Sare Havlicek

The Diamondback EP

Nang

Released: 19th November 2012 | 6 track nu-disco ep

Sare Havlicek is back on Nang following the release of his second full-length album 'Escape Machine' back in June. This time it's a lean selection of variations and edits of the his track 'Diamondback', a 2-part nu-disco opus laden with real strings and serious groove. Parts 1 & 2 we're included on 'Escape Machine'; this EP sets out to expand on these ideas and unravel the mystery of parts 3, 4 & 5.

To those familiar with the album, parts 1 and 2 (now together as one single track) won't be a surprise. To those who haven't, Sare's slinky nu-disco arrangements and strings are bound to take breaths away. Part 3 is a bit more DJ friendly with picked guitar and kick drums beating out the intro before some punctuating string motifs kick in and the guitars take the reins.

Part 4 hints at soulful disco-inflected house music with its piano chops and stomping bass line. Part 5 switched up the vibe with some classic walking bass, some propulsive percussion and a down-tuned vocal that rides the central groove. the string phrases are never far away either!

The package rounds off with 'Pure Sin' ft. Lara Love. The tempo is brought down a few beats for this vocal led number. The brassy synths keys are driving forces here, helped along with some neat little production tricks.
