MAGNETUDE - FRIDAY [VPR174]The second edition of Acts of Mad Men kicks off today with a brand new single from Magnetude
Having seen releases from some of the most respected veterans alongside the hottest newcomers in the drum & bass over the past 15 years, Futurebound’s Viper Recordings has gained a reputation as one of the scene’s strongest labels since its inception. Long time fans and jungle aficionados will remember the sacrilegious first edition of the ‘Acts of Mad Men’ compilation, which featured now classic tracks from Matrix & Futurebound, Nero, Brookes Brothers, ShockOne, Ed Rush & Optical, Sigma, Metrik, and many more.
Now, ten years on since the original Acts of Mad Men, Viper are proud to present Acts of Mad Men Volume.2 featuring brand new exclusive music from the scenes finest across a number of singles followed by a monster 30 track exclusive album in September.
Kicking Viper's 15 year celebrations off in style for AOMM Volume.2 part 1 is the gargantuan ‘Friday’,the perfect set starter from English/Russian duo Magnetude. A deceptively gentle opening with a daft punk’esq vocoder line layered over half time drums eases the listener in with a euphoric funk feel, slowly building in energy and anticipation before dropping into an explosion of vibrant yet heavy beats. Fitting the ‘Friday’ title perfectly, the track captures start-of-the-weekend vibes to a T with an optimistic catchy jingle that is sure to be a summer staple for everyone from DJs to the most casual of listeners.
Press play and watch this one slay any dancefloor!
Celebrating 15 years at the forefront of iconic drum & bass music, Viper is a name that has become synonymous with success, and this second addition of Acts of Mad Men is the perfect tribute to all that the label has accomplished since its inception in 2004.
