After being sent some tracks from Coppa and Mind Vortex in 2016, Blaine Stranger quickly caught the eye of Viper Recordings boss Futurebound who locked down two his first track ‘Chat Shit Get Banged’ on Viper’s ‘Summer Slammers 2016’. Following that, Blaine Stranger released his debut single on Viper's sister label Viper VIP with ‘Rock With It / I See The End’.
Now joining Viper Recordings as their latest exclusive signing, Blaine Stranger opens the next chaper of his fledgeling career with the release of his first full single on Viper's main label with 'Mesmerise / Get Down', both of which have already caught the ears of the likes of Metrik and Friction on their BBC Radio 1 shows.
