Australian producer and songwriter Harry Nathan releases brooding electronic single ‘Sweet Release’. It follows on from previous tracks, with Nathan’s characteristically introspective writing style on full display. The production is a slight departure, entering house territory, with climbing synths and vibrant percussion.
“I loved house music growing up and have always been a fan of soul and disco. When I was 14, I wanted to mix like Roger Sanchez but couldn’t afford DJ gear, so I cross-wired three stereos to practise mixing. If I needed to slow one down, I would press pause twice really quickly. When I got a regular gig as a wedding DJ, I was stoked just to use better gear and change the pitch.”
“We had a little wedding consortium with some DJ friendsfrom high school, but we were all really crazy about old-schoolhouse. When the bride and groom left, our friends would come and drink the leftover wedding booze whilst we went back to back mixing house classics.” – Harry Nathan
