Nhar- Afterburner EP
Following his numerous relases on prestigious leable such as Mobilee, Plak, Dirt Crew, Modelisme and Meerstief, the Swiss Label Mina is proud to announce that Nhar (France) will be bringing out thier very first relase, with 2 tracks and a remix by Ripperton & Masaya. A definite must in any dj's record bag !
Release date: May 2008
Nhar - Afterburner
Afterburner answeres the sound that Mina would like to impose. Light, airy and intertwined with melodies and glitches which all come together with a groovy bassline crowned by a voice much like an aquarelle painting.
Nhar - Dolido's Groove
More dance floor orientated, Nhar's use of vocals can again be compared to slight touches of an artist's brush on a canvas.Sensual pads frame a deep, peachy rythm.
Nhar - Dolido's Groove - Masaya & Ripperton's remix
Ripperton and Masaya's interpretation of Nhar's original track is essentially truly reperesnted, only self composed elements have been added.
Organic claps and voices progressively bring us to a climax which surprisingly don't end there, but grow from a stream into a river of soft intense sonancy.
