“This single is the first from my new lo-fi house project. It’s about a psychedelic relationship.” – Harry Nathan
Harry Nathan came through over the Summer with some impressive tracks like “To The Limit” and his lovely EP Songs About Dreams About Her EP. He followed up with the delightful “Alright” and a music video with a love story between a sandwich and a croissant that’s hard not to love back. Now, he’s back again with a new track and an announcement. “Sweet Release” is the first single off Harry Nathan’s upcoming EP, which he’s calling a “lo-fi house project.” We’ll have to wait to see what that sounds like but we got a pretty good taste with “Sweet Release.” Opening with a very atmospheric feel, the muted bass soon takes over and develops into a jazzy, lo-fi house jam.
Nathan had a bit to say about the track and his inspiration for the upcoming EP:
“I loved house music growing up and have always been a fan of soul and disco. When I was 14, I wanted to mix like Roger Sanchez but couldn’t afford DJ gear, so I cross-wired three stereos to practise mixing. If I needed to slow one down, I would press pause twice really quickly.
When I got a regular gig as a wedding DJ, I was stoked just to use better gear and change the pitch. We had a little wedding consortium with some DJ friends from high school, but we were all really crazy about old-school house. When the bride and groom left, our friends would come and drink the leftover wedding booze whilst we went back to back mixing house classics.”
