Boomkat Product Review:
Becoming a bit of a must-own label, Experiences Ltd. follow that insta-cop from LOG (aka Ulla & Perila) with this small-run 7” edition of gorgeous downtempo vibes from Dan Rincon aka NAP on the label’s first 7” release. The cream of the new ambient scene this lot...
NAP aka Dan Rincon usually plies a fine line in textured electro-techno as half of Ambien Baby with pivotal producer D. Tiffany on his Isla label, however ‘Íntima’ reveals a more sensual side to his style, adapting early ‘90s chill out room vibes with seductive rhythms in a way that beautifully whispers the sound of 2020.
The ‘Íntima’ original features Rincon reciting text written by Julia De Burgos, a Puerto Rican poet, in drowsy delivery over dreamlike pads and a dembow groove that surely recalls the sexy suss of DJ Python’s ‘Mas Amable’ album as much as Photek’s seminal ‘Into The 90’s’ classic for Metalheadz. The B-side extends the pleasure for beanbag dwellers to finish their spliff, switching out the vox for deep blue sax lines by Davie Biddle and landing in lowlit DJ Krush trip hop zones.
