Neve is becoming a sought after name in the world of drum and bass music with a peculiar fun style that has shaped his wider discography. With an EP already released in 2021, we are proud to premiere Neve’s upcoming release Softcore, a two track EP featuring Samurai Breaks.
Chatting about the release and his music Neve said: “I’m a perfectionist; I’m never satisfied. I’m not satisfied about 99% of my songs. But it keeps me going to the next level. I believe I’ve achieved some of my best work with the Softcore EP. It was on January 2nd, 2020, in Leeds with Samurai Breaks, a day I will never forget!”
Sonically speaking, Softcore opens up with a self-titled track featuring Samurai Break that springs out to you from the first drop. It’s an authentic rave piece that brings back a pre-pandemic club vibe with its potent skittering drums and unbowed structure. Moreover, we hear a similar style applied in ‘Swheat,’ which, like ‘Softcore’, is held by the hurried drums and its bludgeoning intensity throughout. Certainly, both pieces are club essentials; they are joyous, more than profound — perfect for people who love the nightlife and need something to take over.
Softcore will be available via all major platforms tomorrow, but for now, stream our exclusive premiere of the EP below.
