Get To Know: Nitri

All eyes and ears should be tuned into Program this week as they unleash their first single of 2013: Programmed V1.0. A hefty four-piece presentation, it’s riddled with future-tinted grooves from a truly international crew.

Russia’s represented well with two superb tracks from Eastcolors and Paul B, the UK flag is flying high with a storming cut from Audio and Meth and we’re also destined for Brazil with Concentration, a supreme minimal funk cut from Nitri. With Brazil’s next-gen breed well and truly establishing themselves on the drum & bass landscape we thought we’d lock down with Nitri and send him some questions.

Not only that, but all eyes and ears should also be tuned to The Risky’s Podcast as we’ve also bagged ourselves a mix from Nitri! Read the interview below and subscribe to our podcast series today!   

Yo Luciano… How’s it going?

“Yeah, all good here thanks. Busy working right now!”

Let’s talk about Concentration. Huge tune! How did the hook-up with Program happen?

“Thanks for that. Actually, it was a little hard to believe. I sent the track to Andy C and within a few weeks, I have had contact with Ray (Rampage – Program manager), saying he really liked the track and wanted to sign it! I did not know what to say! Everything worked out nicely.”

It’s full of cool clicks and whirs and so much funk! Did it take a lot of concentration to make?

“I like this track style. I love minimal percussion arrangements and anything futuristic. Very clean production. It’s the kind of music I love making! As for difficulty: each track has its own challenges. Every track involves a lot of hard work.”

What’s the best DJ feedback you’ve had on it so far?

“I’ve had some amazing feedback on this track. Andy C, Bryan Gee were the largest DJs but it’s had great support from a lot of DJs. I’m very proud!”

What’s your concentration span like anyway? Are you easily distracted or fully focused?

“I always try to concentrate and focus on what I’m doing.  When I sit down to produce, I grab my coffee and cigarettes and sit in front of the monitor for hours and hours. I’m always focused on what I’m doing!”

Your track Break The System was featured on Jumping Jack Frost’s Big Bad & Heavy mix on Chronic last year. It’s massive and totally different to Concentration…. Is this wide-eared approach to production the type of range we can expect from you?

“Yeah, Break The System was something different. It shows a different side to my production. Bryan Gee asked me to build a track that’s to my own taste. It was the first time I sent a track over to someone and they’ve liked it straight away. I have a few more tracks similar to Break The System. I’ve already told you my love for the minimal style, but sometimes I think it’s good to do something different and get away from the usual routine.”

So what else is coming up?

“I have so much material to launch in the next few months. A single and a few other projects for Horizons Music, a co-lab with Cabin Fever for Grid Records, a track for Allsorts and a track for Chronic. I’m also finishing a project with SuddenDef, Firesyne and MC Key. I have some other materials being tested by the labels. Loads going on!”

And when are you coming over to the UK to play?

“If all goes well, maybe in September or October.”

How’s the scene in Brazil at the moment? Seems to be some very exciting players out there at the moment… Level 2, Unreal, DJ Chap… we’re all imagining Sao Paulo to be like London but with better weather and ladies wearing a little less clothing. Are we right?

“We have quite a few stand-out producers right now. In addition to those you’ve mentioned, we have Critycal Dub and Rusty. The scene over here has really upped its production game. I have followed the little parties here, they’re great, but I believe it still does not compare the UK! The climate of São Paulo is nice to go out at night but let’s not forget to big up the Brazilian ladies! They will always be the most beautiful. Ha!”

Finally please tell us something about yourself you’ve never told in an interview!

“As this is my first interview, I can safely say I’ve never told any of this in an interview before! I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who’s supported my music, especially the Program crew. Peace!”

Programmed V1.0 is out now!

Loadstar – Black & White (Hamilton Remix)

Loadstar

Black & White ft. Benny Banks

Ram Records

Worldwide release 10th December 2012

 

Having made its debut on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show and already clocked up 400,000 views on UKF Dubstep ‘Black & White’ sees Loadstar effortlessly showcasing a brand new side to their sound. The Bristol-based duo are well known for their incredible drum & bass and now they gear up for the release of their debut album on Ram Records with a 140bpm slice of sublime bass music that’s sure to set dance floors from London to Los Angeles alight with a fresh flavour.

 

Straddling the line perfectly between minimal class and powerful sub-low dance floor music, ‘Black & White’ is the perfect embodiment of a stripped-back style that will set the trend for what’s to come next in the world of bass music. Featuring 679 signed rising UK rap star Benny Banks ‘Black & White’ shows a distinct maturity to Loadstar’s current musical approach and will undoubtedly have everyone excited for their forthcoming debut album. Euphoric chords and slowly filtered vocals open the way before Benny’s infectious chorus pulls you in. And once ‘Black & White’ has you in its clutches it doesn’t let go!

 

The digital package for ‘Black & White’ features a plethora of incredible remixes that should keep bass music fans from all corners happy. From Breakage’s deeply euphoric 4/4 rework through Tinker Hatfield’s trap style floor-shaker and Rack & Ruin’s shuffling house take, each mix stands up tall and offers a fresh vibe.

 

And, as fans of Ram Records would expect, the vinyl edition has two incredible drum & bass tracks which also complete the digital package. First up is Loadstar’s ‘Vatican Roulette’ – an absolute monster of a tune crammed with heavy bass energy, intense alarm synths and pounding drums. This is an undeniable dance floor killer! Then label mate Hamilton steps up to rework ‘Black & White’ into a huge drum & bass number that’s sure to have the faster floors jumping this autumn!

 

With this new single Loadstar show that they have the diversity and maturity to produce a wide range of sounds and styles. A fact that will surely have everyone excited for their coming long player.
