Nills Downwards EP
Drawing on 20 years of involvement in the Copenhagen music scene, from mid 90s jungle through electronica to contemporary bass music, Nills crafts music which resists categorisation.
A musical journey through electronic music history, Downwards is an EP which nods to its musical heritage but builds something new. On Nills’ debut EP, dreamy synth lines reminiscent of the 1980s sit alongside deep, dubby baselines and crisp clean drums.
Starting out as a jungle and drum ‘n’ bass dj in Copenhagen during the late 90’s, Nills spent the subsequent years following the trails and clues left here and there between the complex drum patterns and heavy basslines of the records he was playing.
Digging ever deeper in to the origins of the many bass heavy genres growing out of London, Detroit, Berlin and Kingston he has developed his own mix of ingredients he’d picked up along the way. His music is a mixture where dubby drums collide with 303’s, BPMs move from 50 to 180, and melodic synth-memories of an eighties childhood leaves something for both the headphones and the club.
