If you like things deep, dark and brooding then this excellent release from Nitri on Plush should cut the proverbial mustard. A spaced out intro of crackling white noise and sonorous atmospherics swiftly progresses into a soundscape carved out from snapping snares and moody minimalism. As the track moves on, we are plunged deeper and deeper into the unknown, with only a glimmer of bassline pressure to guide us. Murky and meditative, this one track single provides plenty of food for thought.
Brazillian drum & bass prodigy Nitri may only have 137 Facebook fans at the time of writing, but among those who've already shown their support are Andy C, DJ Hype, Bryan Gee, Twisted Individual, Crissy Criss, DBR UK, DJ Hazard, Fathom Audio and Random Movement. Not many producers need more fingers and toes to count their big name supporters this early on in their career but Nitri is something different. He's a Sao Paulo resident whose music errs on the darker edge of D&B, leaning heavily on the industrial sounds of the early days. Both tracks wouldn't be out of place at a Renegade Hardware night which goes to show - if you create what you love, the accolades will come. Flipside track "Route" meanwhile is a low-end minimal hurter. Watch out for Nitri, he's expecting big things and we don't blame him.
Brazilian producer and prolific tune-making machine Nitri has been busy again - what's new? - creating an EP for Horizons which bridges the gap between sweet, musical, jazz-influenced drum & bass from the beautiful South American coast and dark, stepping rhythms that belong somewhere far colder. Featuring the soulful vocal talents of Canada's own Grimm and a heady, break-fuelled remix from Dispatch regular DLR, this EP isn't your usual collection of liquid rollers. Representing the finest in the current sounds of Brazil, this is fresh from the ever-changing scene of Sao Paulo direct to your system - you can't say fairer than that.
Horizons have a reputation for putting out only the finest dark and dirty underground drum & bass around, whilst Brazilian bassmonger Nitri has been showing his hand for some time now, with remixes by the likes of Break and Naibu already under his belt. This time he rises to the forefront of his own accord, pulling out the big guns with seriously deep rolling bass and precise percussion to set dancefloors alight thanks to Amoss on tight as cluck remix duties. "Laser Gun" on the flip is a crisp minimal destroyer, ramping up the pressure with clear cut precision and sustained pads. Get your teeth in.
