Beta Recordings is proud to introduce Vice City, two euphoria connoisseurs and rhythm aficionados dedicated to creating the most uplifting drum & bass known to man.
Leaving years of European club devastation in their wake under their previous guises (which, for now, will remain anonymous), the UK duo are launching with a crisp, spine-melting salvo that will leave you under no illusions of their big league abilities.
Their heady mission statement ignites with a blast of elated keys before dropping into a breath-taking drop where the vocal soars and bassline roars in total early 90s unity. Further on a series of sharp punctuated stabs rise and rise with teasing tightness, creating that crucial dark/light balance that will drive every floor into a frenzy. Trust us… ‘Fake’ is for real!
‘I’m Free’ builds on this evangelistic foundation with a timeless jam that taps deep into rave’s richest heritage. Bouncing on a bed of breezy synths, elevating chords and teasing arpeggio, the pair reference one of hardcore’s most distinctive hooks with the power of an everlasting nuclear glo-stick.
Finally ‘Without You’ brings us to a fittingly explosive EP climax. Graced with the honeyed tones of Ronny Blue, here we find Vice City thrusting forth with a gutsy, razor-worm bassline and an array of lazer-lashing synth leads. Complete with a breakdown of tight string strums and rapturous second drop, it’s the perfect way to end one of the most emphatic, accomplished debut D&B singles you’ll hear all summer.
Firing fusions of electronic music’s most alluring and enduring elements, Vice City have opened for business… And this is just the beginning!
