I’m excited to have recently stumbled upon Nebula, whose works capture the magic of the 90’s drum & bass sound to an exceptional degree. While there are many amazing songs to choose from in Nebula’s repertoire, Chords of Sorrow, released on Subtle Audio Recordings in 2008, is a beauty.
Drumfunk panache is provided here on a silver platter, and so elegantly at that; glossy harmonies wind around wispy choir tones that eventually swell into a poignant choral crescendo. Nebula paints us a picture of dreamlike ambience brushed with strokes of melancholy – all animated by dynamic, adeptly arranged drum patterns. Enjoy the dive into this deep vibe, and if you’re enjoying it you can grab the digital re-release direct here.
