For the next instalment on Solardo’s Sola imprint, Dillon Nathaniel takes the reins with this 3 track house delight, including a collaboration with Rowetta.
“Had to start the new year off with a bang! Diving deeper into my roots a mixture of authentic house, showcasing some of my signature dark grooves as well as a revisiting an old project and bringing it to life” – Dillon Nathaniel
The EP kicks off with Reason To Fly featuring one of the most soulful singers in the game, Rowetta from the revered group The Happy Mondays. The record showcases how a simple but effective groove and a powerful vocal can ignite the energy in the room and make you forget your worries, a nod to old school authentic house, a true beauty. Next up is the Free The World, simply put, a tribal percussion line, a traditional Saharan African Chant, and a modulating Korg ms – 20. Taking a deeper electronic sound with Don’t Make Me, the final track on the EP has dark grooves but maintains the soul and rhythm of an energetic house record. The deep rhythm of the bass with the frequency cutting tonal percussion shots make it a wild ride all the way to the end.
A technical whizz in the studio and house music connoisseur, Dillon Nathaniel has been establishing his talent across the world. His thick grooves and hypnotic rhythm caught the attention of Solardo, Marc Kinchen, Chris Lake, Lee Foss, and many more whilst spilling on to the crossover circuit with support from BBC Radio 1 and Kiss FM. The former audio engineer and gear junkie found his footing in music at an early age as a vocalist and guitar player. With an ability to work multiple sub genres flawlessly, Dillon Nathaniel’s versatile productions have landed him releases on a variety of labels including Sola, Repopulate Mars, Toolroom, Big Beat, Solotoko, Glasgow Underground, Insomniac, and many others. Quickly keeping momentum with key festival performances at CRSSD in San Diego, AMF’s Friendship Maiden Voyage, Coachella’s Heineken House, and EDC Las Vegas. Dillon continues to perform at the most prestigious dance venues across the US.//
