Release Date: 17th Jun 2019
“Nōpi is a newborn producer project from Ukrania. Established in early 2019, Nōpi was able to score releases on significant labels and his continuous flow of giveaways has quickly gained him some recognition. We are happy to help the young talent on his rise to the top and showcase 2 groovy, melodic house tracks, supported by our dreamy family-members Yoni Yarchi and Daniel van der Zwaag.
Daynight is able to deliver a bouncy and energetic bassline groove, further enforced with tight shakers and warm percussions. Gentle piano chords and soothing vocals are layered upon the bases and build a coherent atmosphere, that is characterised by subtle textures and smartly placed pad-sweeps.
With peculiar tension, main title track “The Forest” opens up its intro. A collaborating space of fieldrecordings set the mood of this song, while patient piano melodies and a warm, low-end bassline push the production forward. Subtle chants and an array of pads, create a haunting atmosphere – An adventure of mystical scoundscapes, that is reshaped by our NWS-dreamers Yoni Yarchi and Daniel van der Zwaag.
Yoni’s remix immediately takes a brighter and life-affirming turn, by implementing an uprising and warm bassline, energetic percussions and a flourishing synth, that is playful and charming. Elevating pads and charismatic textures, give Yoni’s take and innocent feel in the most positive way.
A beafy low-end and hypnotic rhythmics are the foundation of Daniel van der Zwaag’s deeper approach. The symbiosis of the lonely piano with wide and open soundscapes, create the atmosphere of a lonely walk in the woods. The complementing layers of a pushing groove and an intimate top create an interesting feel, that keeps up the mystery of the original, fortifies it and reflects the story of a forsaken place.”
