When it comes to Drum & Bass, Brazil has got some serious pedigree. Since Marky burst onto the scene at the turn of the century, there has been a steady stream of talent emanating from the country, XRS, Bungle, BTK & S.P.Y to name just a few, and the latest in this lineage is Sao Paulo’s Nitri.
Racking up an impressive six 12” releases in 2013 alone, he gained the support of some of the scene’s main players in the process. Andy C, Friction, Hype, dBridge, the list goes on, and it’s not hard to see why. With a style and sound that is constantly shifting, changing and evolving, it does not fit easily into any of the increasingly ludicrous sub genre’s and tags placed upon music today. Simply, it is deep drum & bass from his heart, straight to the dance floor.
Nitri came to meet Addictive Behaviour in 2015 when collaborating with fellow Sao Paulo based producer Level 2 on a track for our first Rotation various artists album. The result was a warping bass fuelled track, oozing with summer vibes and made a perfect melody for Hannah Eve to add the finishing touch with some alluring vocals. ‘Don’t Think’ brought an alternative melancholy chill out to the album and rounded up the first Rotation LP fantastically.
With plenty more projects in the pipeline for a plethora of the scene’s leading labels, be sure to keep your eyes and ears out,. This is just the tip of the iceberg for this exciting new talent.
