DescriptionSince meeting in 2001 Konstantin Atomas and Vasiliv Basalev have been combining efforts and their accumulated musical knowledge to create deep emotive disco inspired by the a range of sounds and styles.
ʻDonʼt Fly Awayʼ kicks off the EP in true slo-mo fashion, all down tempo beats and twitchy acid lines. The track draws on emotive Rhodes chord flourishes and the sensuous vocals provided by Nata Tomata to create a warm, feel good groove with its heart in classic disco territory.
ʻDonʼt Fly Away (Jimpster Dub Mix)ʼ ups the tempo into house territory with a subtle sub bass line driving the track. The Freerange Records boss displays the smooth deep house sounds he has become known for with layered pads and arpeggioʼs creating a rolling groove sure to keep heads nodding. ʻDonʼt Fly Away (Jimpster Vocal Mix)ʼ has a more upfront vibe with the main focus on the acidic elements of the original and cleverly sampled piano stabs orchestrated to rework the groove into a movingly melodic piece of music.
Wrapping up the EP is ʻDonʼt Fly Away (The Maneken Remix)ʼ sticking with the format of the originalʼs down tempo feel yet maintaining Manekenʼs own unique sound by using ambient pads, soft piano rolls and a retro 80ʼs moog style bass line.
This is undoubtedly a stand out release from the Audio Tonic team and a great example of Nu Discoʼs growing popularity worldwide from these Siberian songwriters.
