Continuing along a path for sourcing fresh talent, Shadow Sanctuary brings you Nist. After previous collaborations with Elijah Collins and Eric Volta, his first solo release comes in the form of a two track EP with a remix from label boss: Dexter Kane. As the title of the EP suggests, these tracks both give not only a nod, but also a fist bump and a slap on the arse to Hip Hop of yesteryear. Brazen use of a sampler and some classic drum machine grooves merge the gap between styles perfectly.
Dexter's mix ups the tempo a little with a bit of an analogue work out. A scattering of stabs and licks dance round a tight, groove lead rhythm section.
