DA Premiere: Kove – Drop (Original Mix)
British bass stalwart Kove hit it big with mid-summer crossover moment “Way We Are,” adding to an already accomplished run at the boundaries between drum & bass, commercial house and everything around the edges. Enroute to his next MTA Records short-player, the Annie Mac approved contender makes with an A-side on-par with his far from cautious stance on the British circuit to date.
The transition from steady breaks to heavy-footed kicks sets an immediate precedent for “Drop.” It doesn’t play by anyone’s rules, bridging a persuasive gap between two supposedly opposing sides of the musical spectrum in a truly striking way. Matching scratchy house hallmarks with a pinch of big room audacity, the track is energetic, intuitive and everything we have come to love about Kove’s global ascent so far. With three more tracks from ‘Murmurations’ still to show their face enroute to its early October release, the British heavyweight looks set for another home run in the name of genre-defying activity from the heart of British dance music.
Release date: October 5
