Nick Höppner | A Peck And A Pawn | EP | o-ton 49
Returning for a fourth EP on the label, Berlin's Nick Höppner continues his exploration into an ever-developing and rich production vocabulary.
The rough goes with the smooth in perfect harmony on „A Peck And Pawn“. Höppner's unique sound design leads to a dense wash of sound sparkling with airy details and his characteristic sub bass subtleties, as the whole track gels together in a pushing modern house triumph.
The spaced out and traveling „She Parked Herself“ is a real fusion of the many influences behind the producer's inspiration. Bubbling percussion and pretty melodic structures fuse with a melting analog bassline in this high-tech and positive jam.
With its heavy bass and late-night atmospheres „Swivel Flick“ slows the pace in a warm, dubbed and droning thinkpiece that is just as cinematic as it is direct for the club. Jostling just beneath the surface you'll find a wealth of details that really shows off Nick's talent and dedication to a non-standard groove.
