First Listen: nthng – ‘Are You Here’ (Pacific Command)

Dutch producer nthng arrives on techno imprint Pacific Command with the Are You Here 12″.

Having put out a couple of minimalisitc and muffled techno EPs for Lobster Theremin sub label Mörk, nthng has just come through with a couple of distinctly rave-ready tracks for Pacific Command. The mysterious London imprint has kept a low profile until now, recently inaugurating its release schedule with some dark, Bargain-esque floor-fillers in the form of Senate’s ‘Gangstalker‘ EP.

In the wake of this, Are You Here’s title track is an appropriately upbeat exploration of deep Dutch sounds – complete with shuffling drums, skittering hi hats and gritty synth stabs. Best described as a rolling, alien-technoid jam, it harbours a distinct groove yet moves along in a trance-like fashion, rising and falling as it’s held together by a swirling hook. Dive in below:

Are You Here is out February 12  on Pacific Command. Pre order here.
