It’s time for a new double feature; but this time from the same artist!
Nachactiv is a Swiss electronica hero, and first out is his rather elegant, deep production “Strawberry Jam”.
Nachactiv shared with us that “I worked and tweaked over 4 years (with long breaks) on this track”. Sometimes good stuff needs to stay in the hopper for a while!
The depth is endless in this one. Deep, but comfortable. And groovy, in that subtle, controlled way.
The second track, “Hang Flow” is a collaboration between Nachtaktiv and Kühn, and holds much of that same dubby, lazy but fundamentally groovy atmosphere:
What’s particularly cool with this track is the use of acoustic instruments, steel drum and didgeridoo. Adds an absolutely lovely organic layer to the production.
It’s also interesting, the contrast between the rather dark electronic track below the much lighter organic layers. Creates a span. Excellent.
These two recent releases from this Swiss gentleman really do impress. They both hold that same confience in the groove that I have talked about in earlier posts, that so typically comes with experience. The rest of his catalogue is also well worth exploring, should you like these two tracks.
Nachtaktiv is an act worth following.
These two tracks were added to our playlists “Progressive Underground” and “The Deep Lounge” respectively. And of course, both tracks are found on our “Beatradar Selections” along with all our other selected tracks.
