Nathan Rivers – Not Afraid EP – Resonance Records 007
Labels like ALiVE and Cubism have been charting the rise of Nathan Rivers by releasing his house focussed EPs up to now. Plenty have been heard across Radio 1 with support from big spinners like Darius Syrossian and Tom Budden to boot. This new 4 tracker for Resonance explores more polishedhouse territory that looks to the old school whilst sounding thoroughly of the now.
First track ‘What’s Going Down’ is a pure vibey house jam with buffed, polished synth sounds, choppy percussion and a hooky vocal that really makes things soar.  ‘Not Afraid’ is a slightly blissed out cut mood wise, but a bobbling bassline doesn’t allow you not to dance as a smooth vocal weaves in and out. ‘Raw Moves’ puts its head down a bit with more scraping perk and breathy voices adding some sexual tension. The bassline is still key to it all though, bouncing like it were 1994. Finally, ‘Feel the Vibe’ again bounces beautifully with stabbed synths and keys adding plenty of colour to the beats. Four classy party starts, then, from a talent well worth watching.
