Nikki Nair 'Breaks ‘N’ Pieces Vol. 18' (Breaks 'N' Pieces)

Nikki Nair never misses the mark with his dynamic and versatile sound, effortlessly blending a plethora of genres into one singular mind-altering composition; deservedly becoming synonymous with the forward-thinking era of hybridized electronic music. Now on Breaks ‘N’ Pieces, Nair recalls his signature sound in the form of weighty bass & breaks; while continuing to twist the templates of old to create something truly unique.

 

Nikki opens things up with ‘Way Of The Void’ showing off his talent for impeccable drum programming and bass-driven dance music; demonstrating how only a few carefully selected elements can create maximum impact. ‘Pop Music’ is an idiosyncratic cross-over between Nair’s far-reaching influences, fondly reminiscent of one of his stand-out releases ‘Power Tools’ on Dirtybird in 2020. This time there’s an even greater sense of flexibility, as heavily manipulated sounds cause havoc across dance-floor sound systems.

 

‘Unit’ utilizes gritty vocal samples and squelching bass that jump from your eardrums straight to your toes, before Nair shares another string to his bow, going far left with the minimal inspired ‘Trackiing’. Expert use of panning creates a 3D effect, encompassing a 4/4 kick-drum and percussive elements in forward-thinking motion. The EP comes to a close with ‘The Person Or Persons’ a multi-layered story beamed down from another universe; tales clouded in mystery, personality and the creativity we’ve come to expect from one of electronic-music's most eclectic artists.
