    Review: Nachtbraker – Janus EP


    OzClubbers

    The Berlin based family that is named Dirt Crew takes up new infants with every release and is ever growing while celebrating ten years of quality releases this year. In 2004 James Flavour and Break 3000 launched the imprint after releasing their first EP’s “Cleaning Up The Ghetto part 1+2” as the identically named duo Dirt Crew.

    The list of releases they built up in the meanwhile is impressive. A grasp of the last couple of months includes artists like Detroit Swindle, Downtown Party Network, Waze & Odyssey, Chimera and Tigerskin amongst others. Quality after quality house and deephouse release sees the light of day. The label offers a place for new talent but also also favours the established order as written above.

    Speaking about new studio talent, Dirt Crew got hold of Nachtbraker for its newest cut: “Janus EP”. Maurits Verwoerd aka Nachtbraker used to have some small releases as Mousique but now solely focuses on his Nachtbraker project. And with success, with previous releases on Detroit Swindle’s prolific Heist imprint, Apparel Music and Piekup records, his trademark sound is starting to grow.

    This four-track EP plus one bonus digital marks Nachtbrakers’ trademark slow funky and jazzy deep house sound. The first track ‘Alright’ is a perfect mood setter. A warm and easy piano riff combined with 707 claps and hats, the track takes you on a short fantasy travel where around 4:30 minutes you are forced in some dreamy turns only before getting back to the original loop and giving you that old school house feeling.

    Follow up is ‘Braun’, again a fine house cut. Sunshine and positive vibes in an infectious and spacious groove with small shoutouts to Nachtbraker’s love for Detroit synths and chords. Title track ‘Janus’ is the first-class beauty on this release, a true gem. Downtempo, superfunky, a catchy baseline that builds up towards the middle of the track where Nachtbraker stops the drive for a couple of bars before hitting it two gears up, getting you straight up to house music heaven.

    Next up is ‘Warme Kachel’ (Hot stove translated from Dutch), a deepified low key synth that opens up throughout the track and giving you more funk bit by bit by a another perfect base riff. The track is indeed full of warmth, no stove needed here at all actually.

    Final of is a digital bonus track named ‘I Rest My Case” the deephouse sound like it feels familiar in 2014, long chords, easy baseline, oldschool feel and a tough kick.
    Keep an eye out for Nachtbraker during one of his shows at ADE in October!

      So, as the dust has settled on our recent Attic event headlined by Laurence Guy—our fourth instalment—I am making available my recorded set from the evening.
      I opened up shop for the first hour on this occasion, so, accordingly; this is very much a lower, slower effort—105 BPM upwards—though, in doing so, I did my best to retain a lot of the melodic elements that make up our "Attic sound".
      I really enjoyed putting this one together and kicking off the night in a method that I saw fit—and what an evening it turned out to be!
      I hope you enjoy this one, all the same.
      Comments and feedback—and if you really enjoy it, bookings—are always welcome!
      'till next time!

      Transcript:
      Wormie and Lulu: We're here to review I need you by Jroll, Vovii, and Wknd Warrior, coming out on Central Station Records tomorrow (Fri 23rd Feb) LuLu: I've been listening to it and god, its a great track Wormie: Yeah I thorougly enjoyed it MJ: I really loved it, the beat and everything, and i loved how the second drop wasn't the same as the first drop. I know its something that many many of my friends would totally vibe to W: Its starts off with the bass, thats what got me hooked M: I loved the melody as well, the only thing that would amp that up more would be a female voice, not all throughout the song, just every now and then, but its still.... i loved it L: Yeah, the intro and outtro, its puts the song in such a different perspective, you don't expect it to drop into that heavy ass bass M: Yeah but even the drop itself, i didn't expect that, i was expecting it to be a harder drop than that, but it was still brilliant the way it all just worked together W: I personally think its an easy song to freestyle to L: Definitely M: Yeah definitely W: I was busting away to it throughout the song. Its going to be a dope song L: Freestylers are going to love it! W: Its smooth and easy listening, thats the best part about it from the start to the finish. The only thing I can really fault about the whole song is the outtro goes a bit too long, but thats all L: Yeah but it does cut the track too M: The good thing about that is, you can bust out solo's to it or its good to just listen to also just how it is, its versatile like that and thats a great sign of a great track L: I can 100% hear this on the radio in the future W: I could see me dancing to it in a nightclub after a few beverages too (all laugh) W: JRoll, Vovii, and Wknd Warrior, you have outdone yourselves with this one L: I give this one a 10 out of 10 W: Yeah, it gets a 10 out of 10 from me too M: 10 out of 10 from me too
