    One of our highlights of last year was Nebraska’s ‘Soften the wireless’ EP, with disco stomper Khan’s Bargain, and an amazing Tom Noble remix. Since then, we’ve seen him take on quite a few live shows again, playing at Claire during ADE, and Concrete for our label showcases. He’s also managed to find a bit of time to focus on his fresh (new and cool) edit label ‘Friends and Relations’. Luckily, since we’ve been nagging him to do a new EP for Heist just enough for him to still like us, and more than enough for him to want to get it over with, we’ve gotten our hands on another set of amazing tunes. So we’re happy to present his amazing music, nicely packaged in one handy record for your listening pleasure: the ‘Metaphor to the floor’ EP.

    You’ll feel a hint of that Nebraska classic ‘This is the way’ on the lead track ‘Affirmation’, with its subtle build up and release of energy, looping vocals, and dramatic chords. Aglio e Olio is not only a simple yet tasty Italian dish with of just 5 ingredients, it’s also quite the track on this EP, equalling the dish in terms of simplicity and strength. Snares on the 1, Clavi style hits and a loose arrangement give this track a great funk – house crossover appeal.

    On the flip, we’ve got fellow Londoner Laurence Guy, who just released an amazing album on the equally cool ‘Church’. His version of Aglio e Olio is a dreamier excursion with filtered pads, acidey licks and more than enough balls in the low end to get you movin’ in your dim-lit club of choice.

    The ep’s final track sees Nebraska turning the energy up a notch or 2 (or 3), with ‘Big plate chicken’. It’s the sort of track you would imagine Omar S. producing if he would be just a bit whiter, and a bit more British. Whatever that means.

    Yours Sincerely,
    Maarten & Lars.
