Melodic-techno cuts are arguably ascending fast in popularity once again (think COMPUTER DATA, Rodriguez Jr. and Yotto), and Nesker's latest offering undoubtedly a testament to the decade's renewed captivation. No stranger to MYR, the producer adds EP No Escape to the label's ever-growing discography of house and techno, further amplifying his versatility and growth.
A humble liveliness kindles the soulful constructions of No Escape, forming an indelible landscape that is inherently Nesker. The three track EP opens with its namesake; "No Escape" delivers an inescapable emotive parable—one lined with analogue bass that beautifully dances with syncopated drums. It's in this track that the producer illuminates his signature sound-shaping techniques, bridging the melodic energy of his techno with deep house influences. The second number follows as an instrumental to "No Escape", offering a version void of the original's pandering croons. Finally, the last instalment of No Escape is "Hope"—an intricately synthesized track that drips with electronic splendour. Subtle builds of energy pulsate throughout the number, reaffirming Nesker's abilities in evoking strong emotions with "Hope"'s punctuated basslines.
