Review: Could Nasser Baker be the next huge talent unearthed by Objektivity? We certainly think so. He is one of the freshest and most promising talents of 2018. Growing up in New Jersey, he was introduced to house legend Dennis Ferrer and that's where he finds himself today on his imprint. Here he teams up with Yulia Niko, who is best known for her creative and diverse techno sound. Starting her career as a DJ in Sochi, Russia, she immediately found her love with the underground electronic music in NYC and releasing on Get Physical and Crosstown Rebels. "Someone I'm Not" (feat Debby Coda) is a bumping bass driven excursion in afterhours tech house that's perfectly fine for the warm-up too. Nb's Stin Drums up next is a handy dub version as well.
Review: Two very fine house jams here from Newcastle lad Richy Ahmed. With not a remix in sight. Objektivity clearly feel the two tracks are strong enough to stand up on their own - and they are! 'Work Me' is quite pacey by today's standards, and harks back to the mid-90s glory days of NYC house with its insistent bass riff, squelchy stabs and treated male "work me" vocal, while 'Gotta Have It' looks to the Windy City for inspiration, with stabby piano chords from the Marshall Jefferson school of thought and, by way of a vocal, a single line from Sound Wave's 1991 Strictly Rhythm cut 'Gotta Have You'. Outstanding.
