Instrumental Ward


Nu Groove Records
NG065D | 1990-09-07  
Nu Groove was one of the pioneering House Music labels out of NY, originally active between 1988 and 1992, it’s mark on the scene was to be felt for years to come. Originally set up by Karen and Frank Mendez as a vehicle for the Burrell twins, Rhano and Rheji, who were signed to Virgin at the time under the name Burrell, Nu Groove allowed them to explore the more underground and avant-garde nature of their musical minds. Nu Groove also became an outlet for many up and coming producers, including Kenny Dope, Bobby Konders, DJ Smash, Frankie Bones & Lennie Dee, Joey Negro and Joey Beltram to name but a few, they covered a variety of styles, from deep, jazzy and minimal house, through to soulful vocals, bumping grooves and jacking sample tracks, all a reflection of New York’s house sound of the time. These releases fuelled the explosive dance scene of the late 80s and early 90s, warehouse rave culture and UK pirate radio all relied heavily on Nu Grooves steady output of underground grooves to inspire a generation of dance music lovers, dancers, DJ’s and producers. Almost 30 years on, the spirit of this seminal New York label lives on.

Rheji Burrell takes us on a journey into the mind of an unknown man during his time in a mental ward through the power of music. This four track EP is as weird and whacky as you would imagine. Eerie track ‘Voicez’ gives us a sinister bassline and dark synths epitomizing Rheji’s talent of providing a picture through sound. ‘Vibez’ and ‘Guitarz’ catch the feelings of our patient on a good day, perhaps looking back at high points in his life, the uplifting melodies providing light at a dark time. ‘Instrumental Ward’ is another masterpiece from the man, Rheji Burrell.
