Premiere: Timid Boy – Elia [Moan]

French artist Damien Almira aka Timid Boy is back with a bold new EP on Moan Recordings which reflects the stylistic evolution his sounds have made over the last two years. His original comes with remixes from Nacho Bolognani and Per Hammar.

The tunes here are still driven by groove, but go deeper into more sophisticated sounds and textures. They come after the classically trained pianist and former Trax Mag deputy editor has released on the likes of Roush, Deeperfect, Saved and his own Time Has Changed label.

Opener “Elia” is a lush, mellow and warm minimal house cut perfect for open air dances and day time parties thanks to its sensitive emotions. Nacho Bolognani proves why he is the new kid on the block with a superb and stylish house remix and also 6am edit too, both outstanding tracks to the original.

“Leo” is much more in your face, brutal and dark, with a more menacing energy. Per Hammar version presents a more dubbed out and stripped back groove of Leo that gets you lost in the music.

These are five fantastic tracks from three vital talents.
