Anyone who’s followed the career of Nicuri over the years will know that he’s one of the most criminally underrated producers in the game. Although his releases are somewhat thin on the ground , when the New Jersey producer does get in the studio he tends to deliver with aplomb. His latest work sees him remix a true house music legend, compatriot DJ Duke. Released as part of Duke’s Green Pastures EP on emerging Irish imprint Solo Works, it’s one part of a special all-round package that also includes a remix from Dublin producers, Slowburn.
Taking Duke’s ‘Green Pastures’ and adding an irresistible acid line into proceedings, Nicuri then ramps matters up further via a spliced vocal and a baseline that’s perfectly suited to a sun rising Panorama Bar session. An almost impeccable house gem, it’s a perfect tonic to these long and occasionally arduous winter nights.
