“My EE set is a dedication to early dance classics that inspired me to get into production and DJing. I tried to get a bit of everything in there-from Detroit to Chicago but I also threw in a couple of new tunes by Strip Steve, SCNTST and Addison Groove. Making the mix was a real treat for me as I rarely play this kind of set these days apart from my night Nightrave in Glasgow maybe.”
Since starting her label Heka Trax last October, Nightwave has been busy releasing her own material as well as running her club night Nightrave.
Recently remixed Mark Archer’s rave classic ‘Armageddon‘ for Balkan Vinyl and is preparing her next Heka Trax release featuring Chicago legend DJ Deeon due out in March. Next Nightrave at La Cheetah Glasgow is on February 21st.
Nightwave – Luxor EP (w/ Boomkat Exclusive Mix)
**Includes Boomkat exclusive remix from Big Dope P** Nightwave skews Footwork, electro and London bass styles on a long-come follow-up to that ace UTTu via her own label, Heka Trax. It’s a hi-tech funk party in five parts, leaning in with the trapped-out dubstep-to-techno mutation of ‘Amethizz’ and rollin’ up with the diced Indian classical vocals of ‘Vimana’ on a proper spicy three-step tip. ‘Luxor’ is the most forward of the bunch, whirring percussions and fibrillating vocal chops through a hybrid of double time footwork and garage swing, whilst ‘Go Hard’ and ‘Rave Hard’ switch between power-surge electro-techno and ‘ardcore futurism with gleeful abandon. Really strong, wicked stuff, tipped to fans of Deft, Rustie, Mark Pritchard.
