Will Eastman – Nikkei (Original Mix) [Free Download]
Will Eastman is a man of many sounds. Perhaps better known as one-third of nu disco powerhouse Volta Bureau and owner of the best basement club on the East Coast, Eastman has also explored a bevy of different sounds in his solo projects. After teasing his trio’s return with some new remixes this fall, the Washington veteran has returned with “Nikkei,” a multifaceted deep dance tune featuring lush analog synth stylings and a well-executed host of eccentric rhythms. The track is sculpted around a simultaneously menacing and alluring vocal sample, which gets pitched up during the break to tremendous tension-building effect. Eastman has made the track available as a free download in advance of its release on Main Course’s forthcoming SNACKS compilation in January, so catch it while its complimentary.
