Nasty Boy/FLML - Parallel Journeys [Alley Version]


Nasty Boy/FLML - Parallel Journeys [Alley Version]

Alley Version is back courtesy of their third release, ‘Parallel Journeys’. a split EP that again showcases the Bologna imprint. This time, the label welcomes newcomer Nasty Boy to the fold alongside the label owners, FLML.

Opening the release is the sounds of Nasty Boy’s thrilling ‘Give Up’. A dextrous deep house journey that forces parallels with the best work of Theo Parrish and Ron Trent, this is thinking man’s house music of the very highest calibre.

Nasty Boy’s other original cut here is ‘Touching the void’, a more raucous track with a heavy emphasis on drum patterns and sharp, simmering synths.

The B side kicks off with FLML’s ‘Oblivion Street’. A classy jam that’s designed to tug at the heartstrings, this is another emotional-leaning deep house track that’s perfectly suited to these dark, colder nights. An analogue-heavy cut that follows a fairly well-trodden path but nonetheless still manages to captivate, it’s very much indicative of a label and an artist worth watching out for.

Culminating matters soon after is FLML’s ‘Bouncy Dream’, a good-time house record whereby piano-laden vibes cause havoc from the get-go. And as the music dies down, the EP’s title begins to make perfect sense.
