Nico Mendez returns to his Johnny Johnny label with a heavy-duty EP


Nico Mendez returns after his hiatus with a heavy-duty EP to spearhead 2021 his first release of the year on Johnny Johnny.

‘The Trip’ EP is a package put together with weighty momentum at the forefront! The lead track ‘Do It’ is coated with signature Nico quips that eventually open up to a full-frontal assault of acid house energy. Layered with a catchy vocal hook sample this one definitely peak time pitter-patter. 

Our premiere ‘M-Train’ carries a whole other acid house steeze. Self-sustained clever grooves and subtle manipulation of resonance and envelops let this track keep on giving effortlessly. With a simple siren sample and field recordings of Glasgow’s infamous subway system. 

Nico’s pieced together a seriously efficient tune. To bring the EP off Nico’s has recruited long time and close friend Little By Little for remix duties. Jean’s own flavours and powerful energy really brings a whole new peak to the lead track ‘Do It’. Without altering the main samples to much LBL cleverly added even more peak-time power with a thudder of a Techno edit.

Check out ‘M-Train’ on Data Transmission today and grab it on Beatport.

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.
