Nobody (Mandar remix)
In just a few years Noha has made a sizable impact on the contemporary tech house scene. As well as being at the helm of Nabuco Records and Panick Panick! alongside Alex Tea, he’s also released a huge swathe of records on labels such as Nilla, Constant Black, Tartouffe and Point Of View. It’s not hard to see why the Oscillat crew invited him to their label – his sleek and instinctive sound is a perfect fit for the subliminal house ops the Parisian imprint is best known for. “Nobody” shimmers with invention, marked out by bold, emotive synth strokes and a nagging, subtly swung groove. Oscillat bosses Mandar then take the original right down into a pristine dubbed-out mantra that gets under your skin effortlessly. It’s the kind of classy execution Mandar are known for, and best of all it keeps the essence of the soul-stirring original intact in the process.
