Nail's 89:Ghost label continues apace with this new wedge of goodness from Logic Systems. The self-titled EP is the first we've heard of this particular producer, although it could just as easily be an alias for the boss himself. Whoever is behind the music, they should be thoroughly pleased with themselves. The quality and imagination that has been poured into these tracks is evident from the off - "Ariel" shimmers with its plush layers of synths and understated beat, while "S.C.A.M.P" gets some even more startling keys in the mix. The story is the same with "Z-Plane" & "Ultranet", weaving a masterful tale that adds perfectly to the 89:Ghost canon.
Going by many names but primarily known as Nail, Neil Tolliday has been on searing form since getting back into the deep house game after a much celebrated run of releases back in the 90s. His 89:Ghost label is providing much of the new wave of material, and on this particular EP he revives his The NG9 Project alias after a single on Robsoul in 2013. There's an irresistible micro house shuffle embedded into these tracks, with Nail's deft melodic touch scattered across the top to make for another essential, workable collection of jams for a more discerning crowd.
Nail's 89:Ghost label continues to march ahead with further musings on the mysterious creative realm between deep house and techno, which is a natural home for Tomoki Tamura. The Holic Trax boss man steps up with the solid four track Quiet Air Gun EP, and from the get go the quality is unmistakable. "Quiet Air Gun" is an alluring yet undeniably strange jam, with vocals from Moo only adding to the eerie, sensual tension. "Foggy Jungle" is more upfront with its tough beats n' bass exoskeleton, but between that scuffed combo there's ample room for subtle atmospheric touches as well. "DSC House" then brings the real peak time heat with its smoking samples and heavyweight rhythm section, but there's time for one more trip out with the sublime "Stars In The Morning".
