Premiere: Nathan Alzon – Nuns In Heels (Rendher Remix) [Tamango Records]

Tamango Records’ upcoming reference comes from young enfant-prodige Nathan Alzon: if we are to speak of rising talents, he’s definitely one to look out for. The French-Taiwanese artist lands on the label for the first time with the classy and sleek ‘Heartbreaker’ EP, which follows previous releases on NO ART, What NxT, and Deeperfect. On the remix side, we welcome Spaniard revelation Rendher, who provides one of his gloomy, rolling numbers.

The EP kicks off with ‘Heartbreaker’, a lush deep-house piece filled with full-bodied grooves, silk pads, and a catchy female vocal that will resonate throughout your body. To follow, ‘Bandicoot’ offers a steady funky bassline above which Nathan can display a great synergy of dubby echoing stabs and powerful drums, all flooded with an old school classy touch.

Up next, ‘Nuns In Heels’ lies on the B-side offering solid kicks and delicate chords accompanied by jazzy trumpets and graceful vocal chops. Closing the EP, Barcelona-based groover Rendher heads to stripped-back territories, twisting the original into a heads-down hammering tune. His remix features tight harsh grooves and booming bass tones, providing an essential late-night pumping jam.
