Italian producer Niro is set to release his new EP ‘The P Connection’ on the 3rd of March.
Consisting of three tracks ‘The P Connection’ is a multifaceted journey through the realms of sophisticated and future-forward broken-beat, deep house and dark, experimental electronica which leap past basic structures opting for finely crafted compositions. ‘Fill The Colors With Soen’ plays with atmospheric synth layers and jazzy undertones, laid out like a soundtrack to an intergalactic journey. Niro takes his spacey sound to the dance floors with ‘Train Of Vicissitudes’, a 4×4 bit laced with an acid tinging. ‘Reminescence’ finds Niro venturing into an unorthodox form of intense electronica that punches with brutal force.

To modify anything is to simply make changes. It would then make sense for well-respected musicians Adam Scrimshire and Dave Koor to come together to alter the current state of music, powered by sophisticated instrumentation and the idea of futurism. This concept of pushing sound forward also comes from firmly planted roots steeped deep in jazz, soul, funk, afrobeat, rock, electronica and more. These are genres that both Scrimshire and Koor know well with keen expertise. This is also why their ‘Modifications: Set 1’ album under the guise of Modified Man will undoubtedly go down as one of the most entertaining and important releases of the year.
