The mysterious Nurve follows his 2014 debut (TEC 079EP) with four crunching darkside cuts, conjuring the spirits of Ed Rush & Optical circa the late '90s. The EP opens with Pyromaniac, a mesmerizing, bewitching, entrancing, delirious homage to the beauty of fire. Brain Sugar, a collaboration with Caski, takes the mood deeper with mystical vibes and meticulous tech-heavy programming. The dance floor-focused Cabana hits hard while holding true to the palette of the EP as a whole. Closer Drugs Don't Work takes a disintegrating trajectory over a broken rhythm.
