Nervous Horizon are back with the second in a series of quick-fire EP releases, this time in the form of Ehua’s ‘Aquamarine’ — her first EP proper for the label after contributing a track (‘Meteora’) to 2019’s ‘NH Vol.3’ compilation.
Following hot on the heels of SIM’s dancehall-inflected ‘Terminate’ EP, ‘Aquamarine’ details six new tracks inspired by both the colour and motion of water. With tempos ranging from 95-140bpm, Ehua also uses custom made percussive samples and original vocals — spoken thoughts in reversed Italian on ‘Black’ — to harness different motions and states, collecting thoughts on organisms, frequencies and vibrations that we might not be aware of or perceive.
These ideas and concepts take shape via a rich and experimental, six-track workflow that moves between the dark, sludgy broken-beats of ‘Xantho’ through to the unnerving, drone techno of ‘Diatom’ — a track written to mirror the darkest depths of the ocean.

The intricate, high frequency percussive touches that adorn Wheele at 2:53 are subtle but expertly balanced. This dancefloor-shattering masterpiece is a suitable alternative to a feather duster when it comes to cleaning your subwoofer. hthomson
