Just ahead of the announcement of their exclusive signing to Viper Recordings, Austrian duo Dossa & Locuzzed have just released a massive new single including a wonderful piece with South Africa’s Tasha Baxter on vocals. In recent past, this duo has stamped their signatures into the sacred bricks of the drum and bass proving grounds. With both tunes being absolute dance floor bangers, expect this duo to stay on their steady rise to a full frontal takeover.

Every producer has inspirations. So many stem their productions through the influences of other artists, as well as their daily life and things they emotionally tie to their creations. This is why asking an artist who their musical influences are is one of my favorite questions. 80% of the time, an artist will root their passions from an outlandish source of energy in music. A true wild card. Without further delay, here is the team’s choice selection.

1. Herbie Hancock – Chameleon

This tune is from an album which was produced in an era when synthesizers had just became relevant in (funk) music. The way Herbie Hancock uses those synth sounds in his tracks influenced our sound a lot!

2. Jamiroquai – You Give Me Something

That catchy talkbox-esque guitar and the bassline just make you wanna move. This track definitely has something magical to it.

3.  Camo & Krooked – Turn Up (The Music)

This track speaks for itself, it was one of the first that didn’t follow the regular dnb-formular, and has a lot of soul in it. Just impressive!

4. Louis The Child – It’s Strange (Ramzoid Remix)

Really nice piece of music – we love how these pads and arps work together. Ramzoid is a madman anyway, he is only 18 years old and kills it again with every tune!

5. Lemaitre – Fiction

We love the combination of oldskool-funk elements and electronic sounds, also a very strong showcase tune in terms of musical timing. Lemaitre just bring it on point with this tune!
