Following the release of the spacious Six Rooms EP on his own newly-minted Akita Club label, rhythmic master Nico returns to Midnight Shift to fuse the mind and body. On this latest missive, he crafts a space inhabited by wayward rhythms, urgent percussion and lead lines that feel like they’re about to cave under the pressure of The Groove. From the rain-brain dance of ‘The Driving Rain’ to the mental massage of ‘Elements’, a neat transition straddling both 104 bpm and 155 bpm, complete with directions for …something. Four explorations of nonplaces in the fourth world. Experiments in rhythms that come close to falling apart, held together by a backbone of bass. All tracks written, mixed and produced by Nicolas Guerrero Artwork by Olmo U. Aguirre. Layout by Gramrcy. Mastered and cut by Simon from The Exchange. Full-coloured printed sleeve with original artwork from Olmo U. Aguirre, finished with limited edition coloured vinyl.
