Summer Slammers 2017 – Viper Recordings (Sampler)

The 8th instalment of Viper Recordings’ Summer Slammers series is coming on the 30th June. As a taster, the label has provided a two-track sampler of the upcoming compilation. ‘Thoughtless’ by UK duo Hillsdom and ‘Shuttle’ by Russian duo Cynematic. These two rising stars of the scene each offer something slightly different. 

On Thoughtless Hillsdom let the synths, effects and bass dance on a shuffling rhythm of edgy percussion. Their keen attention to sound design and arrangement will hopefully continue to develop and produce tracks of the highest calibre. The bass swells and delicate high notes of Thoughtless are a contrast to the sonic onslaught of Shuttle‘s main verse. Cynematic have shown a flair for epic drops and scintillating verses on previous releases. I don’t think ‘Shuttle’ surpasses the likes of ‘Daytona’ and ‘Space City’, but it suggests they may have a variety of weapons in their sonic arsenal. They just have to refine their aim.
