Nightwave

Nightlife

Heka Trax

Released: 1st December 2014 | 6 track house ep

Following April's 'Hit It' EP with Ghetto-tech legend DJ DEEON, Nightwave is seeing out the year with a more-melodic-than-usual collection of bangers inspired by the sounds of UK, Detroit and Chicago.

Lead tune 'Nightlife' sees Maya return to the melodic techno vibe she left with her 2011 Unknown To The Unknown EP, drawing influences from labels like Roule and UR, adding a few trademark kicks and shimmering synths to refit the feel to our own hyperactive age.

Tune 2 'Kiss Kat' is back in Nightwave's ghetto-tech kill zone, with a feature from Ashnikko,-a bad girl soundtrack with an empowered no bullshit message whist 'Birdland' is an homage to jazzy Detroit electro reminiscent of Mr De' and Kenny Larkin with dusty Rhodes chords and hard-hitting juke-tempo drums.

'Shut It Down' features TT The Artist, a prolific rapper from Baltimore who has released on Mad Decent, worked with Diplo, not to mention being sampled by J-Lo on 'Booty'. Nightwave flies back to the UK now to connect with a grime instrumental swing on this one for an after-dark heater.
