REVIEW: Niko - You Used To Have Her [Atic Records]

Niko's new long player ELECTRIC UNION will be released on ATIC Records this fall. It will be preceded by two singles ("You Used to Have Her" and "The Palace Discotheque") and followed by a 5-track remix EP in the new year.

With her powerful breakbeat, fuzz bass, and rave synths, the first single "You Used to Have Her" might take those familiar with Niko's earlier work a bit by surprise. However, on closer inspection, all of the Seattle-born singer's trademark traits are present and correct: beautifully crafted vocal melodies, complex backing vocal harmonies, a classic pop sensibility, and identifiable lyrics that, despite their theme, sometimes dark, always exude a contagion. 'the joy of living'.

His latest work is a euphoric psychedelic experience, in which each song takes the listener on his own sonic journey, until closing a set as experimental as it is intense and addictive, which takes over oneself like a sweet poison, while progressively transporting us, like few. other producers with a certain fluency are willing to do so. Built on the legacy of those who came before it, Hydraulix has grown into a talent whose music will influence generations to come.

With this work we enter an amazing soundscape. It is an energetic and danceable adventure, capable of completely resetting us.
