Nathan G – Duplicity EP


nathan-g-duplicity-ep.jpgLabel: Large Music Score: 7/10 This esteemed Chicago label has released some of the Windy City’s house music greats in its time, Luvbug label honcho Nathan G carrying the illustrious torch with aplomb on two tracks of a cool garage persuasion. Recently relocated to Berlin, while hailing from Melbourne, Nathan hit big last year with his The Glow album and Future Proof EP series, both on Large, whose acceptance alone is seal of approval enough. It‘s good to see the garage form, once in danger of blanding into cliché, getting booted into the 21st century [and seeing once startlingly house music being rediscovered like they do in rock ‘n‘ roll!]. ‘Fall For Me’ rides a nagging organ and skipping groove, draped in haunted strings nodding to early Detroit, while ‘Up Again’ is a bongo-splattered, bass-driven bubbler, topped with female ‘get up’ loop, deep house strings and rectum-booting stabs.  Matured, knowledgeable and guaranteed certain floor action. 

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
