A1. Crew Talk
A3. Fooled Again
B1. Human Nature
B2. Not Long Now
We are happy to welcome UK-based producer Native Cruise on Slam City Jams. The guy was on our radar since his releases on No Bad Days and Fruit Merchant that easily combined house music with new-age synths, a wave/EBM touch and balearic sounds. His "Human Nature" EP is no exception with five outstanding tracks that differ in tempo and vibe.
The opener "Crew Talk" is a percussion heavy tune with lots of cowbells, a funky DX7 bass line, deep pads and dramatic chords that build up and up towards the end. "Elsewhere" is the most housey track on this record, with four-to-the-floor 808s and bittersweet strings that burst out into euphoria. Closing down the A-side is "Fooled Again", a balearic cut that feels like a day in the sun with it’s little synth blips and arps. On the flip we find the title track "Human Nature" that might be the hidden jam on this EP. Hard hitting Linn Drums, digital synth bells and those haunting vocals we can’t get out of our heads. Finally we have "Not Long Now" a perfectly atmospheric deep tune, that sits somewhere between ambient and reggaeton and will make fans of DJ Python more than happy.
