[A] Battletek - Budapest:
The 3rd installment of the Nu Dawn series returns with 3 brand new Liquid tracks. Opening the release is Dutch producer Battletek and his track Budapest. Inspired by a recent stay in the Hungarian capital, Battletek incorporates traditional instruments such as piano and violin to give the track a mellow and organic touch. The upbeat drums and classic rolling reece bass come together to form an uplifting and energetic combination. Whilst the plucked synth and futuristic haunting vocals, provide the track with a modern feel, equally at home on the dancefloor or a chilled environment.
[B] Skydata - Rhythm Kata:
U.S producer and Nu Venture Records newcomer Skydata presents his chilled Liquid Drum & Bass track Rhythm Kata. Greeted with mellow pads and a crisp drum presence to determine the flow of this chilled track. Then expertly combined with delicate strings accenting on and off, whilst emotional piano chords further enhance the overall atmosphere, with a warm bassline and silkily serene vocal sounds echoing throughout.
[C] Ground Unit - Stranger Things (Aardonyx Remix):
The original version of Stranger Things was taken from NVR057, Ground Unit's debut release on Nu Venture Records, entitled Animal EP. This remix stays true to the original through the use of the guitar, horns and piano to provide the main instrumentation. The vocal now becomes centre stage, shifting from the intro to the main body of the track. This is coupled with an urgent bassline and energetic drums to set the heart racing faster, plus a switch up in the second drop, with an alternative drum arrangement and bassline. Producing a feel good summer festival vibe, with an uplifting vocal and a playful horn section, whilst the counter melodies help to create a rich musical sound palette.
