    KOVE is the newest discovery by Viper label boss Futurebound, the latest in a long line of talents such as Nero, DC Breaks, ShockOne, Sigma, Metrik, Brookes Brothers, Smooth and Camo & Krooked who also cut their teeth as part of the Viper camp. Originally from Sussex and now living in Oxford (which has always steadily maintained a strong DnB scene), 21 year old KOVE hadn’t listened to DnB until 2010, then like so many others the rush of 170bpm caught his heart on his first proper DnB club experience. Little over 18 months later and KOVE’s debut single is due out on the mighty Viper recordings, and with Bailey and DJ Hype already rinsing out the tracks on radio, it's easy to see why Viper is once again putting its name to another new production talent.

    One of the most exciting things about KOVE’s debut is the stark difference between the two tracks on offer. While ‘Stellar’ bring the disco madness, ‘Breach’ goes deep and dark whilst still retaining the classic signature melodic style of Viper Recordings. The intro opens with warm washes and metromic clicks and ride cymbal, adding layered mid range and a heavily processed hand clap after 8 bars, filtering until the drop which comes in after a quick fire 32 bar intro (ideal for those quick double drops!). The bass when it hits is a cavernous snaking low end, morphing and winding its way through four bar loops, like a sub heavy brass DnB tuba. This is a bassline to savour; dark, heavy but also cultured in its execution. Alongside this bassline wonder is the perfect juxtaposition of live sounding classic two step drums, the awesome boom click evoking late 90’s tech step at its live break sampling finest.
