Boomkat Product Review:
Packaged with remixes from Tim Reaper and French trap don Brodinski, Nahash's latest forms the remnants of gabber, breakcore and dembow into four genre-breaking, abstract floor fillers.
Back in 2020, Nahash landed on SVBKVLT with 'Flowers of the Revolution', a politically-charged statement of intent that established Raphaël Valensi as a force to be reckoned with. 'A Snake In Your House' continues the thought, trimming some of the fat and focusing on dancefloor magick, decomposing familiar elements into a blur of choppy drums, disembodied samples and chest-pummeling subs. The title track will no doubt garner most attention, with its jazzy piano loops and deadly hardstyle kicks, but it's the EP's gentler moments that have us most intrigued.
On 'Davide XV', Nahash pairs up with French producer Elise Massoni to reconfigure classic hardcore into a measured flex of funk and sweat, underpinned by wobbly hoover blasts. 'AA Andorres' is even better, a sickeningly sexy neo-perreo slow burner that features dOP frontman JAW on vocals. Expectedly, Tim Reaper's version of 'Davide XV' pushes up the tempo and gives it a classic jungle makeover, and Brodinski turns the title track into an industrial-tinged cyber-trap dystopia. Very f nice.
