NastyNasty :: Acid Hangover
NastyNasty just dropped this funky heavy beat on us a couple days ago. Now I’ve been following NastyNasty for a little while and he makes some pretty weird experimental electronic tracks, but this is kind of an odd one for him. He mostly loses the wub-centric “dub” sound he has adapted in favor of a grimy pitch-shifting bassline that is the soul of the track.
Perhaps the explanation for the weirdness lies somewhere in this barely-comprehensible description that the artist gives us for the track: “last christmas i took acid and rode a cruiser bike through an abandoned san jose. I wrote this the next morning”. Quite intriguing, NastyNasty. As always I’m on the lookout for his next sonic experiment, and actually I’d be quite happy with tracks more similar to this than some of his other output.
He’s only beginning to get his due recognition, and I believe he still has many tricks up his sleeve. On Facebook he mentioned that he picked up a lot of new ideas while in Europe last year, so we can expect him to keep it fresh through 2012.
