Roush Label | 23.11.2018
New York’s Alan Nieves drops his three track EP entitled ‘About Music’ on Roush this November. Having gained support from some of the biggest names in the game, including The Martinez Brothers, Marco Carola and Erick Morillo, American artist Alan Nieves’ career is most certainly on the rise.
A resident in his home city at Brooklyn’s Output, and with releases on the likes of Elrow Music, Deeperfect, Wow! Recordings and Sanity, plus a Beatport #1 Tech House release to his name, here we see him deliver three fresh cuts on Roush to launch into November. Title cut ‘About Music’ sets the tone as Nieves utilizes rolling drums and skipping hats to open the EP in style, whilst ‘Sell The Funk’ fuses slick, skipping percussion, groove-heavy bass licks and infectious vocal hooks. Last up, ‘Boroughs’ reveals tough kicks, sharp snares amongst spoken Brooklyn and Manhattan references and evolving synth lines to round out proceedings.
