NRK front man Nick Harris rounds out 2010 for Fresh Meat with two tracky deep house cuts. In addition to his accomplishments with NRK, Nick has been busy releasing music on labels such as Mood Music and Night Grooves, including production and remix work for artists like Kris Wadsworth, Scope and David Durango. "Elementary" and "BizzaRIO" are restrained groovers with subtle builds and organic progressions working the dance floor and coming alive in the mix. Both tracks have moody vibes; "Elementary" with a DBX style lead and rolling percussion and "BizzaRIO" with haunting keys and a punchy insistent bass line.
Straight after finishing his critically acclaimed album for Fresh Meat, "Hip Shake Heartache" Audio Soul Project brings the HEAT with a massive and fun interpretation of "Elementary" that is sure to pack floors this winter. This remix has been driving dancers mad in Chicago. Evoking early MK, a Korg M1 organ, subtle acid lines and a commanding voice animate Mazi's remix, which also utilizes stabs and keys from the original.
Fresh Meat's Nathan Drew Larsen and Chicago born DJ and producer Samone Roberts team up as Restless Natives for their slow and funky rework of “BizzaRIO.” Replaying samples from the original in their MPC, the Natives bring the tempo down to 115 BPM and build the groove around spatial horn and piano samples, a stepping X3 bass line and various intriguing sounds from other hardware synths and effects, including a Moog Voyager, a DRM, a Memory Man and a Yamaha DX7.
