Nos Classics is a new label run by Tartelet mainstay Uffe, based in Copenhagen. Following his own EP to launch the imprint last year, their second is from DJ and visual artist Vktr, who utilises classy samples and tough percussion to deliver a distinct house sound.
Our choice cut, ‘Breakfast’, is minimal in design with percussion subtle enough to allow the melancholic vocal to take centre stage. An uncomplicated chord progression and slightly off-beat bassline roll along in the background, complemented by a irregular lo-fi flute. The result is a simple but effective dance track that nods its head to US house heritage while retaining a pensive European new wave atmosphere.
Way He Walks EP is out 25th April – buy from Oye Records.
