HEADROOM EP (PT. 3 & 4) VIPER RECORDINGS VPR025 5th July 2010 1. DELTA HEAVY - ABORT 2. MATRIX & FUTUREBOUND (FEAT. SYLO) - THE EDGE (FUTUREBOUND'S 2010 VIP) 3. INSIDEINFO (FEAT. SW@T) - AWKWARD 4. FUTUREBOUND VS. CAMO & KROOKED - CHIC 2010 is again turning out to be a massive year for Viper Recordings. First release of 2010, the ‘Halo EP’ by DC Breaks, repeated the success of last years ‘Acts OF Mad Men LP’ in being hammered across clubs and radio alike. For this, the labels next release, some of Viper Recordings newer signings in the shape of Camo & Krooked, Inside Info and Delta Heavy, line up alongside label boss Futurebound for Parts 3 + 4 of ‘The Headroom EP’. With ‘Headroom’ parts 1 & 2 featuring classics such as Brookes Brothers ‘Crackdown’ and the Original Sin remix of J Majik & Wickaman’s ‘Fleshwound’ the standard for the next ‘Headroom’ installments was set incredibly high. However, with Andy C, DJ Hype, The Brookes Brothers, J Majik & Wickaman, High Contrast, Culture Shock, Ed Rush & Optical, Cyantific, Simon Bassline Smith, Matrix & Futurebound, Camo & Krooked and Danny Byrd all making this new EP a guaranteed part of their sets over recent weeks, there’s no doubt its going to be another huge release for the label. The impressive run of releases on Viper Recordings continues with the new Furlonge single ‘This Love’ (currently getting rinsed in the clubs by those lucky enough to have it on dub), new EP’s from Camo & Krooked and ShockOne and the new Viper album ‘DnB Summer Slammers 2010’ all set for release on Viper in 2010. DELTA HEAVY - ABORT ‘Abort’ follows on from the duo’s debut release ‘Galaxy’ which featured on last years Viper Recordings ‘Acts Of Mad Men LP’ and was supported by Zane Lowe when ‘Acts Of Mad Men’ was named Radio1’s “album of the week”. The duo have also recently remixed VV Brown and Crystal Fighters, the latter of which found its way, alongside Chase & Status and Plan B, onto the soundtrack to recent film ‘Harry Brown’ (staring Michael Caine). On the heavier dancefloors, this has been un-missable in recent weeks, with multiple rewinds from the biggest names in drum and bass, a bassline killer and no mistake. MATRIX & FUTUREBOUND (FEAT. SYLO) - THE EDGE (FUTUREBOUND'S 2010 VIP) Matrix & Futurebound are a duo who need no introduction, the roll call of labels they have released on (including Breakbeat Kaos, Moving Shadow, Virus, Ram, Hospital, Infrared and their own labels Metro and Viper) says everything you need to know. Currently in the studio working on a raft of new tracks for the new Matrix & Futurebound album (due late 2010), Viper label boss Futurebound has found time for this update of the stone cold classic cut ‘The Edge’ (feat. Bad Company collaborator Sylo) from 2007’s Matrix & Futurebound ‘Universal Truth LP’, beefing up the original track to give a heavier club punch for 2010 while maintaining the vibes which made the original such a favourite from the ‘Universal Truth’ album. INSIDEINFO (FEAT. SW@T) - AWKWARD For every new producer in drum and bass, Viper is one of a very small selection of labels that everyone wants to get a release on. Having previously released on DJ Hype’s Ganja-Tek label, Spor’s ‘Lifted label, Sparfunk’s Terrafunk label, and Viper sister label Viper VIP, this is InsideInfo’s debut for Viper. Once again Viper introduces the freshest new talent, and with ‘Awkward’, InsideInfo’s first track for the label couldn’t be stronger. Having had one of the first copies off the press, Ed Rush & Optical have led the charge with ‘Awkward’, its full on tech stomp and insane breakdowns leading to a stampede to Futurebound’s door for an upfront cut of the track. FUTUREBOUND VS. CAMO & KROOKED - CHIC Collaborations don’t come much more exciting than this. Futurebound has for a number of years played the worlds biggest drum and bass events (all the way from Fabric in London to Womb in Tokyo and Pirate Station in St. Petersburg) and released classic tune after classic tune, including memorable collaborations with the likes of Brookes Brothers, Matrix, Digital and J Majik & Wickaman. Futurebound’s unique production style and experience of dancefloors all over the world is fused together with the sound of newcomers Camo & Krooked to produce ‘Chic’, which completes one of Viper’s strongest ever releases. Camo & Krooked are one of the biggest breakthrough acts this year (Grooverider on Radio 1 described the duo as his “ones to watch in 2010”) and this track acts as the lead up to their hotly anticipated debut EP for Viper, due out later this year.
