HARMONIC RAIN E.P. – NILA
The New Zealand based Nila is back with us on Pro B Tech with a quality EP that acts of a great sampler and teaser for his forthcoming album with us.
Like most quality producers Nila has a strong foundation with club music which dates back to 92 from being inspired by the likes of Dave Angel, Sasha, Carl Cox & Jeff Mills. This was such an obsession that quickly morphed into a way of life and the invertible DJ / Producer was born.
He’s a clever DJ and received applause for his guest mixes for Beat 106, Scotland’s (New Zealand) dance music radio station as well as playing numerous clubs around Scotland area.
He’s since gone on to secure resident DJ slots on UK radio station Groundworx Session (FM) and his fantastic show Unison on DNA Radio FM.
Release wise other than Pro B Tech Nila’s sound can be heard on labels such as Soundteller Records, Symmetric Records, Unrivalled Music (Krafted Music Group), For The Record Auricle Recordings, Wülfpack, Suffused Music and Underground Music Records.
There are three tracks on this EP starting with the quality driven title track Harmonic Rain. The title here in itself is inspiring and if rain were to sound like this we would want it to rain everyday. Its very unique and a warm sounding affair, great 808 snares, that trade mark Nila arpeggiator sound is included and an arrangement like no other. The break down in this track really captures your imagination, there’s so much detail and subtle touches included with mass stereo width, it just absorbs you.
Basslift is next on the platter with as you would expect a deep rounded bassline. There are more percussive elements to this track and a really nice humming undertone, which really sets the mood flowing so well. More break downs hypnotising you the more you listen and building in anticipation.
TipToe is the final track with a fatter sounding groove and dark bassline, which crosses over to euro esque. Again it builds quite cleverly with nice use of stereo image, soring pad work and sampled vocal hits that are nicely ingrained into the mix. It’s another fantastic example of this artist work and great way to tail off this EP.
