Counterpoint (since 2013) is a Drum & Bass label and collective from Porto, Portugal. Our focus on the deep sound has led us to develop an introspective and intimate approach to the sound of Drum & Bass, and all 160+ BPM Bass Music.
As we continue with the reboot of COUNTER x CULTURE, we present the third instalment on the series. Following through with the series mission of finding the most exciting upcoming artists, we're proud to introduce Romanian rising talent - Brusten.
Based in Bucharest, Alex has been working closely with us for a long period to creating a 2-track single which fully showcases his potential. Besides producing, he is also a very active element within the thriving Romanian Drum & Bass scene, promoting regular nights across the spectrum.
He delivers his perspective of the CXC line in two rollers which bring a little bit of imminent summer influence to our sound. While keeping true with Counterpoint's deep aesthetic, both tracks incorporate a funkier approach, making them perfect for creating ultimate vibes across clubs & festivals during the coming season.
Side A // Brusten - Spaced Out Funk
Brusten's style develops over a futuristic take on deep grooves, and this track is a statement of that. In "Spaced out funk" he exerts his powerful combination of modern deep bass sounds, and more traditional a high kinetic pressure of powerful swinging Drums. The track keeps progressing though a constant journey in the limbo between old and new.
Side B // Brusten - Transvision
Flipside "Transvision" maintains the funk nuances of Brusten's approach to drums, while taking things on a completely different path. Aimed at a high impact on the dancefloor this up an upfront track, is a high paced deep roller. Gritty basses and fast percussions are the main focus, which deliver a forward projecting pressure.
