The first release from Nothin Personal, comes from label curator and founder, 'Loure'.
Marking a slightly new direction for Loure, 'Outta 106' celebrates the diversity and talent of the Melbourne underground. Showcased through a collection of 6 finely crafted tracks stretching from contemporary jazz, to breakbeat, through to house cuts - Loure collaborates with some of Melbourne's best-kept secrets, to surface the stunning talent and beauty that is the Melbourne underground.
Highlights from the record are:
'Rotate' - a swinging 4/4 groove, accompanied by classy sax melodies, uplifting piano, and soulful vocals that together build into a thumping house cut, filling your heart and the floor.
'The Walk Home' - A complex DNB style beat, matched with luscious strings and a burning sax solo that drives listeners into the deeper side of the release.
'Heavyweight Sinner' - another UK Jazz style cut, a solid broken-beat groove with lulling melodies, complimented by warming guitar. The track peaks with an impressive bass solo.
'Talking Circles' - Closing the release with elevating ambiance, emotive strings, and one final burst of soaring brass to create a euphoric and memorable ending to what is a stunning EP

my god, it's everything I love about the Aussie psychedelic rock sound plus everything I love about modern jazz. It's like a simultaneity of eras of influences and sounds all atop one another, modern and retro, psychedelic and jazzy, it's just spectacular! Nate Stevens
