This new 12” from Nathan Melja wastes no damn time at all, cutting straight in with the first track’s stern kick drum; a kick drum so low-pitched that it almost merges with the bassline. A.C.I. has three more tracks just as heavy up its sleeve as well, so watch yourselves. Edition of 300 on Black Opal.

Prior to ‘A.C.I’ I think Nathan Melja’s only other physical release is a 12” on Mister Saturday Night which is a good indication of what sort of vibe he’s on. That is; high quality underground modern house music.
‘Ludes’ has a swirling slightly disorientating sea-sick synth that suggests the altered state implied by the tracks title. It sounds like a conventional house track that’s done a massive line of ketamine and is struggling to keep it together.
‘Venasce’ is narcotic dancefloor soul with dreamy soulful keys/ Rhodes reminiscent of a DJ Sprinkles tune I can’t remember the name of. ‘Maria May With Me’ has the feel of a more lo-fi early Transmat production, then closing the EP is my personal highlight; the scuffed, trippy dubby techno of ‘Make Rekkurds’ reminding me of very early Surgeon stuff.
