Tracklist

A1 – 1996

Splendid release by NTHNG on Mork,a  sublabel of one of the sickest labels in the game right now,Lobster Theremin. Shrouded in warm analogue fuzz and reverb, ‘1996’ sees the young producer on much more reverent form, channeling a wider range of influences from German dub techno to staggered UK bass and Giegling-esque minimal tropes.

Description

Having initially set out his stall with a fine debut 12″ on Mork last year, NTHNG returns with a similarly impressive follow-up. Opener “1996” sets the tone, layering drifting, Larry Heard influenced chords and surprisingly soulful vocal samples atop a rolling techno rhythm. “Vision Us” continues in a similar deep techno vein, with ricocheting percussion hits and dreamy, eyes-closed chords enveloping a chunky, bass-heavy groove. Finally, he lets his melancholy get the better of him on “Vision On”, whose drifting, bittersweet ambient chords offer a becalmed counter-point to a jazz-flecked, broken techno groove. It’s all impeccably produced, of course, and offers just the right balance between dancefloor nous and mood-altering musicality.
