Whether it’s dubstep, glitch hop or drum & bass, DJ and producer Vandermou has spent years learning his craft, after becoming enamoured by the world of dance music through his uncle Kaarel.
After deciding that he too wanted to follow the same path, he acquired a wide range of knowledge through pouring over countless sets, no matter what that music’s foundations were. After being immersed in the Andalusian breakbeat scene through the Diversity group, his horizons expanded and this experience led him to his current journey through the land of production.
He focused his efforts heavily in drum & bass and in the beginning of 2014, it lead him to founding Jack the Ripper events, where he offered a variety of different drum & bass genres, which also helped him shape his own musical influences. Moving from his collaborative project Aimlessly Team, through to his solo work, he’s already made a name for himself throughout the Sevillian scene, with his speed driven and varied sets.
Whether it’s neurofunk or liquid, he’s reigned supreme and already decimating crowds on worldwide stages, including that of Outlook Festival in 2016 and 2017, his studio presence is just as formidable, having been added to the roster of record label Nagual Recordings.
And joining him for this forthcoming single is Moderate Hate, who takes on remix duties for the formidable record ‘Pressure’. As a standalone track, ‘Pressure’ is a look into Vandermou and the music he represents. It’s hard-hitting, with a slickness which will appeal to many DJs as well as many club goers across the globe.
With its crunching drums and tearaway bassline, Vandermou doesn’t disappoint. On the reverse you’re presented with Moderate Hate’s take, drawing from the same sonics as Vandermou and contorting it into a different face. Its dancefloor edge shows how Moderate Hate lends himself to the live circuit, which is something which can also be said about the label he’s about to release on. Forbidden Musical Rites returns for another release, with their back catalogue becoming as weighty as ever. They’re pushing forward like never before and with releases like these coming through, they’re an exciting part of drum & bass.
