The lush drum & bass collaboration from Manchester natives Mark Menzies and Nika D along with London-based produer Noppo has landed on Nika D’s Bad Medic Records.
Ever since Virus Syndicate’s Nika D incepted Bad Medic Records, he’s been on a very specific mission; if you’re good enough, you’re old enough, regardless of being seasoned or newcomers. Bad Medic has been on a roll this year, releasing tracks throughout the spectrum of bass music ever since their debut EP came out at the beginning of the year.
Now for their next release, Bad Medic Records has brought label boss Nika D alongside fellow Mancunian Mark Menzies, and London-based producer Noppo for a feel-good summertime drum & bass number ‘Next To You.’ This concoction of bass music and rap sees a move away from the typically explosive anthems which Bad Medic Records offers.
A lush rolling liquid drum & bass track, its soulful vocal overtures tell the story of love, loss and missing the good elements of relationships alongside grief; the record having been written following the death of Nika D’s father. Noppo provides the musical backdrop meanwhile Nika D and fellow Manchester native Mark Menzies bring their talents to deliver a track which adds to the diversity in the Bad Medic Records back catalog.
With Nika D being a an artist has toured extensively, from Europe to the US, he has remained a pivotal part of the wider music circuit which has enabled the success of Bad Medic Records, even during its infancy. Already boasting a weighty discography, including collaborations alongside Franky Nuts, Dope D.O.D and Harry Shotta, the label returns with brand new single ‘Next To You.’
There’s an already stellar cast of artists on the newly founded moniker, and Nika D is clearly using his influence to set incredibly solid foundations. Proving there’s more to come from the imprint and with a founding member of Virus Syndicate at the helm, they’re continuing to make waves across the dance music world with their output.
