EATBRAIN presents rapidly rising Ukrainian producer NICKBEE with his GEARS EP, also featuring the eerie and alluring vocals of JOANNA SYZE. With these 4 delicately balanced and keenly crafted slices of neurofunk, Nickbee displays a refined sense of structure and minimalism, whilst delivering a powerful vibe for the dance.
Half of the EP drips with dystopian spirit, bristling with razor sharp edges softened in NOWHERE TO RUN and WE FIGHT by Syze’s ethereal and alien voice. The Gears EP retains a sense of tight urgency and patient precision throughout, with GEAR’s tilted syncopation providing a light-footed and paranoid pace, while TOGETHER WITH FUTURE delivers a hulking stepper that packs a weighty punch.
Let’s jump into the first tune. We Fight featuring Syze. A bouncy tech step tune that is full of heavy low end.
The title track off this EP The Gears is up next. Another techy tune with a floor stomper vibe. This is a dance floor burner for sure!
The third tune Together With Future is another heavy dark banger. With the true Nickbee sound. Paired with nasty fx and synths. This tune gets the seal of approval!!
Last up is another tune featuring the vocal styles of Syze. Nowhere To Run is my favorite of this EP. It has dark vibe to it with incredibly heavy bassline. This tune really delivers the packs a punch.
Big up to Nickbee and Joanna Syze on their work on this EP.
