New York’s Alan Nieves makes a return to South Of Saturn with ‘My Man EP’ this month. Following releases on elrow, Circus and Deeperfect, Alan lines up his second release for Lee Foss’ imprint, bringing a package of house tracks to the table.
Lead track, ‘My Man’, opens with stripped back, regimented drums, met with a deep bassline, muffled vocals and piano melodies, leading into ‘Kinfolk’, which sees Nieves take a more maximalist approach, bring clicky percussion and synth licks to the forefront over an upfront 4/4 pattern.
Closing cut ‘2 Steps Back’ looks to the after-party, delivering an hypnotic groove over affected vocals for a low key yet probably highly danceable affair, rounding out another release for the label.
Alan Nieves ‘My Man EP’ drops on South Of Saturn on 23 April.
