Nyvs returns to Monog with the superb four track EP entitled The A and the Alpha. This one comes after he debuted back in the Summer of 2015 on Monog’s 50th release alongside Sugark and their Arco-Iris EP. Prepare yourselves for some beautifully constructed minimal sounds. Iuiny intros with a nice thumpy kick drum that packs a massive punch and remains the driving force throughout. The kicks are joined by cool crispy hats and raspy sounds that create a dark minimal vibe. Sharp voices deliver a surreal narrative to the sound as various sounds come and go. Space age synths also play a part in this superb, deep and grooving track, excellent stuff.
Kipari sets off with a nice pounding kick drum as a deep minimalistic bass fills the low end. A dark chanting vocal comes through and sits perfectly within the lush tones of the track. Cool percussions are scattered throughout and provide a steady rhythm as the groove goes deeper with each layer. Top notch stuff for a late night session.
Assist is the epitome of a deep and raw minimal groove. Chunky kicks and sparse percussions deliver a solid workout while a pulsing low end bass drives the groove deeper underground. Soft piano chords fade into the sound and are accompanied by some very cool vocals. A wonderful display that will definitely turn a few heads.
Digital Foam delivers a real smooth, lush deep groove that carries sultry tones which emanate from soft organs. A well crafted percussion section adds cool rhythms to the sound, but it’s the darker tones that keep you locked on for the duration. Curious FX create colourful textures and blend perfectly with the synths and keys. A fantastic slice of deep techno you will not want to miss.
