One of my favourite top 3 producers of the moment (well for the past 2 years in fact), NastyNasty is back with a new EP for this German label, Robox Neotech.
As usual, he kills it and he breaks your <3
My favourite track “Apologies” uses a sample from the awesome and magnificent “After The Laughter” track by Wendy Rene and man, after hearing Nasty’s version, there comes tears!
There’s another less than impressive remix of the same track by another artist floating about that has had a lot more coverage but imho, it is pretty bad, whereas NastyNasty’s version keeps to the track’s emotional turmoil, which is such a hugely important part of the track’s appeal to me.
Here’s a reminder of the original:
Here’s NastyNasty’s version:
On another one of my fave tracks “Resolve”, I think (well, I think I’m certain) he even uses a sample by one of my all time favourite composers/musicians, Astor Piazzolla (Argentine tango composer and bandoneón player), another master of melancholy.
Anybody who knows me, also knows that I did 3 official compilations on that kinda stuff a few years back. Astor, alongside, Hendrix, Nusrat and others is one of those guys who just blewww my mind when I first discovered him.
The other stand out tracks for me are “Monsters” & “Stacking”, once again imbued with that vocal melancholy, of the kind, that goes straight to my <3
NastyNasty has told me that he is moving foward in a new direction with future works and so be prepared to move with him! I just hope that he can continue to move me with the emotional content that his tracks usually pack because that is, what for me, distinguishes him from so many others.
Here’s what the label’s PR says:
