We’ve all got ears. The luckiest among us have 2, but very few people have ‘the’ ear. Think Stephen Kings ‘The Shining’ but set in a basement club. Today’s feature showcases one of the few producers in this genre with ‘the’ ear, he goes by the humble moniker Nicholas. Living in Perugia in Italy his sound isn’t typically associated with Italian styles of Disco and House. Shunning cheesy synths and faster tempos for deeper more soulful tracks has always been his trademark. He was generous enough to answer a few questions and put together an exclusive showcase of his work, both released and unreleased. Expect to feel a lot cooler than you are while listening to this. Its a mix full of classic house style vocals with an inclination towards American soul tracks of days gone by, chopped finely, and poured over confident and big deep house beats. Nicholas’s music is in no rush, the mixing is patient and his grooves seem to simmer perfectly.
