1. Clean Cotton
2. Deep Acting
Everybody In return in 2020 with a stellar maxi EP from Leipzig based Nova Casa. An artist with influences that range from smooth hip-hop, lounge, deep house, melancholic soul to classical 4/4 music. Their 6 tracker “Epsilon Crucis” covers a lot of ground with a unique style and pace.
This is a galactically inspired set of music, from the etheric synth work and glacial tempo of “Clean Cotton”, to the more dubbed out vibe of “Deep Acting”. There is a variety to this EP from the very start. Nova Casa has a sound with plenty of room for changing direction and offering up something a little different from what you might expect.
“Alliance” is a little more straight up, but the bassline has an intricate funk that elevates it to the next level. Destined as much for the club as it is at ease when listening at home. “Amdacha’s” clever use of the Piano and more traditional sounds mixed with tight electronic drums makes for a deep and meaningful journey.
Closing out this super-sized EP, we have two tracks that take things in two distinctly different directions – as we have come to expect. “Awakening” feels more Housey, with an edge of early Tensnake thrown in for good measure. A melodic groover that sets up the finale “Altarf” nicely. The final track itself is a mid tempo…slow mo chiller. Gorgeously proportioned and warmly produced whilst keeping the Nova Casa signature melodic edge. They are also featuring the edgy artwork from Turin based artist Ermanno Cavaliere, who creates something new and mesmerising through a collage made of everyday life fragments.
