Trei has been a mainstay with Viper Recordings since 2013 but it’s been a few years since he released solo tracks with them, preferring to lend his brand of emotive yet hard-hitting DnB to compilations and collabs. Last month he did release some solo jams on Viper, however, in the form of “Fools Rush” and “The Bends.” It doesn’t hurt that he has two more new tracks out on the Viper 2019 Annual: a compilation with Ekko & Sidetrack called “Luddites” and his own solo track called “Out There.”
Suffice it to say that for this guest mix he has bestowed upon Your EDM, Trei could have simply laid down his own recent Viper tracks back to back and everyone would have been more than happy. That is not the case however, and in fact this little 20-minute mix includes 15 tracks of varying genres and intensities. He’s covered all the great music that has come out or is coming out this month, including his own tracks but also featuring Insomniax’s banger “Foghorn,” Crissy Criss’s “Shockwave” with Malux and Erb ‘n’ Dub and Rido’s “Blueprint” with Joe Ford. There’s also some fun wild cards like a track from Vowel on Bad Taste, multiple Prototypes tracks and some seemingly random tracks from Dub Elements. It’s a power-packed little mix full of surprises and emotional ups and downs.
We won’t say much more other than this mix is a need to listen to hear all the bangers that are out and up in the next month or so. It’s also a lesson in how to put all these seemingly opposed tracks together in a subgenre mashup mix that defies gravity.
All of Trei’s newest tracks on Viper and otherwise are available on his Beatport page and clips are available on Soundcloud or full streams on Spotify. Don’t forget to pick up the Viper Annual as well, out now.
