Nick Curly – Helter Skelter (Truesoul)

“Truesoul” continues its infectious impact with a new “Nick Curly” single.

Nick Curly

For anyone who doesn’t know “Truesoul” is the sister label to the powerhouse called “Drumcode”. Its “Adam Beyer’s” output for the housier influenced side of music but a label that really switches the boundaries very well. Each release is of pure quality and offers something different that equals something unique of its own and intern is very fitting for a “Nick Curly” release.

“Nicky Curly” has an artist and DJ has really set his mark over recent years with an influx of productions that have featured in many DJs record boxes. He has the ability to cross connect all the dots with different styles but compounds them in a modern exhibition that could only be him.

He has been a regular feature at the very unique “KEHAKUMA” night at space in Ibiza and it was a real treat on the eardrums with his mix compilation for the same brand.

So what can we expect from a “Nick Curly” release, well one of his signature qualities is the electronic funkiness he injects into his music and that’s quite evident here.

This two tracker kicks into action with the title track “Helter Skelter” which starts off in a warm drum infused fashion. Rolling rhythms that filter into a fantastic dark but also funky bassline with sliding ascendency. Its quite minimal in its part inclusion but very affective drawing you in the more you listen and powerful when played loud. Further atmosphere Fx and Padded sounds are subtly used but really add the overall atmosphere.

Next up is the title “go” which personally I feel would also be well suited on the big brother label “Drumcode”. This starts with punch from the off with an abstract percussive element that really has you locked into the groove as you listen further. Its more techno induced than the prior track but worked equally as well as break beats are introduced with more of the “Nick Curly” style hypnosis pulling you in.

Another fantastic out put from both “Truesoul” and “Nick Curly” alike”
