vurtnight with Nuel (Aquaplano, Further Records / Italy)

NUEL (Further Records, Aquaplano / Italy)
Nuel is an Italian DJ, live musician and producer who has a reputation for sculpting perfectly hypnotic and meditative sounds. He explores long form grooves, meditative rhythm and smoothing soundscapes, does so on labels like Further and Aquaplano in both EP and LP form. He distills rhythm, groove and texture into powerful compositions that can be techno, can be ambient or can be trance inducing and wholly downtempo. Nuel is also a chief studio partner of Donato Dozzy: together the pair have put out many seminal deep techno, minimal and tribal soundscapes that are much fawned over. In 2016 he releases EPs on a number of labels, as well as a sophomore full length on Seattle’s Further Records in 2016 entitled Hyperboreal, and all of it will continue to focus on his less is more approach.
As a DJ, Nuel is just as focussed on mood, texture and atmosphere and manages to suck people into his supple, shadowy yet surprising techno-scapes whenever he plays. He layers up elongated synths, subtle bleeps and blips and a whole world of intergalactic motifs that make you feel as if you are flying through deepest darkest space or travelling to the centre of the earth. His sounds are expertly reduced yet masterfully impactful, always coming imbued with a cerebral sense of hypnotism that you simply cannot fake.
