Various Artists - Nervous Brooklyn Sessions – Vol 1
New York’s Nervous kick-starts 2019 with a four track Various Artists compilation from Disco Town (Angelo Ferreri & Moon Rocket), Mark Lower and Sue Avenue entitled ‘Nervous Brooklyn Sessions – Vol 1’.
Throughout its respected 27-year history, Nervous has cemented its reputation as one of dance music’s most iconic labels, releasing pivotal output from house legends like Louie Vega, Kenny Dope and Todd Terry, not to mention fostering numerous emerging talent from New York and beyond.
This year Nervous rented and hosted Angelo Ferreri, Moon Rocket, Mark Lower and Sue Avenue at a studio in Williamsburg for three full days. These were open for 24 hours with invitiations extended to local talent – the result is ‘Nervous Brooklyn Sessions’. Volume 1 inaugurates the series, featuring a collaboration between Angelo Ferreri and Moon Rocket, French producer Mark Lower, as well as Nite Grooves artist Sue Avenue joined by New York’s DJ Romain.
Disco Town kick things off with infectious disco samples, jazzy chords and uplifting strings in ‘Got What You Need’ before Nurvous regular Mark Lower’s ‘I Wanna Be With You’ delivers funk-infused grooves, a luscious sax line and resonating kicks.
Sue Avenue – a project by Belgium’s Pieter Santens – offers up smooth flute waves, warm low end and revitalising keys in ‘Brooklyn By Night’ before closing the EP with a delicious house cut by means of ‘Let There Be House’ featuring New York’s DJ Romain which delivers soulful atmospheres, indulgent sound design and enticing vocals throughout.
‘Nervous Brooklyn Sessions – Vol 1’ is out on Nervous 1st February 2019.
