the original song and provide us with the ultimate adrenaline rush. It’s powerful, badass, and it sure will shake up the dance floor.
Whether you like old school drum and bass or not, Spor a.k.a Jon Gooch is definitely reestablishing his status as one of the game’s frontrunners. The hype is as real as it gets.
Nasty (Zinc Remix)
Feeling nasty? This big beat banger by The Prodigy is remixed by fellow British producer/DJ Zinc, and it’s as nasty as it gets. The heavy-hitting original is stripped down and dressed up with another drum and bass outfit, providing a more refined sound. Strings that outline the original bassline are incorporated into the tune, as well as a series of deep bass synths. The result is an epic UK bass goodness that keeps you on your feet, headbang like crazy, or better yet, dance ’til your body can’t move anymore.
Big ups to the veteran DJ Zinc for bringing back the sound that everyone loves, and holding it down for the British dance scene. We cannot wait to see what magic he pulls in the future.
It’s finally a new year and you know what that means…”NEW YEAR, NEW ME”. Before we get into that cliche nonsense, let’s just ruin your resolution of cutting back on partying with some bitchin’ tunes to get your weekend going strong. As we celebrate the first weekend of 2015, we hope that you ninjas are ready to get down with your bad selves.
As always, #danceirresponsibly.
Unti next week, ninjas.

11 11/My Heart
2014 marks ten years in the game for Viper Recordings, the popular UK drum and bass label ran by producer and DJ Futurebound. The past decade has seen the platform gain considerable success, signing some of the scene’s most impressive artists and releasing a string of classic tunes that will be played for well over the next ten years. The label is choosing to celebrate their birthday by putting out a brand new compilation, “Decade Of Viper”, filled with both exclusive tracks and a set of classic Viper tunes that have been doing the rounds at D&B nights since they were first unleashed.
The array of artists that feature on this LP is quite astonishing – from Sigma to Delta Heavy, The Prototypes to Koven. Previously unheard music takes the form (amongst many others) of Tali “Forces”(Trei Remix), Smooth & Futurebound “Savoy Affair” and Cyantific “Bring You Love.” There are twenty Viper favourites on this album, ranging from DC Breaks “Halo”, Smooth “Virgo Cluster”, The
Prototypes “Pale Blue Dot” and Seven Lions “Below Us” ft. Shaz Sparks.
It’s certainly been an impressive decade for the Viper family, and we’re looking forward to the next one. The “Decade Of Viper” LP is out now, and you can purchase a copy here.
DJ Fresh Feat. Ella Eyre
Gravity (DJ Marky Remix)
Drum and bass is alive and well in Sao Paolo, and DJ Marky has his fingerprints all over it. The famed beatsmithing gaucho recently corralled an official remix for DJ Fresh’s monster tune “Gravity,” which features the glorious vocals of MOBO and Brit Award winner miss Ella Eyre.
Delightfully delivering a delicate jungle-inspired remix of an already stellar tune, Marky is bringing the masses a light and vibrant take. With a cascading blend of fast-paced maracas, a classic piano melody, and expert vocal sampling, “Gravity” floats along our cerebellum, making us smile and dance all across the office.
We’re pretty sure you’ll fall into suit, so just make sure you wait until everyone is out at lunch before you press play.
Remember – always check to make sure you’re laced up before boogying. You don’t want your co-workers to come back to an awful mess.
