CP024: Matt Tolfrey & Lazaro Casanova featuring Nikko Gibler – LAX EP by culpritlosangeles

So here’s the story. This was a particularly fun EP to work on! Many times when I collaborate with people… By the time I get sent a file or a bounce or we finally end up going into the studio; I usually have little space for overall harmonic content because I usually come in at the end of the creative process 😉 (easier for me lol) But… On the whole LAX EP I was sent these MASSIVE stripped-down grooves by Matt and Laz from the get-go so I had a great opportunity to layer and stack things up quite nicely… Vocals, synths, harmonies, melodies etc… There was room for everything. I was in wonderland.

At the end of it all, weeks to months has passed, and finally, all of the parts were mixed down beautifully by Matt and Laz; and there I was… sitting on a couch listening to the master. I was completely blown away and totally stoked because it was finally coming out.  Since I received the master 8-9 weeks ago… I’ve been playing all 3  jams on my live & dj sets consistently and they’ve always seemed to integrate themselves beautifully into whatever song was playing before them. Hopefully you will enjoy listening to this EP as much as I enjoyed writing, recording and singing on it.

Be sure to grab your copy on VINYL or AIF/WAV format when it comes out. Beats the hell out of frequency shaved, mushy sounding, over-compressed MP3s… Right? No? Oh right, most people can’t hear the difference you say. That’s correct. They can’t. But….But….But that doesn’t mean they can’t FEEL the difference. They can feel it and THAT makes all the difference in the world. Think about that.

Be sure to come hang out with us. Should be an amazing day.

Muno.pl does it right….

Very cool interview with the Droog boys.

Read the interview and listen to some Droog HERE.

 

On a slightly narcissistic note… Check out what Droog said about me.  hehehe :) (Thanx fellas!)

…”Another one off this compilation is Nikko Gibler – Monterrey, Mexico-born – but very much an LA denizen and closely connected to us musician and producer. Nikko is a multi-instrumentalist and a vocalist, a rare music mind within dance music. He is just now getting fully into electronic stuff having been a rock musician since he was a kid, great things will come from him. “

Not Alone / Space Limo

Excerpt from Beatport.com / Oct. 18th 2011 

“With its 20th release, petFood is pleased to present you with a 2-track EP from Los Angeles-based producer Nikko Gibler. A professional piano player hailing from Monterrey (Mexico), Nikko Gibler’s name is very much on the rise. His recent productions on Culprit and Leftroom have been very well received and this EP will be no different. The first track off the EP is a deep groove called ‘Space Limo’- a melodic, bass heavy tune with some beautiful stabs. No vocals, no big build up, just a solid groove. The other track, ‘Not Alone’, is an afterhours tune with a hypnotizing vibe. The eerie piano is perfectly complimented by a killer bassline that kicks in mid-song and takes the track to a whole new level.

Supported by: Danny Daze, Paco Osuna, Inxec, Soul Clap, Nic Fanciulli, Lazaro Casanova, Android Cartel & more…
