DescriptionThe brilliant Turquoise Blue imprint returns this October with Scarlett Nina's 'The End' backed with outstanding remixes from Tone Of Arc, Special Case and David K. Originating from France's west coast and now residing in Paris, Scarlett Nina has been building a body of works as of late and is currently in the midst of preparing a live showcase of his deep, dark bass-driven productions. Scarlett's debut 'Sunday Mood' on the reputable Apparel Music last year saw the start of an undoubtedly fruitful career for this 21 year old. This new EP opens with title cut 'The End', embodying an organic essence, the track is built around a moody guitar hook, intricately delayed and reverberated to create a powerful atmospheric depth. Nina then applies a storytelling spoken word vocal, pitched down and layered on top of the trippy atmosphere and sharp 4/4 drum programming, further adding to its dark nature. Delicate complexities such as reverse reverb and commodious reverb tails further fuel the tracks energy. No.19 Music artist Tone Of Arc aka Derrick Boyd of Dead Seal fame, offers up a remix of 'The End', applying his signature melodic deepness to the original cut with sensual electric piano licks, a bouncy, playful bass-line and quirky synth stabs. The track steadily blossoms, easing into an amalgamation of tones that create an ever-evolving dynamic. Russian trio Special Case, notably known for their work with the likes of Culprit, Souvenir and Akbal Music deliver a wonderfully fresh outlook, manifesting the sound of UK Bass music with a unique dusky essence. The acidic bass notes act as the driving force here as the warbling modulation and subtle delays maintain a captivating interest for the listener. Next up 'Who Am I To Disagree', drops the tempo slightly and encompasses a distinctive airy atmosphere. There's a running theme in Nina's productions here with the low-pitched vocals and gritty electronic bass tones again taking control, the French producer applies a striking amount of deft touches to his tracks with exquisite subtle modulations and minute delays being introduced every eight bars, a sign of Scarlett's diligence in the studio. To close the release fellow Parisian David K reworks 'Who Am I To Disagree', with a reputable back catalogue that's seen his cuts released on Cocoon, Robsoul, Freak N Chic and Tsuba its no surprise to find here an intense heavy hitter, built around resonant tom tones, stripped percussion and ethereal background aesthetics. The track slowly progresses to its central point where K introduces a classic house chord melody that carries out the rest of the track cleverly altering its envelope along the way.
