Niccolo Brown The opening salvo of the second of Nick Lapien's brace of Mistress EP's couldn't be more different from the first. Sultry deep house strewn with soulful female vocal samples has been jettisoned in favour of the steely precision of techno, albeit from the Detroit rather than the Gesloten Cirkel end of the spectrum. By fifth track "Need Nobody", however, the vibes have veered back towards house accentuated by a soaring vocal sample of the title. Closing cut "It Ain't The Same" pulls a similar trick, a bouncy piano motif almost bringing things full circle. Two essential EPs by an truly gifted producer. Don't buy one without the other. Favorite track: Need Nobody.

    Lapien about the release:
    „Finding original sound sources, and combining them with the machines I came to love so much, makes the working process that much more interesting to me. Even if a lot of the sounds are often not recognizable anymore, the track is more depth to me, knowing who beat the percussion and what is his or her story – this story then becomes part of my music. For me, this is almost music anthropologist approach, is infinitely more interesting than using a ready-made sample kit. In the period leading up to these EPs, my father quite suddenly was taken away from us. Many tracks got a whole new meaning and weight because of what I was processing. And without realizing it, a simple track build around a beautiful vocal snippet becomes an homage to someone you love.

    The „Something To Tell You EP“ contains four song-driven cuts which due to their narrative quality should work equally well at the club as at home for listening. Almost all the tracks on „Something To Show You EP“ come straight out of the live set that I prepared for the Mistress Night at Panorama Bar. I had a 2-hour slot and wanted to do something special. Therefore I wrote a lot of new material. After Zak heard the recording, he came up with the idea to do a second EP with the more beat-focussed material.“
