Grooves Pt. 2 by Nnatn
Italian artist Nnatn cooks up for more essential underground sounds on his Grooves Pt. 2 EP for Night Vibez Records.
This is Nnatn's third fantastic EP of the year following an earlier outing on this label with countryman DJ Beens and the first part of this Grooves series. All his music combines his long-standing love of house, disco, and afro sound across the ages. He has had support from the likes of Jamie Jones, Mr.V, and Robert Owens, and is now back with five more essential tracks.
The EP opens in heartwarming fashion with a gorgeous vocal house cut. It has booming kicks and crisp claps that bring a timeless feel while a female voice brings the soul. "Love Me Down" throws it back to the nineties with a classic beat sample. In this version, the bass is slowed down to a funky effect and the chords imbue the groove with a Balearic warmth.
The superb "Party Time" has a cozy basement feel with its jazzy chords and rubbery drum work. A tender male vocal adds an all-important hook and "The One" soars to fresh heights with a crispy Chicago house groove, lush marimba melodies, and another epic diva vocal that melts the heart. "Troubles" rounds things out with more stylish deep house sounds, grinding bass, and emotive vocals, but this time with a more direct beat.
