Nadja Lind’s high flying 2017 continues with pace. A busy studio schedule is paired with heading up the Lucidflow imprint, punctuated with countless journeys to perform DJing duties around the globe. There is no rest for the wicked, though, as she takes up position on Lucidflow release #143 with a sweet and effective three tracker.
While obviously known for her heavy dub leanings in both a production and A&R capacity, we forget the debt owed to the precision house techniques as made popular by esteemed sources such as the Perlon and [a:rpia:r] imprints. On ‘Teufelssee’, we get to see this to full effect, all spun through Nadja’s keen eye for dancefloor rocking beats.
The title track leads by example, every staccato element intricately placed and generating movement through the subtle shifts in emphasis – be it the near mechanical churn of the bassline, the off-kilter circuit bent effects or the layering of percussive elements.
Going up a notch in intensity, ‘Kobold’ goes full throttle with a two minute stuttering percussive intro. From there, we drop into some mutant funk with whip cracking finger snaps. It’s a wild ride – part madcap dash through a city with sirens blaring, part death defying ghost house rollercoaster.
Finishing off, ‘Unwesen’ uses lullaby melodies that flourishes into a fountain of emotion, providing a fitting send off for the release. It’s a perfect track for an after the storm moment, releasing tension and rubbing sore muscles in all the right places.
