Premiere: Nikki Nair – Stotch

Next up on Banoffee Pies‘ busy schedule is a return to their original series, this time for a helping of heavy bass and intricate rhythms courtesy of Nikki Nair.

First making his debut in 2018 with a track contribution for Partial Magic’s Hot Take V/A, the Knoxville producer followed it up last year with four solo EPs for the likes of Scuffed, Discovery Recordings, TRAM Planet and Gobstopper Records. His first of 2020, Number One Slugger, shows his knack for playing with bass across the five tracks, from the down right gnarly to that subtle pulsing low end.

The latter mood is at play on today’s premiere ‘Stotch’, which closes out the EP perfectly. A soft sound bed of reverb and celestial pads swell below, welcoming chiming keys, distant licks of percussion and dulcet vocal notes that float endlessly in and out.

Number One Slugger is out on 3rd April 2020 – grab your copy from Banoffee Pies.
