It sure feels like in Ibiza with this heatwave hitting Bucharest these days so what better way to cool it down than with some authentic island vibes? This Friday we surf the soundwaves with Nicolau of Real Gang at the controls so adjust the volume of your speakers and let the weekend vibes flow!
Nicolau is an underground artist who naturally found his calling spending the majority of his adult life on the island of Ibiza. Starting his adventure with an open frame of mind of what was to come, he eventually met Miller (Miffy & Miller) and the creation of Real Gang was the outcome of the relationship that was curated by their love and dedication to modern electronic music. In a world full of headliners, he usually takes things back to basics with the ability to portray the art of the warm-up (and sometimes afterhours) with stripped-back low swung grooves with a deep dubby core. This is the sound he provides to the dancefloors of his homes of Ibiza Underground and The Zoo Project where he’s been a resident DJ since 2017.
Recently, Real Gang celebrated 5 years of activity with a 20h marathon party across 2 venues in Manchester while releasing an amazing Various Artists compilation to which Nicolau also contributed with a solid minimalistic cut titled “Mystikal“. More works are in the making for sure so stay sharp for future releases!
“The usual Real Gang vibes and flavours from myself. I dug through my record collection to select tracks from light to dark, spacey and vibrant, keeping you locked in! Thank you to feeder.ro for having me!”Nicolau
feeder sound 317 mixed by Nicolau reveals a hypnotic selection crafted with powerful raw minimal rhythms that will make you start shaking your body in seconds. The flow of the steady-paced drumming patterns and complementary background textures swings from deep to funky, from abstract to mellow, from stripped-back to full wobbling psychedelic flavours, providing 2h of pure joy perfect to start your weekend with. Enjoy with the volume up!
