8Bit Records boss Nick Curly returns to the label with the ‘Amnezia’ EP, bringing two tech-house cuts that pack quite the punch.
The Mannheim producer/dj Nico Döhringer aka Nick Curly has continued to shine since the turn of the century. His trademark deep, hypnotic sounds have seen the German artist land on labels like Cocoon, Drumcode, Get Physical and the now defunct Cecille amongst many more.
This new EP opens up with the title-track ‘Amnezia’ which brings slick drum lines, robust bass tones and scraped top percussion together to form the foundation of this tightly knitted tech-house roller. Layered perfectly with ghostly vocals, the tension gathers and builds momentum succumbing only a couple of times to well-placed breakdowns.
‘Second Lick’ is a more emotive house sound. Built on solid drums that carry a fine swing, bright arpeggiated melodies begin to dip in and out of the track nudged along by low-slung bass tones that create a hypnotic peak time number that will move floors.
Overall these two versatile, peak-time cuts will have Curly ruling floors again this Summer.
Nick Curly’s ‘Hypnotize’ EP will land on 8Bit Records from April 24th, 2017.
