Nickbee digs deep and delivers with this release on Horizons Music and comes up trumps once again. Title track "Human Philosophy" is a wonderful slice of understated cool with eerie, unnerving atmospherics, excellently engineered beats and whirring b-line below. It bridges the gap between underground and minimal and dark and techy with ease. The accompanying "Space Philosophy" is another cracking cut with a spaced out sci-fi element, it's snarling snares and punchy, terse drums add a sense of aggression to the piece which is just way too enticing. A stunning release here!
A couple of killer cuts here from Nickbee on Horizons. Getting the party started is "Rush"; with a flurry of tripping breaks, woozy atmospherics and humming b-line below, it swiftly falls into a tidy little bassline roller with a hint of menace and grouchy squelches. Accompanying this is the Amoss remix of Nickbee & Malk's collaborative effort "Human Race" which is a super-sharp smasher of a tune with taut, terse breaks, whomping bass and a late night sleuth-like vibe. Get to know this D&B heads, and get to know it quick.
