About this item

Antinote's assault on clubland continues this week as the Parisian label follow D.K.'s dreamy retro-inspired 12" with a rugged and rocking EP of contemporary club sounds from Nathan Melja. "Karibuni Music" is the Parisian producer's debut for his local boutique label, and on the strength of these three system smashers, it's going to be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
Clattering percussion, restless sub bass and expansive pads rule the roost on opener "Deadrums", a UK-influenced hybrid of house, techno and bass music that could easily slot into a Hessle set. Warp-style bleeps, R&S ecstacy and a Bristolian bottom end, all twisted into an ever changing arrangement? Sounds mega. "Angels" offers a breather for any tiring warehouse crowd, soothing soles with warm bass and a subtle electro rhythm while the predictably celestial synth washes cleanse your synapses from above. Finally "Candy" powers along in ruffneck mode, all electro snap, boisterous bass and gangsta samples duking it out until the radio friendly synth motif prompts clubwide gun fingers. NTS vibes right here.

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: Antinote continue bringing the dancefloor voodoo, following up that hot DK release with this three tracker from Nathan Melja. Fractured electro, extreme bass weight and warehouse clatter on a UK influenced club 12".
