Nicolay with The Hot At Nights – Shibuya Session EP (Audio) (Download) (2011)

The progression of producer/musician Nicolay has been very impressive, as he has graduated from the class of simply “making beats” and has entered the realm of true musicianship, where his latest collaborative project with The Hot At Nights is proof of his growth. This album of ambient instrumentals is truly a melting pot of sounds, as it can most be defined as an electric jazz fusion sound reminiscent of a contemporary George Duke or Weather Report.

Although the concept and sound of this album is not entirely new, it is a huge change of pace from what Nicolay’s sound usually is, and his most devoted of followers will be impressed with the versatility of this musician who at the beginning of his career was marginalized (as most hip hop producers) as a “beat maker”. Although this may be considered a different avenue for Nicolay, it can also be seen as much expected evolution, as he has always embraced constant change when it comes to his sound. Very drum heavy, and also synth heavy, this is an excellent download for anyone who enjoys mood music, as this will be a great soundtrack for a personal enjoyment. This EP is to promote Nicolay and The Hot At Nights US tour, so as you are enjoying and absorbing the abstract fusion, make sure you check them out when hey come to a city near you.
