TUNE OF THE DAY – MR. BEATNICK – NUIT BLANCHE – DON’T BE AFRAID RECORDS
Taken from The Synthetes Trilogy Album
The Synthetes Trilogy Album
Since moving away from early experiments in MPC beat science, Nick Wilson has proved himself one of Britain’s best deep house producers. While his output is sporadic – much of the material here, for example, was released on three EPs between 2011 and 2013 – the quality is such that each successive 12″ has become a must-have. Deep, soulful, atmospheric and impeccably produced, his tracks – from the sweet bounce of “Synthetes” and fuzzy, jazz-flecked “Casio Romance”, to the tech-jazz fluidity of “Yacht On The Nile” and Detroit rush of “Savannah” – are never less than inspired. Collected together for the first time, with a smattering of new cuts, they sound better than ever. Recommended.
