The elusive artist Nøkken has just released a new self-titled 10 track LP, out on the label Polymath. Here's his ten tracks that he loves nothing more than to listen to whilst falling off bikes, and a quick insight into the new release:
A shape-shifting water spirit, with the ability to transform into anything in pursuit of luring prey to its depths. Sonically conceptual, warm, classic-inspired and hardware-enriched palette with roots in 90’s Detroit style electronic music.
Stephen Brown - The Year Zero
Can never get enough of this filtered, resonant stab. Oofftttt!
Mouse On Mars - Kompod
Curious, wobbly and full of intrigue.
Efdemin - Some Kind Of Up And Down Yes
Classic efdemin vibes …. loopy, wonky and pushing.
Honeydropp - Sillyth
Because Sillyth is how you feel when you fall off your bike.
Wax - 3003B
Oos Ons ….. so insistent on it’s groove.
Deepchord - Immersion I
Polarising elements; up the tempo and slow LFO pads …. sign me up for the IMMERSION
Move D & Benjamin Brunn - On The Magic Bus
Because that’s how your going to get to work when you fall off your bike and break your clavicle.
Auscultation - Lost You In The Fog
The pads a delightfully saturated and hypnotic, transports me too somewhere beyond.
RX-101 - Dopamine
Deep, dreamy and cosmic …. how I like my sleep.
High Tide - Time Unlimited
Unapologetic italo goodness. Love how these records were never over-produced and still had some grit.
