After signing exclusively to Viper in 2016, nothing but success has followed Dossa & Locuzzed. The duo from Austria have seen support from some of the biggest names in drum & bass with singles like ‘Hollow’, ‘Stoned Love’, and ‘Electric Boogie’ being picked up by Sub Focus, Culture Shock, DJ Marky, and MistaJam among others. Following the release of their highly sought-after remix of Camo & Krooked’s ‘Honesty’ as well as their VIP edit of the iconic ‘Shag’, the duo are once again setting their sights on success with their latest label release.
In typical Dossa & Locuzzed fashion, ‘Fuse’ instantly transports the listener back to funkier times with a vibrant, energetic intro that is both nostalgic and totally fresh. The track utilizes old school phasers while harnessing white noise for an eclectic yet undeniably groovy result, serving as perfect proof of the duo’s ability to try new things while still forging a distinct, immediately recognizable sound of their own.
The flip side of the single, ‘Shake’, offers even more of Dossa & Locuzzed’s signature sound with retro, bubbly vibes through vibrant synths and eclectic samples, all of which give the track an infectious energy right from the start. Shimmering melodies set an upbeat tone while classic vocal chops add to the nostalgia of the tune. The track is relatively simple, giving each sound room to shine in the track and creating a formidable groove as is the duo’s trademark.
True pioneers of the genre who are constantly pushing the boundaries of bass music, it’s no surprise Dossa & Locuzzed have met with such success since their signing to Viper, and this latest release proves that the duo from Austria will only continue to move from strength to strength.
