Laying down some fresh works, this concoction of circle breakers is about to heat up the room. TRACKPACK Vol 2 blends traditional Chicago style with Nangdo’s ultramodern sound. This release would be considered his most innovative yet.
Starting off with Shy to Say, a continual xylo synth hovers over the soul sample, and in Pounds the melody is also the dominant sound but the vox sample plays a distinct part in this catchy track. The drum pattern holds a footwork beat that you might hear thrown in the circle if you haven’t already; steady, crisp and on-point.
“There is something really catchy about every track, especially Pounds. The percussion lines up so perfectly.”
- JTRA (D160)
She Know feat. Feero & Frenquency is built up with digital horn sounds, steady claps and an electro synth all meshing together to create an old school Chicago sound. While Acid Hit and Come into my World - both DJ friendly and favorited by the footworkers, stays true to footwork while adding some of Nangdo’s signature style.
Saving the best for last, Said and Done holds it place at the top of the D160 list. The smooth soul takes us out nicely, cruising it’s way to the end. Soft rolling hi-hats, the mellow kick lying below, it all works. One truly mixed platter for you to delve into on any given day.
