Release : Fear of Flying Recordings_Various Artists Volume 3

Nail provides the lead track for FOF’s latest vinyl only excursion – originally produced in the same time period as the classic tracks on the ‘Ode Rammel’ reissue ep earlier in the year, ‘Glazed’ lay dormant on one of Nail’s DATs for many years before being rediscovered and given it’s first airing now on FOF. Chunky roughed up house beats are the order of the day here, a real peak time groove. New talent ‘Harry McCanna’, resident at London’s infamous ‘Undersound’ nights, debuts with ‘Act 1’, a beautifully subtle bassline driven groove that rises above the pack with it’s super warm pad lending the track a warm and fuzzy hypnotic edge. Romanian talent ‘Zece’ kicks off the flipside with the most contemporary offering; a breakbeat laden groove with a fx laden vocal snatch underpinned by that all important b-line whilst ‘Sonodab’ rounds things off with a beautifully deep and melodic slice of electro on ‘Brown Study’, the percussive elements giving rise to a hazy melodic pattern for those early hour excursions.
