Nick Devon - So Addicted EP
Two tracks, four mixes in total, and every one a winner. "Deep and dark bass-led house," is what the hype sheet calls So Addicted itself, and I won't argue. I will just point out though that a) label boss Al Bradley's 3am Deep Remix is the dog's nuts and b) no, it's not the Mainline sample you might be expecting – it's actually got a spoken male vocal, with vocodered 'answer' vox to die for.
But speaking of samples, over on the B Nothing does very strange things with the vocal from People Hold On… or is it just the lyric, cos I'm not sure if it's a resung male version of the same, or just a very pitched-down sample? Either way, this second big, echo-y monster can also be found lurking in a canine scrotal sack near you… and it comes with a deeper refix from Pete Dafeet too so we really are getting a bit spoilt here.
Out: This week
About: This comes of course on 3am Recordings, who can be found on Facebook and Soundcloud. Nick Devon is from Greece, and I'd also just like to point out that I don't think I've ever typed the words "canine scrotal sack" before.
I'm gonna try not to make a habit of it. You never know where these things will end.
