exclusive premiere: Nerve Maze – Abstract 4 [Abstract Sounds]
The first vinyl release to arrive from the Italian sound design venture Abstract Sounds features four fresh cuts carefully crafted by up and coming artist Nerve Maze. The material marks the artist’s debut on wax and represents a new chapter in the imprint’s activity which is well-known for bringing forward inspiring sample packs and production tools for the international underground community, with a focus on minimal techno, microhouse and deep tech. Among the treats, we also find their Artist Series packs designed by artists like Magnus Asberg, Giancarlo Lanza and Heath Holme.
Nerve Maze has been spinning his records since the early 2000s and constantly polished his skills behind the decks at local parties in his hometown of Salerno, Italy, as well as at numerous other events hosted alongside the Violettronica and Waves teams. Recently, his passion for the Romanian minimal style can be observed in his productions, as he took a step forward from mixing and started to explore his creativity in the studio.
“The EP for Nerve Maze is a starting point for a new musical and spiritual journey where he is involved at 360 degrees. But his music will go beyond ASV001 transforming his artistic figure more and more.”Abstract Sounds
“Abstract 1” opens the EP with a low-slung, deep minimal rhythm perfect for introspective states of mind, empowering the narrative to gain momentum on the following “Abstract 2”. Here, the warm background textures and the steady-paced drumming patterns receive extra magic from subtle reverberating sounds and spinning doppler effects. On the flipside, “Abstract 3” delivers a steamy deep tech vibe through its gritty filtered melodies and prominent percussion elements while our featured premiere, “Abstract 4”, closes the material with a stripped-down eerie vibe, shrouded in mystery and deep Rominimal influences.
