The label’s first official release back in Feb 2010 “Square One” EP from London producer Mosca was an 8-track deep statement of intent from NS. With its snap synth-line, broken drums and rolling bassline, “Square One” sums up a year of genre-obliterating experimentation in one.
On the B-side, “Nike” is 10-minute long epic that sveltly builds, sneaking out of a mid-tempo intro to drop as a autotuned UK techno banger.
The digi EP also comes with a 7-minute Club Edit of “Nike” at a fixed tempo, for functional club situations.
The package is completed by five “Square One” remixes: UK funky hero Roska applies his gutter house technique; Bristol’s Julio Bashmore goes big-room with his “Longhorn” remix; Greena‘s high-pressure percussive mix sweats it out; Night Slugs label bosses Bok Bok and L-Vis 1990 contribute a mix each.
