G-Man & Nadja Lind
Revered electronic music veteran Gez Varley AKA G-Man teams up with Lucidflow label boss and Klartraum producer Nadja Lind for a superb 4 track EP of stripped organic techno come house….
Gez Varley AKA G-Man has been a key player on the electronic music scene for over20 years, recording as LFO in the late eighties and early nineties for Warp and going on to build a solo career recording forthelikesofForce Inc, K7, Wir and ofcoursehis own GMR Records. Varley became acquainted with Lucidflow label owner and Klartraum producer, Nadja Lind when she recently took on remix duties for the G-Man classic ‘El Jem’. The two hit it off musically and a collaboration was soon on the cards, leading to the recordings of this first EP, entitled ‘G-Catz’ (apparently the pair are both big fans of feline company).
The EP opens up with the wonderfully heady ‘Purr’, a stripped yet organic sounding slice of techno that is reminiscent of classic Basic Channel. A subtle pulsing loop runs over taught percussion and swirling FX creating a deep hypnotic vibe that is truly sublime.
Next up we continue the cat the medtitling with the excellent ‘Meow’, a tightly produced piece of techno/house fusion that builds a solid groove around tough drums,‘purring’ keystabs and monophonic bass, simple, understated and quite brilliant.
The third cut sees Varley and Lind deliver the brilliant ‘CatNap’, a beautifully paced piece of rolling deep techno that uses subtlety and restraint to produce a marvelous piece of electronica that has a tripped out, heads down feel.
To finish things off the duo turn a little darker with ‘Ball of Fur’, a mesmerizing piece of techno with a slightly menacing air, yet the same deft touch of production that makes this whole EP so outstanding, pure quality!
Apparently Varley and Lind have another EP in the pipeline, and if this is anything to go by then we are truly in for a further treat.These recordings were all written and recorded remotely, with the two producers bouncing tracks back and forth between their respective studios, but it is clear that there’s a real musical chemistry here; long may it last!
‘G-Catz’ by G-Man & Nadja Lind is released on Lucidflow on 9th September 2011.
