Tracklist 12″ + mp3 DL A1. The Journey / 05:10 A2. Jiboia Groove / 05:40 B1. Monkey Puzzle / 06:20 B2. The Journey (Violet Remix) / 06:05 Digital Only. Forest Guru / 04:26 MUSAR continues to explore the healthy landscape of underground and alternative electronic music with the debut release on the label from Nightwave. ‘The Journey’ is a fitting title for the Glaswegian producer, DJ and promoter, who has been a lynchpin for the city’s vibrant music scene since her first release in 2010. In the time since, Nightwave has a developed a punchy and highly original sound that blends potent influences of acid, techno and forward-thinking bass music, with releases on DABJ, UTTU, Fool’s Gold, DEXT and her own imprint Heka Trax. For her MUSAR debut, Nightwave celebrates, in her own words, “joy, dance, exploring inner worlds, the celebration of nature and life and how it all interconnects”. On a delicate tip, opening and title track ‘The Journey’ establishes the EP’s “rainforest rave” aesthetic, spiralling upwards with weightless energy. It’s underlying percussion steps forward on ‘Jiboia Groove’, which blossoms thrillingly into wave upon wave of ethereal, breakbeat-led rave.
