Following up on our catalogue, we’re happy to announce our latest release, featuring a single from the Finnish young prodigy which is Nosfer.
After first releasing on Counterpoint back in 2017, Nosfer has been walking his sonic path, mainly through his collaborations with the Music Squad collective. While becoming a more spread out name in the scene, mainly through his music on Principle Records and the Music Squad label itself, Nosfer is still pretty much a rare undiscovered diamond of talent.
Having the privilege of working closely with the artist for the past two years, we have been constantly surprised by the amount of creativity cored inside his sound. The first wave of this output comes in the form of this single, which showcases both an outstanding production skillset and an emotional approach to the “deep-tech” sound of Drum & Bass.
Side A // Nosfer – Interlinked
It is not that usually that we find a perfect balance between the highly demanding technical sound of deep Drum & Bass, and soulfulness of more musical pieces. For us that is the Counterpoint – the exact sweet spot of our sonic aesthetic. Interlinked, for us, is that perfection in equilibrium.
The dark futuristic soundscape of the intro drops into a razor-sharp percussion, conducted by a very intense low-end pressure. The perfectly crafted midrange synth sounds tip the scales back towards the musical side, giving the track a noticeable twist towards a more melancholic note.
Side B // Nosfer & Sinic – Make Me Feel
For the flipside, Nosfer invites the critically acclaimed talent – Sinic, for a collaboration in which the melodical sound takes the main stage, through an amazing deep and orchestral production.
Still maintaining the overall aesthetic in line with the current deep sound, it takes things a bit further, incorporating nuances of a more “liquid” sound, to contrive a standout track, that hits a perfect trifecta of soul, pressure, and progression.
Counterpoint (XX13) is a Portuguese independent Drum & Bass Agency & Music Label.
Our experience has led us to develop an introspective approach to the sound of Drum & Bass, Breakbeat, and all the 160+ BPM Bass Music.
