Glaswegian-based Nightwave is undoubtedly a producer on the up. A regular collaborator with Rustie and ghetto-tech legend DJ Deeon, she's previously released on Unknown To The Unknown, Forrtifoed and Svetlana Industries. Here she pops up on her own Heka Trax with an expansive EP that joins the dots between a myriad of electronic styles whilst retaining a forth-right, bass-heavy swing. There's much to admire, from the ghetto bounce of "Shut It Down" (featuring B-more MC and recent Mad Decent signee TT The Artist) and the skittish-but-melodious thrills of "Birdland", to the 4/4 piano house and old school rave revivalism of "Nightlife". Superb stuff, all told.
