Since it's conception in 2009 Nonplus records have built a reputation for consistently releasing records at the forefront of the electronic music scene. Whether it has been low-end techno from Kassem Mosse or pioneering musical explorations from Actress the label has never compromised on quality. Not surprising since Nonplus is run by two of the industries most influential figures, Alex Green and Damon Kirkham (AKA Instra:mental). Nonplus' output has visibly slowed in the last few months, Green saying recently that the pair had not heard anything that they had been excited about for a little while. However, the next release from promising new producer Endian has impressed so much that there are already plans for a follow up ep before the year is out.
Endian's main focus is keeping his productions as 'raw and analogue' as possible, a goal which he has achieved with the help of his newly built hardware studio. With his roots firmly in DNB, the london based producer drew inspiration for 'Birdhouse' from the early Metalheadz sound, describing it as an attempt to bridge the gap between drum and bass and techno. 'Dubplate' is a weightier cut, delivering an infectious rhythm sure to inject energy into any dance floor. You can listen to both tracks below.
The EP looks likely to be released at the end of April. You can keep up to date with new music and release information by following Endian on Twitter or by checking out his blog. Also, keep your ears to the ground for news on the next Instra:mental 12" coming out in the next few months.
