Nothing Is Real
NIR012 | 2021-02-15  
T​he beginning of 2021 sees electronic trailblazers Nothing Is Real showcase the truly global nature of their expansive sound and vision by profiling five Mexican artists on a compilation EP entitled ‘Made in Mexico’. Featuring a diversity of tracks from friends and collaborators Mufti, Montessori, Javier Martinez & Ulises Arrieta, Collossio & Cabizbajo and Tapia, this release demonstrates the deep roots that Nothing Is Real have made within the South American continent, as they put the talents of five swiftly rising Mexican producers on display.
Mufti opens the compilation with “Fields of Passion”, a slow burner that builds on the iconic new wave influences that Nothing Is Real are now known for. Throbbing basslines roll underneath shimmering synths that echo through a cavernous atmosphere, creating a sonic space in which the remainder of the EP flourishes beautifully. Following this up with elegance, Montessori taps the talents of Gael Gael for a collaborative venture, “Avant Garden”. As gentle increases in momentum build to a dramatic climax, the track serves as a prime example of the hypnotic rhythms and emotive melodies that Nothing Is Real are known for. Reaching the mid-point of the compilation, the duo of Javier Martinez & Ulises Arrieta keep the pace high with a six-minute jam that blends circular synth patterns, tribal drum fills and a solid, rolling 4/4 beat, before Collosio & Cabizbajo take a detour into electro with “Rapto”. On this track, the pair create something beautifully spooky out of futuristic FX and creative sonic manipulations that float above a gloriously resonant synth bass. Taking subtle cues from both Vangelis and vaporwave, this one is an impressive demonstration of how far the Nothing Is Real sound can reach. Closing the compilation with “Orbit”, a laudable display of musicality, Tapia treats us to a two-minute instrumental intro before a rapturous beat enters the mix.
